It’s been a while since we heard any news from one of the forefathers of the Mobile Internet Device and given their MID-free CES stand in January this news comes as a surprise from Aigo.
The N700 is a 7-inch multitouch tablet running on Android 2.1, it’s powered by a dual core 1Ghz ARM Cortex A9 processor and Nvidia Tegra 2 chipset meaning HD video playback and output via a HDMI port. Other specifications include 512MB of RAM, up to 32GB of flash based storage, 800×480 capacitive multitouch screen, WiFi, USB, microSD and a 3120mAh battery. It even has a 3G option.
Given its specification it would certainly make an excellent sofa surfer and media playback device, although the on screen resolution maybe low for an 7 inch device.
It has been noted that this device looks very much like the Compal NAZ-10, which given the rebranding of the Aigo P8860 by Compal isn’t surprising. The NAZ-10 claims 16 hours of HD playback and costs $300.
