Chinese tablet makers HaiPad is better known for making cheap Android tablets than good ones. I wasn’t particularly impressed with the HaiPad M701 I reviewed a few years ago. But the company’s latest tablets look a bit more appealing thanks to capacitive touch displays and Android 4.0 software.
The Haipad A101 is a new 7 inch tablet with a 1.5 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor, 512MB of memory, 4GB of storage, and an 800 x 480 pixel display. It has a capacitive touchscreen with support for 5-point multitouch.
The tablet supports WiFi and HD video playback and has a VGA camera and HDMI output. While the screen resolution is underwhelming, I suspect the company will make up for it by charging a pretty low price for this tablet.
The other new Android 4.0 tablet from HaiPad is the M10M10 with a 10 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel screen.
Like the 7 inch tablet, the HaiPad M10M10 has 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, WiFi and HD video support. But this model has a 2MP camera and Bluetooth.
If I’m reading the HaiPad website correctly, this tablet will be available in at least two models, with some featuring resistive touch panels and others equipped with capacitive touchscreens.
