ICD Gemini drinks Apple's milkshake

Tegra 2 tablet with features to spare


ICD has rolled out the Gemini, a feature packed tablet based around Nvidia's Tegra 2 SoC that could make the iPad's life a bit harder.

Thanks to the Tegra 2 chip clocked at 1GHz, Gemini can proudly display HD content on its 1,366x768 11.2-inch screen, but that's not all. It features 3G and it even allows users to make phone calls. The contraption also packs GPS, 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 EDR, FM radio, an SD card reader and MicroUSB connectivity.

Unlike Apple's blind iPad, the Gemini features two cameras, a 2MP fixed focus unit facing front and an autofocus 5MP camera on the back. Also, unlike the iPad, it can cope with Flash and it has a user-replaceable battery. As a final show of defiance and disrespect for Apple, ICD even went to the trouble of installing a magnetometer, or compass, which is an utterly useless feature unless you're Columbus or a fanatical iPhone 3GS user, in which case you've already got an iPad.

There are some downsides as well. The Gemini measures 300 x 191 x 15.6mm, so it's somewhat larger than the iPad. In addition, it's nowhere near as good looking as the iPad.
