China never ceases to amaze us, either with a $100 tablet with Android 4.0 or simply fresh Tegra 2 devices that get Android 4.0 earlier than big brand devices. Now, we’ve stumbled upon yet another cheap device that looks interesting and customizes the Android experience. Meet the Maiqi Electronics tablet:
This is a Tegra 2 slate with Android 3.2 Honeycomb on board and a design that reminds me of the ViewPad10S and LiPad T10. The device comes with a 10.1 inch capacitive display, with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels, 512MB of ram and 512MB of RAM. There’s also a HDMI port available, Bluetooth, a front camera and the OS is customized just like it’s shown in the image below, that’s actually pretty appealing.
It could still be just another ROM applied to Honeycomb and shipped with the slate, but it looks hot! Don’t be surprised if you see Ice Cream Sandwich on quite a bunch of Chinese tablets out there, since the small device makers are moving faster than the giants. Also, this product costs a mere $261, so if it breaks down, you won’t regret it too much… I guess.
