It’s lighter and cheaper than any other touch-enabled Chromebook and it even has a 360-degree rotating screen. The ASUS Chromebook Flip C100 is unique and almost a Chrome OS tablet. At a price of $249 there aren’t many questions that consumers really need to ask.

$175 Chromebook for emerging markets?

Tags: , , ,


Digitimes reports that Lenovo will put their name on a $175 Chromebook with a Rockchip CPU in the early part of 2015. Digitimes don’t have a great track record on rumors so this may never happen but it’s interesting to think about the larger question of cheaper Chromebooks.

Moonse E7001 gives us a Taste of Android on a Rockchip

moonsee7001 That Rockchip CPU has been turning up in a lot of devices recently. It’s a Chinese manufactured CPU based on the ARM9 design [We’re checking on that due to varying information] and clearly it’s cheap because all the devices I’ve seen with it recently have been around the $200 mark. The Archos 7 Home Tablet is one and we’re expecting to get the first reports of that soon but in the meantime, here’s a look at a device with a familiar industrial design. Its the Moonse E7001 and its running Android 1.5 (on an 800×480 screen?)

Full specs are available here and you might notice that it matches the Archos 7 Home Tablet almost spec for spec. Will there be any need to buy this from China when it can be had locally for much the same price (U.S. and EU markets, post and import taxes included.)

Stay tuned to Shanzai for their reports as they continue their testing.

Aesthetically its OK but there’s a hint that the UI isn’t that smooth in the video. I’m not surprised and I won’t be surprised if the Archos 7 Home Tablet performs in a very similar way.
