S. Korean telecom titan KT to launch Android tablet PC
SEOUL, Aug. 30 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's top fixed-line operator KT Corp. said Monday it will release an Android-powered tablet PC next week in an effort to preempt the low-end bracket before the arrival of Apple Inc.'s iPad in the domestic market.

The "Identity Tab," made by South Korean network device producer Enspert Inc. and to be unveiled on Sept. 10, allows Web surfing and content download via wireless-fidelity (WiFi) networks but does not support access to the 3G cellular networks, KT said in a statement.
The 7-inch touchscreen device is powered by a 1-gigahertz processor and offers 8-gigabyte on-board memory storage and access to Google Inc.'s Android marketplace, said the company, also the No. 2 mobile carrier in the country.
