Computex 2012: $120 Meiying 7-inch Android Ice Cream Sandwich tablet hands-on [video]
As some of you already know by now, Android Authority is on the ground at Computex 2012, on the prowl for interesting upcoming Android devices. Such is the case with the Meiying 7-inch Android Ice Cream Sandwich tablet in the following video, which should hit various markets in the near future for the low price of $120. That’s a lot cheaper than Amazon’s Kindle Fire or the Google Nexus tablet that’s rumored to be unveiled soon end expected to be priced somewhere south of $250.
The Meiying tablet – that’s not the name you’re going to find in stores – is currently seeking FCC approval and the company is looking for retail partners. That’s why we still don’t have any availability details for you at this time.
But the device is apparently ready to offer a great user experience, without utilizing some of the most recent components found in this year’s tablets. We’re looking at a device that sports a 7-inch IPS LCD display with 1024 x 600 resolution, a 1.2GHz single-core ARM A8 processor, a 3,500mAh battery, Android Ice Cream Sandwich under the hood and lots of connectivity options including cellular support, HDMI and microUSB ports.
The most important feature of such a device is its price, a lot more competitive than what’s currently available from the major Android tablet providers.
