We’ve seen roughly 2,743,138 companies introduce Google Android powered tablets over the last 6 months or so. But very few have actually made it to market in the US. While we wait for big name companies such as Toshiba, Lenovo, Asus, and HP to launch Android tablets, there are a handful of options available. Archos and Camangi already sell 5 and 7 inch models in the US. And some companies have started importing the cheap Chinese tablets we keep seeing to sell in the US.

WiiPad is one of those companies. While the company from having a ridiculous name that looks like someone threw darts at a consumer electronics buzzword chart, the tablets actually look kind of interesting.

First up is the WiiPad Slim 7 inch Android tablet, which has a starting price of just $155.02. This model has 128MB of RAM, 2GB of solid state storage, and an SD card for additional storage. It has a 7 inch, 800 x 480 pixel display, 2 USB ports, WiFi, and a 2500mAh battery.This model runs the increasingly outdated Google Android 1.5 operating system.

I’m a bit confused about the processor, which is described as both 600MHz and 1.1GHz.  My money is on the former. WiiPad says the tablet can play 720p HD video. The most exciting thing about this model is probably the low price tag.

The company is also taking orders for a 10.2 inch tablet called the WiiPad Neno. This model has a 1GHz ARM Cortex A8-based processor, 256MB of RAM, and 2GB of storage. It has a 10.2 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display and support for WiFi or an external 3GB modem.

The 10.2 inch tablet runs Google Android 2.1, has 3 USB ports, an SD card slot, and can handle 1080p HD video playback.

If the 10.2 inch model looks familiar, that’s because it may just be a rebranded version of the Zenithink 10.2 inch tablet we spotted a few months ago.

Update: The folks at WiiPad were kind enough to send me a demo unit of the WiiPad Slim Plus to review. You can check out my first impressions and a brief video here.

  1. Brad can you put a link to all the tablets and pads you introduce in this blog.

    You see, many use your blog to see what models are there out there and at the moment, all the netbooks, pads, tablets etc are all jumbled up.

    You need to categorize your Product Database into Netbooks, Tablets, Android Pads etc

  2. it is actually an attractive device, but that name sucks! these companies spend millions getting these things to market and then have their children name them.

    Why does everything have to be blahPad? I guess with Pad stuck on the end people will equate it to some fruit!!!!

    1. “Dual” core processor. There’s the CPU and a DSP. The former running at 600mhz, the latter at 512mhz. 600 + 512 = 1,1ghz
