Today, Polaroid has given us a first look into what the company will be announcing when its booth opens up at CES next week. Three new tablets in Polaroid’s new Q line and a 4K resolution TV for $1,000 are the highlights of the show. Each of the new Q tablets is a different size, but they will all feature quad-core processors and run Android 4.4 Kit Kat.
The Q7, Q8 and Q10 will be featured next week at Polaroid’s booth at CES. Polaroid in a press release today said that these three WiFi-only tablets will be mainly focused on consuming media, but the front and rear cameras on each will allow users to ”capture their favorite memories, and share them via email and social media channels.” Polaroid was sparse on specs with their new Q line, but we can expect a Snapdragon 600 and a decent display. The Q7, Q8 and Q10 will cost $129.99, $149.99 and $179.99 respectively.
Polaroid is also looking to bring its brand name to the television market and they are starting big. A new 50″ Ultra High Definition 4K LED television will be announced at CES next week. Polaroid is boasting more than 8 million pixels and 3 HDMI inputs on its new 4K television that will retail for only $999.99.
