Another Chinese tablet shows up at the FCC, boasts HDMI and Android 2.3
For the most part, Chinese tablets which run off the Android operating system are known to spring up like popcorns on retail shelves in the country almost every other day, but the fact remains that most of these devices will never be able to see the light of day outside their own domestic market. However, it seems that an OEM by the name of Shenzhen Yifang Digital Technology is not content with limiting itself to the Chinese market, for word has it that one of the company's tablets have somehow managed to find itself in the FCC's office.
Chinese tablets can be such wonderful devices, no? After all, it is common knowledge that such devices produced by Chinese OEMs often boast extremely competitive prices in order to make them affordable for the common man on the street. And sometimes, just sometimes, these cheap, entry-level tablets can even boast specifications that are worthy enough to give their big-name counterparts a run for their money. You know, just like this M722HC made by a Chinese OEM known as Shenzhen Yifang Digital Technology, which has somehow managed to find its way over to the FCC's office.
According to a report published by Liliputing, the M722HC tablet is makes use of a seven inch capacitive touchscreen display which sports a native resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. While that might appear unacceptably low by today's standards, Liliputing has also added that the M722HC has been preloaded with version 2.3 of the Android operating system, a trait which is not known to be very common on such Chinese tablets, many of which are still powered by the older 2.2 version.
In addition, Liliputing has claimed in its report that the M722HC sports some rather decent specifications for an entry-level tablet. Apparently, the tablet is powered by a 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, while memory is provided by 512MB of RAM. Furthermore, Liliputing has also claimed that the tablet will reportedly support 1080p video playback for a variety of common video codecs such as H.264, DiVX, Xvid and MPEG (1 and 2), along with audio playback support for common formats such as MP3, AAC, WAV, OGG and yes, FLAC.
Lastly, Liliputing's report has confirmed that the tablet will feature built-in support 802.11b/g/n WiFi, and the bundled battery pack is reportedly capable of up to six hours of uptime "when watching videos or surfing the web over WiFi". Also present on the device are a HDMI-out port, USB port, microSD card port and a headset jack, along with options ranging between 2GB and 16GB of internal storage space.
No mention about availability or pricing has been announced for the M722HC tablet at this point of time.
