At the recent CCEF 2010 Shenzhen show in China, a company called Moonse released a new 7.0 inch touch screen tablet called the E-7001 running on the Google Android 1.5 operating system. The device features a 7-inch multi-point touch panel with a resolution of 800 x 480 and supports the type of multitouch mode of operation the iPhone uses. It has a nice interface, supports 3G HSDPA, contains a 1.3 megapixel camera and supports the usual type of Android application software.
The product costs RMB 900, equivalent to about $131. The configuration is pretty good for the cheap price, although unfortunately the system is not really stable enough at the moment and the touch screen has a slightly slow response time during use.
Can the tablet run chat software such as Skype, MSN , etc? Yes, don’t worry, it can. It can also run the huge range of Android programs of course, but the storage capacity which relies on T-flash is really too small, with a maximum of 32GB. But for mobile web browsing, watching HD movies, sending and receiving mail, accessing files such as pictures or use for listening to music, the E-7001 is competent. Run time is around 5 hours per charge.
