Fullerton, Calif. - South Korea-based OEM supplier
plans December availability of its first Cydle-branded tablet and is preparing to launch multiple new portable products at January's International CES.
The company's first tablet is an
Android-based $249-suggested M7 Mobile tablet. It features Android 2.1 OS, 7-inch
TFT touchscreen with 800 by 480 resolution, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, ARM 11 800MHz
processor, embedded 4000mAh lithium-polymer battery, gravity sensor, 1080p
video playback, HDMI output, e-book reader, 8GB flash memory with options up to
32GB, MicroSD card slot, Bluetooth, microphone, stereo speakers, email and
multimedia apps, and other Cydle apps.
The M7 comes with detachable stand that doubles as a screen cover when closed. The tablet weighs 1.29 pounds and is 7.88 inches by 3.1 inches by 0.41 inches.
The company, meantime, has been shipping its $169-suggested HD Radio-equipped T43H PND, originally shown at CES 2010. It features analog-FM and HD FM tuner with HD Radio traffic-data reception.
The HD Radio traffic feature receives traffic updates 10 times faster than traffic data delivered by analog FM stations, or up to 32kbps, compared with less than 300bps. As a result, HD Radio delivers traffic updates about every 10 seconds vs. every two or three minutes, and the bandwidth lets drivers receive traffic-flow data, not just accident reports, so users can gauge how fast traffic is moving, said iBiquity.
The T43H PND uses maps from Tele Atlas, owned by TomTom.
