If you’re looking for a cheap Android tablet, Philips has a model for you: the 7 inch Ice Cream Sandwich-based PI3800. This device is based on the MIPS processor architecture from a company called Linley Group. The slate can be seen below and know that it’s available only in China for now.
The device comes with a proprietary audio technology called FullSound, that’s meant to eliminate the disadvantages of compressed audio formats. The manufacturer praises the audio quality of the product for its professional acoustic speaker setup, resulting in a clean and balanced sound. Philips PI3800 measures 13.2mm in thickness, weighs 365 grams, runs Android 4.0 on top of the 1GHz Linley CPU and has a 7 inch 16:9 display that supports a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution and multitouch.
There’s a main camera, a 2MP sensor at the back and a front VGA one, plus 0.75W speakers on board, 8GB of NAND Flash memory, WiFi connectivity, Bluetooth 2.1, microUSB connectivity and a Li-Po 4000 mAh battery. Sadly we have no price for this product… but I guess it’s below $200.
