Aishuo releases A820 tablet PC in China
We have covered a few Aishuo-branded products from China in the past, and from the looks of it, it seems that the Chinese OEM's lineup of low-cost, entry-level tablet computing devices has been doing relatively well in the market. After all, it has to be, considering how the company has announced the release of what appears to be yet another such entry-level tablet for sale in its domestic market.
Sleek-looking and high-performance tablets may be all the rage today, but it does not change the fact that such devices, which are often known for their equally sleek pricetags, are usually way to expensive for the average Joe to afford in thes form of an impulse purchase. However, the good news is that if you ever happen to find yourself in China, low-cost entry-level tablets, such as Aishuo's new A820 tablet here, are readily available for most people to purchase without breaking the piggy bank.
According to a report posted by M.I.C Digi, the new Aishuo A820 tablet makes use of a somewhat unconventional eight-inch display which utilizes resistive touch technology and sports the relatively low maximum resolution of 800 x 600 pixels. In addition, the A820 also features a paltry 512MB of onboard memory, although the 4GB of internal flash storage available on the machine is somewhat more substantial than some of the other entry-level tablets that are being sold in China.
In addition, M.I.C Digi has also claimed that the A820 will feature a Samsung S5PV210 processor clocked at 1.2GHz as its main muscle, and will boast support for wireless Internet connectivity via WiFi only. However, if it is of any consolation, M.I.C Digi claims that the A820 sports an upgraded WiFi module produced by Samsung which is capable of receiving wireless signals from as far as 50m away. And from the looks of it, it seems that the A820 also features a variety of I/O ports such as a single full-sized USB port, a micro-USB port as well as what appears to be a mini-USB port, along with a microSD card reader and audio output jacks.
That being said, a quick search on Aishuo's product page reveals that the A820 tablet as described by M.I.C Digi does not exist in the company's product lineup at all. However, we were able to find an A816 which, interestingly, boasts near-identical specifications as the ones M.I.C Digi has listed for the aforementioned “A820” tablet device, but with a slightly different design. Interesting.
