A Chinese company best known for LCD TVs, TCL has just departed from its roots and released a new tablet MID product. Called the Touchlife, the Android tablet looks virtually identical to the recently released RAmos W7, leading us to believe that it may simply be a rebranded version of the original product from RAmos. The specifications also sound very familiar with a 4.8-inch LED backlit WVGA touch screen, a 600MHz Rockchip RK2808 processor, Android 1.6 OS, WiFi, support for a wide range of audio/video codecs, and 720p HD video playback. TCL has also listed support for Adobe Flash, which I assume to be Flash Lite, but there is no final word on pricing or a release date. With the RAmos W7 priced around $150 we can probably expect a similar figure for the TCL tablet.
Sporting the same very sleek and slim metal body design with a chrome back and a thin surround black bezel, the Touchlife is an attractive compact MID. The company has quoted battery life to be an impressive 5 hours during video playback and up to 7 days of standby time.
I've always thought the RAmos W7 looked to be a very good budget MID with a great design and decent specifications for the price and I think the same conclusion can be applied to the TCL Touchlife. Has anyone picked up a W7 since it went on sale? We would love to hear your impressions of it in the comments section. Check out more images of the Touchlife below.
