Cydle M7 MultiPAD Android tablet hits the FCC
The Cydle M7 MutiPAD is a 7 inch Android tablet which comes with a detachable stand you can use to prop up the tablet for watching videos or surfing the web. The FCC has published the user manual, some test results, and other information related to the tablet.
The company actually promised to release the Cydle M7 for $199 during the second quarter of 2010 with an integrated ATSC TV tuner. That never happened, and now it looks like all mention of the TV tuner has been dropped from the product page and the user manual.
The tablet is now said to have an 800 MHz ARM11 CPU, 8GB of storage, 256MB of RAM, and a 7 inch, 800 x 480 pixel touchscreen display. It runs Google Android 2.1, has a G-Sensor, HDMI port, speakers, mic and headphone input, and support for 1080p HD video output.
The product page says the tablet has a 4000mAh battery, but according to the user manual the battery has a capacity of 4500mAh. They both agree that the battery is not swappable.
There’s no word on whether the $199 price tag still stands, or if the M7 will actually make it to market this year.
