Novo 7 ¿ Un Tablet Ice Cream Sandwich de 7″ con pantalla capacitiva y muchas cosas más por menos de 100$ ? Aqui tienes todos los detalles

Últimamente hemos tenido noticias de tablets de precios bastante reducidos y lejos de los 400€ o más que valen los Galaxy Tab, Transformer o Xooms, he incluso disponibles en nuestro mercado pero la mayoría de ellos pecaban de versiones obsoletas de Android o algún otro detalle que nos echaban la ilusión por los suelos. Ahora, la empresa Ainovo nos sorprende con el anuncio de un tablet de 7″ por 99$ y que además es el primero con Ice Cream Sandwich con el permiso de Asus y su Transformer Prime. Más abajo os dejamos un video grabado en el que Amit Rohatgi, Jefe de arquitecturas móviles en MIPS Technologies nos explica las novedades y bondades de este tablet de bajo coste pero con prestaciones más que interesantes. Aquí os las detallamos:

  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
  • Procesador Ingenic JZ4770 MIPS-BasedTM XBurstTM CPU a 1GHz. Tiene arquitectura SoC -System on chip como el Snapdragon S4-
  • GPU Vivante GC860 con soporte OpenGL ES 2.0 y a 444 MHz de velocidad
  • Pantalla de 7″ capacitiva y multi-touch -no se habla de la resolución-
  • Cámaras frontal/trasera de 2 MPx
  • WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
  • USB 2.0, HDMI 1.3 y ranura microSD
  • Sistema de archivos exFAT para reproducir archivos de mas de 4Gb
  • Reproducción de video 1080p
  • Autonomía de 6 horas jugando, 8 de vídeo o 30 de standby

Como veis, pinta muy bien. Por ahora está disponible en China u online a través del Ainol.com -en chino- y Ainovo.com aunque en el momento de escribir este artículo y cuando le hemos dado al icono de comprar nos dice que el producto no está disponible en ese momento. No sabemos si es por el país o por temas de Stock. Nos faltaría saber cuánto costaría el envío a España, aunque si compañías como dealextreme.com se consiguen hacer con su distribución nos saldrá muy económico su envío a nuestro país.

Aquí tenéis el comunicado de prensa completo de MIPS Technologies anunciando el nuevo dispositivo:

MIPS Technologies and Ingenic Semiconductor Announce Availability of World’s First Android™ ‘Ice Cream Sandwich’ Tablet

1GHz, Low-Power Tablet Sets New Market Standard at Sub-$100 Price Point

SUNNYVALE, Calif. – December 5, 2011 –MIPS Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MIPS), a leading provider of industry-standard processor architectures and cores for digital home, networking and mobile applications, and Ingenic Semiconductor, a leading China-based CPU provider for mobile multimedia applications, today announced worldwide availability of the world’s first tablet based on Android TM 4.0, known as ‘Ice Cream Sandwich’, that is retailing for less than $100 (U.S). The tablet is powered by Ingenic’s JZ4770 mobile applications processor, which leverages a MIPS-BasedTM XBurstTM CPU running at 1GHz.

According to Andy Rubin, senior vice president of mobile at Google, “I’m thrilled to see the entrance of MIPS-Based Android 4.0 tablets into the market. Low cost, high performance tablets are a big win for mobile consumers and a strong illustration of how Android’s openness drives innovation and competition for the benefit of consumers around the world.”

The new Android 4.0 tablet is available in China and online through Ainol Electronics Co., Ltd. It will be available in the United States and other geographies within the next several months under brands from companies including Leader International Inc. and OMG Electronics Ltd.

The new tablet is available with a 7″ capacitive multi-touch screen. 8″ and 9″ form factors will be available soon. All versions include support for WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, USB 2.0, HDMI 1.3 and microSD, as well as 3D graphics with the Vivante GC860 GPU, 1080p video decoding and dual front/rear cameras. The XBurst processor’s power-efficient architecture provides extended battery life-the 7″ tablet draws less than 400mA during active web browsing.

“We are pleased to join with MIPS to announce these breakthrough high-performance, low-power, low-cost Android 4.0 tablets. Combining the elegance of the MIPS architecture and Ingenic’s innovation in processor design, we are bringing a new level of processor technology to mobile devices. As we continue to collaborate with MIPS to broaden the mobile ecosystem around the legendary MIPS architecture, we anticipate even broader proliferation of our devices worldwide. We believe the mobile world will be more versatile and colorful with another processor joining in,” said Qiang Liu, chairman and CEO, Ingenic Semiconductor.

“The openness of Android is enabling a new level of connectedness and interaction between devices and between people across the globe. We are excited to be a part of the Android ecosystem delivering on that vision. We applaud Ingenic’s accomplishment in developing this new high-performance, feature-rich Android 4.0 tablet, and offering it at a price point that makes it widely accessible. We look forward to teaming with Ingenic as it continues to develop MIPS-Based mobile innovations,” said Sandeep Vij, president and CEO, MIPS Technologies.

Ingenic JZ4770 SoC

The Ingenic JZ4770 SoC inside of the new tablet is one of the first MIPS-Based systems-on-chips (SoCs) targeted for mobile devices that delivers 1GHz+ frequency, increasingly a requirement for tablets and other devices that incorporate rich multimedia and high-performance applications/functionality. The JZ4770 SoC is powered by a MIPS32 compatible XBurst CPU designed by Ingenic. The XBurst CPU core adopts an innovative ultra-low-power pipelining architecture which consumes less than 90mW in 1GHz (with L1 cache), and the entire SOC consumes ~250mW with the CPU and video engine operating under full load. In addition to the XBurst CPU, the JZ4770 SoC integrates an optimized 1080p video processing engine, OpenGL ES 2.0 3D graphics processing unit from Vivante Corp. and numerous on-chip analog and application blocks such as audio codecs and GPS.

Pricing and Availability

Ingenic’s JZ4770 SoC for Android 4.0 tablets is available now. The new Android 4.0 tablet is available in China and online through Ainol Electronics Co., Ltd. atwww.ainovo.com. The 7″ tablet retails for less than $100 (U.S.) non-subsidized. The tablet will be available in other geographies within the next several months. For more information, visit http://en.ingenic.cn/.

Ahora podeis ver aqui el video oficial del canal MIPS en Youtube aunque como podreis comprobar, el grosor de los tablets que se ven aqui es ‘ligeramente’ mas delgado que el de las imagenes que se ven en la tienda de Ainol.com.

Seguiremos atentos a este y otros dispositivos que nos puedan acercar el mundo de los tablets al resto de usuarios que quizás no pueden gastarse esos 400 o 500€ en uno de los de marcas reconocidas.
