Point of View shows its 10-inch Tegra tablet

Written by Slobodan Simic

Android 2.2 and Tegra 250

After releasing quite a few netbooks, some based on Nvidia's ION chipset, Point of View decided that it is time to take a piece of that tablet market as well. Point of View has announced two tablets, both based on Android. The 7-inch Android 2.1 and the Tegra based 10-inch Android 2.2 tablet should both be available in November and they look quite good.

The 10.1-inch Mobii Tegra Tablet is a quite interesting one, as although some have been announced, this is the first one that has actually showed up. It is based on Nvidia's Tegra 250 chip, dual core 1GHz Cortex A9 and thanks to it it supports hardware accelerated 3D/Video and Adobe Flash support. This means that those YouTube and 1080p videos are actually going to work on this little piece of tablet heaven.

The rest of the specs include a 10.1-inch capacitive multi-touch screen in 1024x600 resolution, 512MB of system memory and 512MB of NAND flash memory, support for microSD cards (up to 32GB), has 802.11bg WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, optional 3G adapter, integrated front-facing 1.3M webcam, integrated microphone and speakers, USB, HDMI and headphones connectors. As noted, this one runs Android 2.2 Froyo OS and although it doesn't have support for Android Market it does come with AndroidPit. It features 3300mAh battery, but the actual battery life hasn't been announced.

The 7-inch is a bit less interesting as this one is based on AMD 9 Rockchip 2808 working at 600MHz and comes with Android 2.1 operating system. The 7-inch screen is detailed as Advanced resistive touch screen with 800x480 resolution. It has 256MB of system memory and either 4, 8 or 16GB of NAND flash memory. It supports micro SD cards of up to 32GB, has a 1500mAh battery and features integrated webcam, microphone and integrated display stand.

The most surprising thing is the actual price tag, as the 10.1-incher should be available for around €320, depending on the region, which is a decent price tag for such device. Unfortunately, we don't have a price for the smaller one but we are sure that both should show up pretty soon as they are scheduled to launch in November.

ARM 9, not AMD 9.

This 600MHz CPU is very slow compared to an ARM Cortex A8, the 600MHz ARM 9 is 1/4 of the power of the 1GHz Cortex A8. However it has hardware assistance for 720p decode.

This either means the 7" tablet will be very very cheap and cheerful (under $150) or underpowered for its features, and thus frustrating to use.
