While the world of high-end (and therefore high-priced) Android tablets is on the verge of popping off, it’s good to see there are still a few companies devoted to the low-end, dirty and cheap slates using Google’s OS. The CherryPad America is a 7-inch, Android 2.1 tablet made on the cheap to provide consumers with an affordable device to smudge up on the go. Specs include a resistive touchscreen at 800×480 resolution, an ARM11 CPU clocked at 800MHz, 256MB RAM, and 2GB of internal storage. A MicroSD card reader is also included for extra storage.
The press announcement claims there are plans to bump the device up to Android 2.2, but we will believe that when we see it. Cherrypal CEO admits the CherryPad America is no iPad killer, but it still comes in at the killer price of $188.
