Embargoed for 00:01, 01 April 2014: Ocado Technology today launches the world’s largest tablet, the category defining 42” sLablet. With its desktop-class architecture, the sLablet leads the large tablet market, which includes Samsung's recently released 12.2" Galaxy Note Pro and Apple's rumoured 12.9" iPad Pro, due later this year.
Neil Simmons, Vice President of Ocado Technology's Quadro-Fabricated Division said: “The market for tablets of this size is literally massive. Precision-engineered and weighing in at a svelte 35,000 grammes, the sLablet has been designed with every consumer in mind, from David Haye to Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.”
The sLablet’s ultrafast 300 mbps Wi-Fi capability and powerful 4k resolution of 3840 X 2160 makes web pages, text, images and video look incredibly sharp and realistic, making content even more immersive. Moreover, its next generation 12 MP HD camera features image stabilisation so muscle spasms induced by holding the sLablet don’t ruin users’ selfies.
Priced at £597, the sLablet provides up to 1hr battery life (following a 19hr charge) and is only 20cm deep, ensuring complete unportability. It is also equipped with two unique self-adjusting strap mount systems, enabling the user to attach the sLablet to their back like a backpack or around their neck.
Neil Simmons continued: “We thought, why be shackled by the constraints of a 7" tablet? We wanted to escape the claustrophobic conformity that these devices were inexplicably enforcing on consumers.
“In order for us to stay at the forefront of the latest consumer trends, we needed to look backwards to what we've done, then to look sideways to what was going on around us. Finally we then looked forwards to what we haven't done. We therefore decided to create the world’s biggest tablet to allow consumers to easily browse the world’s largest grocery range of over 34,000 product lines.
“The sLablet is 500% larger than a traditional 7” tablet and therefore, 100% better than rival supermarket tablets.”
Ryan Lipowitz, Head of Technological Innovational-Innovations at Ocado Technology added: “We found that 80% of the time, 40% of people needed a device that had 120% the power of desktop, 12% of the time. Once you hold one in your arms you will understand what an incredible advancement this is, delivering all-lunch battery life in the biggest full-sized tablet in the world.”
