More detail and less singing after the jump.

These cheap Android running tablets out of China are just so dull! So I’ve been forced to introduce the latest one in a Spongebob style!

Ok the Heiner Haipad is a bit different from the rest of the crowd being that it uses a 10 inch screen rather than a 7 inch. Also dispite coming in a iPad box the Haipad isn’t very iPad looking. There are 3 buttons on the face for a start and the bezel is much more narrow.

Other than that we’re looking at the same sort of kit found on the hordes of other devices floating about. There’s the ever popular Rockchips CPU running at 720M/hz, which to me is a very bad marketing decision as most people I speak to want at least 1Gh/z.
Heiner also skimp on the RAM stating there’s 256Mb inside, however when checking the system profile Android can only see 128!!
Android is 2.1 again a bit of a marketing oddity as 2.2 is seeping out and 2.3 will be arriving soon!

Gizchina News of the week

The 10 inch touch screen is comparatively smooth in use and manages to do a good job displaying text, images and video.

Speaking of video, 720p video playback is supported but don’t expect the Haipad to keep you entertained for extended periods as watching video at that setting means a 2 hour max battery life.

You also get WIFI, an mini SD card reader, audio out, and 2 mini USB plugs.

With the number of lack luster tablets on the market it’s only a matter of time before an enterprising Chinese factory pops along with something really different, innovative, 3D even! and blows the competition away!
Thats what we hope at least!

    Let me guess, it’s got a resistive screen too?

    Apple managed to get up to 10 hours out of the ipad whilst the competition can barely manage 3 hours. How did Apple do this?

    By making its own low-powered chips that is how. All these clones are simply running off the shelf chips and they’re not known for conserving power. Power saving chips cost money.

    The ipad uses in effect a 6600mAH battery but most clones use a misery 3400mAH if you are lucky.

    The ipad works with a 1024×768 screen. But most clones try to sell you a 800×600 screen because it’s cheap. So you have to live with getting far less shown on screen due to the low res.

    One day some Chinese manufacturer will wake up and offer a decent spec’d piece of hardware. But not today it seems. 🙂

      Yup resistive screen again!
      here’s another too:
      The tab makers seem really happy to be treading water which is no good for those of us out there who want a super awesome iPad 2. If Apple don’t have any really competition we’re likely to only see a slight upgrade, like what happened with the iPhone line!!

    Just goes to show they don’t understand the average Western customer.

    I’ve often thought this when I’ve purchased media devices made in the East. They often have a slight odd-ball way of thinking in terms of the user interface that jars with our Culture.

    I bought a LG smartphone last year and I find it so awful to use, I couldn’t believe some engineer in the East would think that its way of working was in any way right.
    It put me off getting an Android phone for ages.

    I see Toshiba have launched their Folio 100 tablet now and yes, its got a capacitive screen but only 1024×600, so it displays less than an ipad.

    Its got a decent battery life for once and it’s got Android 2.2 but get this – no Android marketplace.

    So ham-strung right away.

    Why would anyone buy a tablet with no access to the Google Market place? It beggars belief.

    Toshiba claim the Marketplace doesn’t support large screen devices. So do what Apple did and get the device to scale up the screen? Was this beyond Toshiba abilities or did they just ignore the issue thinking their own version of the marketplace would really convince us it’ll be as good?

    I’m thinking we consumers should simply wait for Android 3.x to come out.
