MAG Digital’s tablet appears as rebranded iMito IM7 with full specs
Previously showcased during CeBIT, the MAG Digital WinCE tablet, also known as the MDT70CT, caught our attention with its simple, minimalist design, impressive media capabilities, and highly customized Windows CE interface that had more than a passing resemblance to Android. Originally said to be available to distributors within a month, it looks like the tablet has already been picked up by a company and rebranded as the iMito IM7 to be released in China.
Along with some new attractive images of the MID and its interface, iMito has released full specifications of the device previously unavailable at CeBIT. Check out the full list and new images after the break.
7" TFT LCD resistive touch screen, WVGA resolution (800×480)
ARM11-based processor at 800MHz
256MB DDR2 RAM
Built-in 4GB NandFlash with support for MicroSD cards up to 32GB
High-Speed USB OTG 2.0, and USB Host 1.1
Built-in 1400mAh lithium polymer battery
1080p Full HD video playback
Built-in HDMI video output interface
Built-in 300,000 pixel VGA webcam and microphone
Built-in GPS Navigation Module
Support for external 3G Module
Overall it's a pretty decent list of specifications and to top it off, the IM7 is apparently only 14mm thick. There are still question marks over the CPU for me, as at CeBIT it was previously specified as a dual-core Telechips processor, whereas here it is merely listed as an ARM11-based chip. To achieve the 1080p video playback a plain ARM11 wouldn't suffice, so it is likely to be something more exotic, like the nVidia Tegra for example.
But until MAG Digital or iMito release the specs of the chip we can't be sure. Although the WinCE interface looks impressive, I'm still hoping we will see an Android version sooner rather than later. How do you think the IM7 compares to other media-centric MIDs like the Archos 5 Android, WITS A81, and the upcoming Archos Home Tablets? Share your thoughts in the comments!
