China-made tablets have a new member among them: the Raynova Ray1 slate, priced at $150 and bringing forth an 8 hour battery as the main appeal. The interface on this device is said to resemble traditional Chinese ink painting and its design style is linked to the lotus styling.
The icons look as if they were created with ink and the device comes with a 7 inch multitouch capacitive display, 800 x 480 pixel resolution and 512MB of RAM. Also on board there’s a 2 megapixel camera, an USB port, a 3500 mAh battery (with 6 – 8 hours of functioning time) and a 1GHz Freescale chipset.
Launch is scheduled for March 18.
