Aigo is not new to the MID business, having released previous units such as the P8860 and the Maemo-powered N500, but they are looking to make a splash with the introduction of their first TWO tablet-style MIDs powered by Android. The 5-inch E500 and 7-inch E700 will run Android 1.6, make use of capacitive touchscreens with multi-touch support, and bring it all together with a Rockchip 2808 processor. Both sport sleek, all-metal casing. Take a look at the E700:

And the E500:

Looking pretty good, if you ask me. The devices will come with built-in support for e-book and e-magazine services, and will be aimed towards those looking for an engaging media experience in the same vein as the Archos 7 Home Tablet. Pricing  is said to be around 1500 Yuan (~$220) most likely for the smaller of the two MIDs, but more pricing and availability details should be forthcoming soon as the devices are slated for a release some time in May.
