CeBit 2012 seems to be all about tablets that are not as well known as those made by famous brands. We saw an iPhone 4 bigger brother, a Galaxy Tab 10.1 copycat and more devices. This time we get to see in action the Joyplus M10PQ slate, with a Pixel Qi display. Its biggest advantage is the direct sunlight readability and the specs are not bad at all.
At first sight, this device looks like a cheap Chinese tablet, but when you look at the specs you’ll find a 10 inch 1280 x 800 pixel display, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage and a 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 single core CPU. Joyplus M10Q is shown in action below, in the hands on video at CeBit 2012. The Pixel Qi display here is a full color screen when the backlight is on and as an almost black/white display with high contrast when the light is off. That high contrast mode is perfect for reading in ambient light, especially outdoors.
Eliminating the backlight also reduces power consumption by up to 80%. Know that the Joyplus M10PQ runs Android 2.3, but an Android 4.0 update is in the works right now. And here’s the demo of the device:
