There is a new introduction to the family of Android tablets and is one more to add to the steady stream of Android based Tablet PCs coming out of Chinese companies. This one is named the Phecda P7 that derives its name from its manufacturer Shenszhen that is located in Phecda.
Then of course the 7 inch screen of the Phecda P7 too is one reason why its named P7, which otherwise boasts of an improved hardware configuration along with latest software that matches the hardware. The 7 inches 800×480 resolution resistive touchscreen is built on a Telechips TCC8901 platform and is powered by an ARM11 processor running at 650MHz. It has 256 MB of onboard RAM while storage space in the P7 amount to 4 gigs of flash memory. That’s quite cramped and that’s also the reason why its maker has included a SD card slot to further expand storage options.
The OS is Android 2.1 with a promise that the same would be upgraded to the latest Android 2.2 Froyo by October. Among its other specifications, the most significant include a USB 2.0 port along with a mini USB port as well. The S7 tablet also includes an HDMI output, which means the tablet will allow its users to output videos. This apart, the S7 is also capable of playing full HD 1080p video. The tablet comes with a 1300mAh battery which ensures the tablet will provide for 4 hours of working time on a single full charge.
Also, a good thing with the Phecda P7 is its design that is a break from the plethora of tablet PCs that tends to incorporate the same looks as that of the Apple’s iPad. Instead, what you have with the Phecda P7 is a fresh new take of tablet PCs as far as its looks are concerned. The coming of the Phecda P7 is also impressive as it is an indication of the Chinese makers’ growing ability of producing better and more powerful products though unfortunately, most of these devices never get to see the light of day outside of China.
The device is expected to enter the Chinese market sometime during October at a price of around US $220.
