The Enspert E201 is a 7 inch Android slate out of Korea that’s actually looking rather impressive with a 1GHz CPU, PowerVR SGX 450 GPU, and legitimate access to the Android Market, all on Android 2.2 (Froyo). It’s cheaper than the Galaxy Tab [tracking page] to boot!
We’ve got one inbound for testing and we’re looking forward to it as Chippy was impressed with a family member device, the E301, that he had a look at during CES. Here’s a rundown of the E201 specs which are looking quite right for the price of $349:
- Android 2.2 (Froyo)
- ARM Cortex-A8 CPU @ 1GHz
- 512MB of RAM
- 7 inch capacitive touchscreen @ 800×480
- 3MP rear camera and unspecified front facing cam (likely 640×480)
- WiFi b/g/n & Bluetooth 2.1
- Mini-HDMI port
- Mini-USB port
- Full sized SD-card slot
- 3.5mm headphone jack
- And all the usual sensor goodies (accelerometer, GPS, manometer, ambient light sensor)
The Enspert E201 is available exclusively from Dynamism for US buyers. Their pre-sale starts on February 1st with the first shipments going out on the 15th.
As soon as we get our hands on it, we’ll run some benchmarks to see how it stacks up to the Samsung Galaxy Tab. The only places that it’s lacking at the moment seems to be in resolution department (the Galaxy Tab’s screen is 1024×600). Here’s some shots to tide you over until we can give it a thorough looking over, stay tuned:
