Eston N97 tablet MID available for preorder in China


Previously announced in November of last year, Eston's N97 tablet MID follows in the footsteps of its predecessors—the MID-01, 02, and MID-05—although I find it strange that they seem to have abandoned their previous naming conventions to confuse us with a name identical to the well known Nokia smartphone. Like the MID-05, the N97 abandons the slider form factor in favor of a simpler slate design with a thinner bezel and thickness. The tablet comes pre-installed with Android 1.5 with Windows CE as an option featuring a 7-inch WVGA touch screen dominating the front of the device with some hardware buttons and a small trackball occupying the right side of the bezel.

Other specifications include an ARM11-based Marvell PXA303 XSCALE processor clocked at 624MHz, WiFi and 3G connectivity, a 2800mAh li-polymer battery rated for around 4 hours of use, microSD card support up to 16GB, and support for the usual video, music, image formats as well as a built-in ebook reader.

Apart from black, white and pink options are also available with the N97 available for preorder now, although there's no definitive word on pricing.
