Chinese PC makers Joyplus are showing off a series of tablets at Computex. And rather than stick its eggs all in one basket, the company is going with a little variety. Joyplus is demonstrating 5, 7, and 10 inch tablets, with the largest models running Windows 7 and the smaller units running Google Android.

The 10 inch model looks like an oversized iPod touch, complete with a home screen. But in addition to Winodws 7, this model has HDMI, USB, and SD card slots.

The 5 and 7 inch models have ARM-based processors from Marvell and TeleChips.

According to the Joyplus web site, the 5 inch model has a 624MHz Marvell PXA303 processor, 800 x 480 pixel display, 128MB of RAM, and a 2600mAh battery. It runs Android 1.5, which feels a little dated at this point.

The 7 inch model appears to have a 600MHz dual core ARM926 CPU, 800 x 480 pixel display, 128MB of RAM, and a 2000mAh battery. The specs seem to imply that this model runs Windows CE, although the promotional photo shows Google Android.

The folks at Shanzai.com caught up with Joyplus at Computex and shot a brief video, which you can see below.

  1. hmm, pxa303, thats the xscale series that marvell bought from intel, iirc.

    more powerful then your average arm9, but i think it still looses out to arm11 and cortex.

  2. Hmm — I wish the 7″ version had a battery at least as dense as that in the 5″ version. Bit of a mismatch as the specs are here reported. (Not saying they’re inaccurately shown — typical bad design decision, if they’re listed correctly.)

    Even if it’s wildly optimistic (best case scenario type figures), I wish “expected possibly battery life” was part of every battery powered device’s public-facing specs.

    (Batteries lose their potency, different types of use affect it, screen dimming may mean a device is “on” but not practically usable, I realize — lots of problems, but still. I’d rather hear “up to 3 hours of battery life!” and at least then have better knowledge, like “OK, it’s not going to last 6 hours!” and “I suspect this’ll last 2 hours, when new, ideally.”)
