Thereâ€™s always a surprise or two on the last day at an exhibition. I spotted this newbie on the Sequans booth at MWC and it wasnâ€™t until I reviewed my photos this evening that I bothered to look any further into it. It turns out to be quite interesting.
The Moblic E7 has a 4â€ WVGA touchscreen in an attractive body which includes a slider keyboard, a 600Mhz CPU, 8GB Flash, Wimax Support, Micro SD card and a huge, 2000mah battery. As for the details on the CPU, weâ€™re not sure although the Wimax chipset supplier (Sequans) mumbled something about Atom before confessing he really knew nothing about it. The large battery does suggest a hefty CPU though so maybe this is a Moorestown handset!
More likely is that itâ€™s a 3D-capable ARM Cortex-A8 platform than anything with Intel inside and that would pair nicely with the 256MB RAM for some full-on Internet or gaming action. OS is unknown at this point although we I note that Mobilc announced a partnership with Microsoft in the middle of this year. Maybe itâ€™s a Zune-Xbox-Windows 7 Series thingy!!!
We managed to tease it out from behind glass but only had time for pics and a look around the device which felt very well built. Obviously weâ€™ve sent off an email requesting more details.
You can clearly see that this is designed for gaming on the go.
The Moblic webpage yields the followingâ€¦
Definitely a competitor to the ODroid. What do you think?
