SMiT invading CES with MID tablets in tow
Happy new year from Pocketables and welcome to the first post of 2010! I'm certain over the next couple of days most news will have something to do with CES, which is set to start this Thursday, from the 7th to the 10th of January (press events, which we'll be missing this year, begin tomorrow). To start the ball rolling, we have learned that Chinese company SMiT (Shenzhen State Micro Technology Co. Ltd.) will have a presence at CES and be exhibiting a range of MID tablets.
You may remember the SMiT MID-560 (right), a 5-inch Android tablet with an iPhone-esque design. This will be one of the products on display and will be joined by a new Android tablet currently known as the Home Tablet (shown above and below). These images surfaced online a couple of days ago without any information regarding the manufacturer or specifications, but it now appears that it's the latest addition to the SMiT product portfolio. Unfortunately, no new information regarding specifications is available apart from the fact that it includes a 7-inch WVGA touch screen and runs Android.
In addition to this, SMiT will also be showing the MID-1208 (below), another 5-inch MID tablet/PMP with a WVGA touch screen, WiFi, 3G, GPS, and a receiver for mobile digital TV reception supporting standards such as CMMB, DVB-T, and ISDB-T. Other details are unavailable, but this looks to be a development of the MTV-T1200 that ran on Windows CE 5.0. Judging by the image, the MID-1208 is likely to also use WinCE.
Hopefully we only have to wait a few more days before all is revealed, especially with regards to the interesting looking Home Tablet.
