Play an enormous game of Angry Birds on the world’s largest Android tablet

Today in Tech

If even 10" tablets are too small for you, then this comparatively gargantuan 65" slate may suit your taste better. Developed by Istanbul-based company Ardic, what could be the world's largest Android tablet is a touchscreen high-definition LCD with support for basic gestures like scrolling and pinch and zoom. The LCD isn't a full-fledged tablet, however — it still needs to be controlled by a dock-connected 10" Honeycomb slate made possible by modifying Android to support 1080p high-definition output.

Once connected to the smaller tablet, the 65" giant works like any other Honeycomb device out there, including the capacity to play games like Fruit Slice as the developer demonstrates on the video above. Right now, the display can only recognize two-finger input but Ardic plans to incorporate multi-touch input soon. While it still depends on another device to work, the gigantic tablet has features akin to other slates on the market like front and rear cameras, a microSD card slot, and even 3G and wifi internet connectivity.

As Engadget puts it, this isn't just another crazy prototype. The company is marketing the product as an alternative to touch-enabled interactive white boards called Smart Boards, and is already in talks with some customers from the education and business sectors.
