Ainol may be better known for their Full HD capable PMPs, but the company is turning to Android 3.0 Honeycomb and a proper tablet. According to some teaser spec pages, the so-far unnamed slate will have a 1280 x 800 IPS capacitive touchscreen display and run a SoChip Cortex-A9 processor.
They’re impressive specs, given tablets with IPS displays – such as the iPad 2 – are in relatively short supply. 1080p HD support is promised, with a fair amount of codec compatibility as well: MKV, AVI, WMV, H.264, XviD and MPEG.
Considering one the continued shortcomings of Android is its patchy media support out of the box, that could be enough to earn the Ainol slate a niche of its own. Pricing, screen size, release dates and other specs are still unknown at this stage.
