Cydle is a totally unknown player in the computing arena with no computer hardware products manufactured by it till date, but with the M7 MultiPAD it aims at making a name for itself here.
Yet another addition to the Android tablets family, the Cydle M7 MultiPAD is a 7-incher which comes packed with a detachable stand that lets you place the tablet stand erect for proper viewing of videos or surfing the web. Before this, the maker had announced it would launch the tablet in the second quarter of 2010 and at a price of $199, but it is yet to be launched. Although it was earlier promised that the M7 would pack in an integrated ATSC TV tuner, it seems the idea has been discarded as is evident from the product page and the user manual.
Talking of the hardware, the Cydle M7 will be powered by an 800 MHz ARM11 CPU and will come with 8GB of storage, 256MB of RAM, and a 7-inch, rather dismal 800x480 pixels touchscreen display. Other standard features include a G-Sensor, HDMI port, speakers, mic and headphone input, and support for full HD (1080p) video output. The tablet will run Google Android 2.1, an outdated version, to say, now that the version 3.0 aka Honeycomb has been released which has a much better orientation for the tablet form-factors.. Also being said is that the tablet will have a non-replaceable battery with a capacity of 4000mAh; that is what is seen in the product page, while the product manual published in FCC tell us it’s a 4500mAh one.
The Cydle M7 MultiPAD has now hit the FCC but even then there is no word by the company on its final pricing or its availability. Images of the product give out a good impression especially in terms of its usability and design; however, we still have to wait for an unknown duration to get our hands on it.
