Affordable computer maker Cherrypal has unveiled a $188 Android tablet the company claims is targeted at the “sub iPad market.”
The seven-inch device will ship with Android 2.1, but will update to 2.2 in Q4. It features a Samsung ARM 11 800 MHz processor, 256 MBs of DDRII RAM, 2 GB NAND Flash, Micro SD (1x) reader, and WiFi 802.11 b/g. The seven-inch resistive touchscreen will have an 800 x 480 resolution and built-in gravity sensor.
Ports include a headphone jack and DC input. The Cherrypal tablet will support USB 2.0 through an external adapter. Also, an optional 3G modem is available. Expect six to eight hours of juice from the 3200 MAH battery.
The low-cost Android device will be housed in an aluminum case and weight 1.1 pounds.
“The CherryPad America does not compete against the Apple(C) iPad. The CherryPad addresses the sub-iPad market,” said Cherrypal CTO Max Seybold.
