Philadelphia company competes in the tablet market

Stream TV Network’s offices at 20th and Chestnut streets aren’t much to look at.

The screens on their tablet computers, though, are something to see.

 

“The 10 inch tablet has a 1366 resolution which is the highest resolution of any tablet out there on the market, and any tablet you’re going to see pretty much this year,” said Mathu Rajan, the founder and CEO of Stream TV.

The company started selling a smaller, less sophisticated tablet late last year.

This week it’s upping the ante, releasing the eLocity A10. It runs on Android, and unlike the iPad can play Flash video.

“It’s an alternative to the iPad,” said Rajan. “It’s a little bit cheaper–$100 cheaper–and also it has a lot more versatility than the iPad.”

Sounds great, but the brand power behind Apple is pretty strong. Rajan says they can compete; to a point.

“Well, if you’re an Apple customer and you’re an Apple person, you’re obviously going to want to stick with Apple,” he says.

Rajan says later this year, the company will sell a tablet that produces 3D images–without making the user wear those geeky glasses.
