In May, Fudzilla wrote about a Chinese manufacturer with an Atom X3-C3130 processor which was being sold on Geekbuying for $69.99. This small amount of cash bought a 7-inch 1024x600 IPS display, 512MB of LPDDR2, 4GB of eMMC storage and Android 4.4.4.
Now a Polish company called Kiano is bringing the Atom X3 to the German, Austrian and Polish markets. We can assume it will be available in other EU markets soon.
We haven't seen it available on any of the German price comparison engines but in Poland it sells for PLN 299.00 (€ 70.59). The tablet should start selling today from 2000 locations throughout Germany and Austria.
The first is the 7-inch tablet KIANO SlimTab 7 3GR based on Atom X3-C3130 processor with 3G. It comes with 7 inch IPS 1024x600 resolution, 1GB RAM and 8 GB storage. It has the latest and greatest Android 5.1 and will be available in black or white.
Atom X3-C3130 is a dual-core 64 bit Atom X3 which clocks up to 1GHz. The SoC is manufactured by Rockchip in 28nm. It has Mali 400 MP2 graphics supporting Open GL ES 2.0. The maximum resolution is 1280x800 at 60 FPS and a H.264 encode at 720p30 and decode H.264 VP8@1080p30. The platform supports eMMC 4.4.1, up to 13 megapixel rear / 5 megapixel front camera, WiFi, HSPA+ with 3G of up to 21 Mbit per second.
The tablet with DDR2 800 is not the highest end tablet but it does the job.
Intel tells us that there will be other devices with Intel Atom x3-C3230RK (3G) as well as Atom x3-C3440 (LTE) but didn’t give away many specifics.
The Atom x3-C3230RK (3G) Quad core Atom X3 version is going to launch with Android while the Atom x3-C3440 (LTE) Quad core Atom X3 is aiming for Windows based tablets but we don’t have any specifications or the pricing yet.
