Hanvon is the leading e-ink e-reader maker in the Chinese market with 70% market share, now they are also moving into making Android tablets. This one has a Samsung Hummingbird 1Ghz ARM Cortex-A8 processor, 512MB RAM, 7″ capacitive screen, and Hanvon has designed some custom home replacement user interface.
This is what I found at a booth at CeBIT:
Shenzhen AUDE Technology Co Ltd is showing their tablets at CeBIT 2011, the Freescale i.MX51 ARM Cortex-A8 based tablet is 0.4Kg can retail at below $200 while the x86 one is 0.9Kg and could retail for above $400.
This is a 10.1″ 1280×800 capacitive new Tegra2 tablet made by Gigabyte. This is not a final design, they’ll tweak and improve the design before mass production to be selling this by July this year around there.
Gigabyte is launching this dual-hard drive NAS product, powered by a Marvell ARM processor, it has dual-LAN and a bunch of embedded software features.
AMD is doing some work on their x86 stuff, their new atom alternative, medium/low power consumption, medium/low pricing, puts some nice performance in there for USB3 and HDMI output stuff on such compact PC. This kind of motherboard can be bought for about 100 euros, one only needs to add RAM and a Hard Drive to this to have a full Desktop PC.
Cideko is showing their Android Set-top-box with support for up to 1080p YouTube, and their interesting high-end remote control design with built-in keyboard, accelerometers, infrared and gyroscope.
Shenzhen Ider Technology is showing two designs for Hummingbird ARM Cortex-A8 powered Android Set-top-boxes. One even has a built-in 2.5″ hard drive compartment. This type of box could potentially soon run Google TV experience OS!
My first time playing with the Nintendo 3DS! This is going to popularize non glasses 3D screen for the first time! The 3D experience is actually awesome, it’s impressive, it works! I just wish Nintendo would install Android Honeycomb on this device and do something like the Playstation Suite, provide all their games legally to the Android platform. They should also make a 3G/LTE-enabled modem add-on for the 3DS to allow for online gaming outside of WiFi hotspots, and they should do a games subscription model, $10/month to access all the games as downloads, including new level upgrades and online gaming for all games.
