The newest Android tablet to come out of the MID proving grounds of Shenzhen is from a company called Sinotech, and like some other recent Chinese devices we've been seeing, this latest addition leaves behind the vanilla combination of a Rockchip RK2808 processor and Android 1.5/1.6 and opts for the newer, more powerful 800MHz Telechips 8902 CPU and Android 2.1 OS. The rest of the specs are also quite promising with 256MB RAM, 4GB local storage, support for microSD cards up to 16GB, hardware support for full HD 1080p video playback, HDMI output, optional GPS, and a 1300mAh li-on battery. Unfortunately, the 7-inch WVGA touch screen is resistive in order to keep the price down, and the exact range of connectivity is currently unknown but is sure to include the standard b/g WiFi.
The tablet has unashamedly been designated as an iPad clone, although I wouldn't say the design is a blatant copy with Sinotech only adopting certain features like the slightly curved metal back. In fact, the new device is very similar to the Phecda P7, only with a slightly different design and a more powerful Telechips CPU. As a low cost tablet, the Sinotech MID looks like a competitive entry into the market with the advantages of more processing power and a newer version of the Android OS over many of its rivals. The device should be available in China shortly, although the exact price and international availability is unknown. See a few more images of the tablet after the break.
