Pandigital announced a line of Android media tablets that deliver advanced features and functionality, giving consumers a choice in devices that best fit their digital lifestyle. The first three tablets in the line – the Pandigital Planet, Pandigital Nova and Pandigital Star – will be available this month to consumers starting at $159 MSRP. The fourth product in the line, the flagship product, will be announced and available to consumers in Sept. These powerful new tablets feature Cortex A9 processors with embedded hardware 3D graphics engines, providing fast response times and enhanced performance for consumers, whether watching the latest action movie, playing the hottest video game or watching a recent vacation video. Combining performance with design, the Pandigital Planet, Nova and Star allow users to multitask in style. All three Wi-Fi-enabled devices feature 7-inch full-color touchscreen displays enclosed in a light weight, sleek, black housings with a brushed metal-look front bezel. Users can easily read the latest best seller, surf the web, check email, post on the most popular social media sites, catch up on the news or entertainment, check out family vacation photos, and more while at work or play. Additionally, users have the flexibility to personalize their tablet by downloading the Android applications that are most interesting to them from the preloaded app store, unleashing the devices’ full potential.

All three devices feature the powerful Android operating system – the Planet and Star are Android 2.2 and the Nova is Android 2.3. All the tablets are upgradeable to new Android operating system versions and will be scheduled for future firmware releases as they become available. The new tablets offer an excellent viewing experience with 7-inch full-color LCD displays. The Planet and Nova offer a 600×800 resolution and the Star’s thinner width utilizes an 800×480 widescreen resolution and easily fits in one hand. In addition to the back-lit Android buttons, the three devices each provide users with a sensitive ActiveTouch touchscreen interface with multi-touch support. Additionally, the orientation sensor automatically adjusts between portrait and landscape mode in most applications when the devices are tilted and the 2-Axis Accelerometer is great for controlling games that need simultaneous steering and acceleration.


The integrated memory (2GB for the Planet and Star, 4GB for the Nova) lets you store hundreds of books, apps, movies, music and more. In addition, the built-in MicroSD card reader accepts up to 32GB memory cards for virtually unlimited storage. The built-in mini-USB On The Go (OTG) port provides a way to connect directly to a computer for easy file transfers (Mac and PC compatible), supports a number of peripherals, such as wired mice and keyboards, or wireless mice and keyboard combinations and can also be used to re-charge the internal battery. Each of the tablets has a compact and sleek design measuring approximately 5-inches wide, 7 ½-inches high and 1/2-inch deep and each weigh less than 14 ounces, making them extremely portable. All three devices come with a rechargeable Li-ion battery and get up to 6 hours of use (performance varies based on use –averaging longer for reading with no Wi-Fi and shorter for continuous streaming video).

    We have tried almost everything to get these Andriod Pandigital Star 2.2 Tablets to take the keyboard. Are we doing somrthing wrong? We both have the R70B200. Two of these were suppose to be gifts to others but we can not get the keyboards to work on the tablets. Strangely enough, I checked them on my laptop and they do work.

    I haven’t been able to download any apps for the pandigital star tablet that I bought for my young granchild. I don’t have Wifi, and I keep getting the message that I have no connection, but why can’t it work when I hook it up to my laptop? The icon is on the screen, but when I try to download games for her, I get the message that I need the “robot” icon for it to work.
