Much of the hype and hysteria surrounding to so-called 'tablet revolution' has quietened down in recent weeks following the UK launch of the Apple iPad.

The five new Russian born tablets will range in size from a puny 4-inches to a much more respectable 7-inches, and whilst four of the new portable devices will sport Android operating systems, one will turn its back on the Google OS opting instead for the Windows CE 6.0 offering.

With just a 5-inch display, the Android-powered Rover Go G50 tablet will boast 128MB of RAM, a 2GB hard drive, and 3G and WiFi connectivity alongside a microSD slot and USB port. Its larger 7-inch capacitive touchscreen touting sibling, the Rover TegA W70 willflaunt an impressive spec sheet that includes HDMI connectivity, NVIDIA's Tegra chip, 512MB RAM, 4GB of storage and an inbuilt webcam.

Whilst pricing details for the range of upcoming Rover tablets have yet to be announced, we are expecting to see the Russian handheld devices hitting shelves by October this year.
