Chinese PC maker HiVision has a tendency to pump out cheap mini-computers that we never see in the US. But that doesn’t stop them from showing up at trade shows. The company is on-hand at CeBIT in Germany this week, and jkkmobile spotted an interesting 7 inch tablet that could sell for as little as $100… in China anyway. No word on whether any Western distributors plan to pick this little guy up.

The tablet runs Google Android and has a 7 inch, 800 x 480 pixel resistive touchscreen display and an 800MHz ARM11-based processor. It comes with 2GB of storage, 256MB of RAM, 802.11b/g WiFi. You can add Bluetooth, 3G, and GPS support with USB peripherals. The batter is 4200mAh which should provide up to 6 hours of run time.

Spec-wise, it’s hardly the most exciting tablet we’ve seen. But it’s one of the cheapest.

  1. I think the price is right to make it popular. It would be neat to see it in the USA at about $100. I would get one just to have at wifi hot spots where it would be easier to carry and be able to use web oriented apps.

  2. I wish it would come to the states at around $100. It would be worth picking up just to see what it could do and to try out the tablet format to see if it is worth buying a more expensive unit.

  3. make it thinner and 9″ not 7″ and im buying one. this is all ipad needs to be (including the price)… looks very promissing
