Cherrypal Launches Powerful 7-Inch $188 Android 2.1 3D Tablet Computer for the Sub-iPad© Market

Posted on 16 October 2010 by Android

Cherrypal Enters Into Exclusive Deal With Green Shopping Site Zecozi

PALO ALTO, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 7, 2010 — Cherrypal, a California-based manufacturer of high quality, low-energy consuming and affordable personal computers, today announced the availability of its new sub $200 tablet computer, the CherryPad America.

The CherryPad was designed for consumers who are looking for an affordable, powerful, high quality, and low energy-consuming tablet computer with the ability to run the Android operating system. CherryPad is powered by the fast Samsung ARM11, (CPU + GPU + DSP, OpenGL 2.0) 800 MHz processor and runs Android 2.1 and all Android applications. An upgrade option to 2.2 is planned for the fourth quarter 2010.

The CherryPad America features a 7-inch resistive touch widescreen display (no stylus needed) at 800×480 resolution with built-in gravity sensor. Memory, storage and wireless functions include 256 MBs of DDRII RAM; 2 GB NAND Flash; Micro SD (1x) reader, and WiFi 802.11 b/g.

Standard I/O ports include USB 2.0 supported by an external adapter; 3.5 mm headphone jack, built-in speakers and microphone, DC port, optional external 3G modem. The CherryPad America’s Polymer 3200 MAH battery has a run time of 6-8 hours. The device weighs just 1.1 pounds and is housed in a sturdy aluminum case. MSRP of the CherryPad America is $188.

“The CherryPad America does not compete against the Apple© iPad. The CherryPad addresses the sub-iPad market,” said Cherrypal CTO Max Seybold.

According to Seybold, CherryPad has been designed for consumers who seek a lower cost, more compact tablet PC with the ability to run Android.

“The CherryPad is neither an iPad killer nor an iPad clone, it’s a completely different product designed for a different market,” Seybold said. “The screen of the CherryPad is only 7-inches big, the processor is slightly less powerful, and the CherryPad comes with Android 2.1 and not Apple’s iOS.”

At a MSRP of $188, the price for a CherryPad is also less than half of the iPad.

“Early user tests confirmed the CherryPad user experience has been extremely positive. Users appreciate full access to the Android Market, its powerful processor, battery run time, and high quality,” Seybold said.

Cherrypal Partners With Zecozi

Cherrypal also announced a strategic partnership with Zecozi ( www.zecozi.com), a new online shopping site for conscious consumers. All Cherrypal products will be exclusively sold through Zecozi in the United States, with the exception of volume buyers. Every Cherrypal comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, as well as a 1-year replacement warranty.

“We are a hardware manufacturer first and need to focus on our core competence in order to drive down costs and offer quality products that consumers can afford. We can offer our products for such a low price because we are frugal with non-product related costs. When we looked for a strong partner who shares our green, open and fair corporate value system, Zecozi was the obvious choice,” said Cherrypal CEO John Collier.

Analyst: Tablet market likely to become Android-controlled

Posted on 11 October 2010 by Android

Despite the iPad’s current success, Android will eventually control the lion’s share of tablet sales, suggests Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster. “Ultimately, we think that Apple won’t have the majority of the market share,” he tells Business Insider in a new video interview. “It’ll probably be with Android-based tablets.” The analyst also takes a skeptical view of sources claiming Apple could sell up to 45 million iPads in 2011, calling the figure “a little bit aggressive.” 20 to 25 million is said to be a more realistic number.

Is LG’s tablet delay really an Android Gingerbread delay?

Posted on 10 October 2010 by Android

It appears that the delay for LG’s inaugural Android tablet device, which was originally planned for the fourth quarter of this year, might not be entirely LG’s fault. A story out of Korea by Yonhap News Agency quotes two LG officials regarding the LG tablet delay, and hints that the source of the delay could very well be Google and the upcoming Gingerbread version of its Android smartphone OS.

Alessi Tab, Over-Designed Android Tablet for ‘Young Housewives’

Alessi Tab, Over-Designed Android Tablet for ‘Young Housewives’

Posted on 01 October 2010 by Android

Italian design-house Alessi’s new Alessi Tab comes on like a digital photo-frame with benefits. The Android-powered tablet is meant to be used at home – the odd angular shape means it prefers table and countertops to pockets and bags.

Astonishingly, the press release says the Tab is aimed at the ‘young housewife’, who will presumably move the Tab from room to room whilst enjoying real-time news from the ANSA agency, weather from Epson (?), recipes (of course!) from Domus magazine’s Silver Spoon cookbook, internet radio and nutritional information. Further, she can make video calls and watch digital TV broadcasts (it actually has an antenna) while “having fun in the kitchen.”

If all this looks to you like the future as envisioned by Mad Men, you’re not alone. Even the styling has a slick, retro 1950s feel to it. This is all the weirder when you see the specs, which are decidedly up to date:

  • 10.1-inch capacitive display
  • Auto-rotation sensor (accelerometer)
  • Android 2.1
  • 1GB RAM
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g
  • DVB-T with detachable antenna
  • Front-facing camera and microphone
  • HDMI output
  • USB port
  • SD card reader

There’s no mention of processor speed, but we suppose the average housewife wouldn’t want to worry her pretty little head about things like that. Aside from the awkward shape, though, the Tab looks very capable, and all that installed crapware can presumably be cleaned off.

Price and availability are both still secret. You can be it’ll be expensive, though: Alessi charges $150 for a teapot.
