Boeye MID 700 tablet runs Android with Apple-esque aesthetics
It seems that the hottest emerging gadget categories these days are internet tablet MIDs and e-readers. Perhaps one of the most speculated products that supposedly intends to cover both of these areas and more is the long rumored Apple Tablet.
At the GITEX trade show in Dubai, China-based Boeye revealed their MID 700 tablet running Google's Android OS and featuring a design strikingly similar to a device one would usually expect from Apple: an enlarged iPhone/iPod touch with a larger 7" WVGA screen but the same full glass face with a black and silver bezel. Other specifications from Boeye's website state the tablet uses a Marvell PXA303 processor at 624MHz, has 128MB of RAM and 2GB of onboard storage, and includes WiFi, 3G, and Bluetooth connectivity.
Storage capacity can be expanded using a microSD slot supporting up to 16GB, and a front facing camera and GPS are also included. A hands-on account of the tablet by Tech Lahore mentions its lightweight, thin profile and good build quality.
MID tablets running Android are nothing new with the recent release of the Archos 5 Android, for example, but the Boeye MID 700 hopes to stand out with its Apple-esque aesthetics and a competitive price of less than $300.
