At gamescom 2012 snakebyte first announced snakebyte eins. The 7” tablet offers total console feeling on your TV when paired with a Bluetooth controller and a docking station, but still features the comfort of mobile gaming even when the docking station is not used.

Powered by feedback from gaming and mobile communities as well as the positive responses from trade and press, snakebyte will also be offering a 10” version of snakebyte eins.

“The decision to offer a 10“ version was ultimately influenced by the community. A 10” version offers different possibilities, like being propped up on a table. This gives gamers a bigger screen size, too.  If you are more into compact and mobile and if you would like to use your snakebyte eins on-the-go, the 7” version is a handy option”, Mike Steup, Managing Director of Sunflex Europe GmbH explains.

snakebyte eins will be available in Q1 2013 starting at 199€.
