RTA Phantom gets added to growing list of Android-Rockchip MIDs


Rockchip's HD-decoding RK2808 is quickly becoming the de facto standard for powering Chinese MIDs running Android, so anyone could have guessed that the chipset and operating system both feature prominently on the upcoming RTA Phantom MID's list of specs. Its 5-inch touchscreen, built-in WiFi, and HD video playback are all standard fare these days as well, but two things that are pretty unique for a device of this caliber are its decidedly un-Apple-like looks and that little trackball resting between two pairs of hardware buttons.

During this time of slate abundance, with just way too many units being compared to the iPhone or iPad than a sane person can be expected to bear, it's refreshing to see something like this in the long line of unreleased Android MIDs without keyboards. When the Phantom MID's number will be called is anyone's guess, but at least there could be a break from the monotony soon.
