Honron HM07A Android tablet's most interesting feature is its back

Whoever said "it's what's on the inside that counts" had no idea that one day, the Honron HM07A would be released. It's one of those Rockchip-powered Android tablets that have been popular in China over the last few years, although obviously outfitted with the more recent ARM9-based RK2818 chip, so there's nothing new or exciting to speak of here.

What makes this device interesting (and challenges that whole "what's on the inside" idea), other than its slight HTC Flyer resemblance and 7-inch capacitive touch screen, is that crazy design on the back. It's wild!

The front of the HM07A is less notable, though the blue LED accents and Windows Vista wallpaper are worth mentioning. There's clearly a custom overlay sitting atop Android 2.1 (yes, 2.1) and filling the 800 x 480 display (yes, 800 x 480) too, but really, the only thing making anyone do a double-take is that back.

The rest of the specs, if you care, can be found at the link below. And if you want to hold this tablet in your hands, then AliExpress can make that happen for about $161 shipped to the US.

[Honron] Thanks, towee!
