One of Android’s initial goals was to lower the cost of manufacturing “smart” devices, a savings that could/would be passed onto consumers. The cheap labor in China certainly doesn’t hurt and HiVision showed off a 7-inch Android tablet at CeBIT 2010 that will cost only about $100. Check out the video snagged by JKKMobile:

The company claimed “under $100” but an exact price, date and location remain to be seen. Fortunately the company DID include specs displayed front and center:


No need to squint – I got them right here:

  • Processor: Samsung 6410, 800 MHz with DSP (Arm 11)
  • Storage drive type: 2G
  • System RAM: 256 DDRII
  • Operating System: Andriod (they made the type, I’m only the messenger)
  • Wireless connection: 802.11b/g/Wireless
  • Support external: 3G, Bluetooth, GPS, USB Dongle
  • Software: Web Browser, E-Mail, Google, Map, Clock, Camera, Camcorder, Messaging, Weather
  • Battery: 4200mAh
  • Working time: 6 hours

Technology capabilities up. Price down. I like.
