New Rockchip Android tablet shows up at J&R
It looks like the generic tablet explosion is building up for a second go round.
This 7″ Android tablet is running Android v2.1 on a 1GHz CPU with 4GB Flash, microSD card slot, Wifi, speakers, g-sensor, and USB Host. it also has that weird little silver thing; I don’t know what it is. Curiously enough, it has a RK 2818 CPU. According to Archos, that CPU runs at 600MHz; here it is listed at 1GHz.
You can find it at J&R for $159.
P.S. I’m calling this tablet by the CPU maker because I’m pretty sure that they designed it. Crystalview is like Archos and a bunch of other companies in that they have slapped their brand on a device that Rockchip designed. There’s nothing wrong with that, but as far as I’m concerned the maker is more important than the brand.
