If you’ve been thinking of diving into the tablet market recently and are looking for an alternative to Apple’s iPad, you may want to direct your attention to Aigo’s new tablet: the N700.
Running on a 1GHz ARM Cortex A9 processor coupled with 512MB of memory and NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 chip, the N700 certainly knows how to make an entrance. You’ll find a 7-inch capacitive display with a resolution of 800 x 480, inbuilt storage of either 4, 16 or 32GB and, of course, Android 2.1 to match.
There are plenty of ports for various peripherals on the N700. You’ll find a USB port, microSD slot and HDMI output too.
With an option for 3G WWAN, Aigo’s tablet is certainly a tempting offer, although there’s no word on pricing and availability as of yet and the company's website doesn't seem to offer any additional information, other than an error message with a full backtrace available for the world to view when I clicked on a random product and a "copyright 2008" signature. Call it a hunch but I'll be passing on this one - my gut feeling is this Chinese company may need to invest in QA a bit more first.
A tipster over at Engadget noticed this video on YouTube, showing off the Compal NAZ-10, which happens to look extremely similar to the N700… Hopefully we’ll be seeing it on the market sooner rather than later.
