Calling it a tablet may be a bit of a stretch, but that’s the ad copy a Japanese company is using on a new 21.5-inch Android device.
“A 21.5-inch Android tablet comes to market!” — is how Japan-based Kouziro is advertising a new touch panel display that runs Android 4.0 on top of a Texas Instruments OMAP dual-core 1GHZ processor.
The “Frontier” branded FT103 sports a 21.5-inch 1,920×1,080 touch display, 1GB of memory, 8GB of storage, webcam, Wi-Fi, and HDMI, microUSB, and microSD ports.

And Kouziro is marketing it as a tablet — for watching movies, scanning news sites, and playing games.
It will go on sale in July for 34,800 yen or about $ 439.
