Haven’t seen enough cheap 7 inch Android tablets for your liking? It looks like a new 7 inch model with a 600MHz ARM9 processor could be on the way to the US. The FCC has published a filing for a tablet with a not-particularly-catchy name. Meet the Chinaleap M1 tablet.
The tablet has a 7 inch, 800 x 480 pixel display, 128MB of RAM, and 8G of flash storage. It has a Rockhip RK2808A CPU with support for 720p HD video playback. It also has a USB port, a mini USB port, and HDMI output as well as a microSD card slot and headphone jack.
There are volume keys on the side of the tablet, and a power button at the top. Toward the bottom (or left side depending on how you hold it), is a menu button that looks an awful lot like the primary button on an iPhone or iPod touch. The whole tablet was clearly designed to look like an iDevice.
It doesn’t look like there are back, search, or home buttons. It’s not clear from the user manual what version of Android the ARMM1 is running. There’s also no word on what type of touchscreen it uses, how much it will cost, or when it will be available in the US.
