Eken isn’t exactly a household name, but earlier this year the company introduced a 7 inch Android tablet which has been rebranded and sold under different names around the globe by a number of companies. Now Eken is back, this time with an 8 inch tablet with a distinctive design and a 4:3 screen ratio.
The Eken M005 isn’t exactly a state of the art machine. It has a 400MHz VIA 8505 CPU, and 128MB of memory.
The tablet has an 800 x 600 pixel display, 802.11b/g/ WiFi, and 2GB of flash storage. It has an SD card slot, USB port, headphone jack, and webcam.
When Eken previewed the tablet in August, the company said it would run Android 2.2, but Shanzai.com reports it’s actually running Android 1.6.
