ARMdevices got an eyes-on look at another Android device recently. Hard Kernel introduced their ODROID-T, a 10-inch tablet device geared toward high-definition video and gaming fans. He showcased the device’s video capabilities by playing a very nice looking Toy Story trailer in full 1080p (hooked up to an HDTV via HDMI).

The playback was very smooth and I couldn’t really notice any problems with framerate. The demonstrator states it’s using Samsung’s PC 110 platform (which is using an ARM Cortex A8 processor). The 10-inch touchscreen is capacitive and works fairly well from what we could see. He also showcased a 3D game and everything looked wonderful. It doesn’t look like Android was optimized for the device just yet, but it’s expected to get a nice makeover before it eventually hits the market.

Also, if you like to look at electronic guts, be sure to watch the end of the video as he shows off what’s sitting beneath the hood. Make your way to Hard Kernel’s site now if you want to learn more.
