Kobo Vox leaks on Future Shop, due October 17
Kobo's seven-inch Vox Android tablet very briefly showed up on Canadian retailer's Future Shop website on Thursday, though it has since been pulled, The Digital Reader reported. Despite this, official specs were gleaned, and an image capture of the webpage in question is available. The price tag was set at $250 CAD ($242) and the release date was October 17, at least in Canada.
The tablet showed up at the FCC six days ago, but what version of Android the Vox is running isn't yet known.
The color touchscreen has a resolution of 1024x600 and Wi-Fi is built-in, along with 8GB of storage and a microSD card slot. A single speaker is present, and the listing shows access to the Android Market. Battery life is said to be six hours, and the device weighs 400 grams.
Not all of the specs may be final, which could be the reason for the page getting pulled.
