    Ensopad is real

    Dear IpadOne,

    I want to make it clear that we are an Hong Kong Company, founded by Europeans. Our product is a rebranding with some software improvement, of the Smit 560, here it is MID-560£¨Android MID£©__Mobile internet device__shenzhen state micro technology co.,ltd. I am aware that the front page of enso-now.com looks sketchy, but at the end, there is no scam at all. We have offices in Hong Kong and Shenzhen, if you need further clarifications you can give me a call to one of the numbers listed on our website. I do agree with you anyway on the general reliability of Chinese companies.( The previous sentence does not mean in any way to sound racist.) I just mean that China is developing and they have some time to go, before they get to American/European standards. That is we are in business, we will offer decent English language customer care, high standards dealing with payment, shipping, warranty, privacy, etc. The lack of informations and high resolution pictures on our website is due to the fact that we are waiting for the delivery of our first batch. Get back to us in a week or two, then the website will be updated and you will not "hopefully, feel like calling us "scammer" again.

    Thanks

    I think the JooJoo sales will be pretty good if the hardware is "complete" -- the software that's currently on it doesn't really matter since it's just Linux anyway.

    @enso

    Will you be producing any larger size tablets? I think many would be interested in an Android Tablet between 7-10". (including my self!)

    Until the Joojoo gets out of its legal problems, I doubt that it will gain much traction. Had the Joojoo shipped last year when it was supposed to and at its original price point of $299, it very well may have taken the wind out of Apple's sail. Now, I think Apple is going to win the day.

    I don't know about the JooJoo. While it does get flash and a USB port it doesn't have a flush/hidden SD or Micro-SD slot to expand the 4GB of internal memory, which is not going to cut it at all. Talk about being tied even closer to your computer then the iPad.

    1. HP Slate
    [​IMG]

    Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer showed off this HP tablet prototype very briefly at CES this year. It wasn’t the Apple iPad thunder-stealing moment predicted by the media, but it is one of many indications that the tablet form-factor is about to become practically ubiquitous.

    This particular HP slate will run Windows 7, setting it apart from the field of tablets running Android you’ll be seeing on the rest of this list. More details about the device were recently revealed by HP in the video below.



    2. Dell Streak

    [​IMG]
    During its CES 2010 keynote, Dell talked about working on multiple “upcoming slates,†including one prototype it showed off, which is currently called the Streak. This particular model is only 5-inches, though, which puts it less in the direct path of the iPad and makes it more akin to the existing line of mobile internet devices (MIDs) like the Archos series of Internet tablets. Not much else is known yet about the Streak, or what other kinds of tablets Dell might be cooking up, but Engadget did snag some hands-on photos of the device.

    3. Asus Eee Tablet

    [​IMG]
    Asus is the company responsible for kicking off the entire netbook craze. They were also showing off a prototype of a 9-inch tablet at CES this year. The device has four control buttons reminiscent of the favored layout for an Android-powered phone, leading to the logical speculation that the Asus tablet might well run Google’s mobile operating system.

    JKK Mobile snagged a video of the prototype, embedded below.



    4. Compal Tablet
    [​IMG]

    This working prototype was shown off at CES 2010. Made by Compal, the 7-inch Android 2.0 tablet runs on the new, high-powered next-generation Tegra 2 processor NVIDIA announced at CES. With this chip, a device can support 1080p video playback, yet retain startlingly good battery life. NVIDIA says it already has several partners lined up to make Tegra 2-based tablets, so expect more of this type of device in the near near future.



    5. Notion Ink Adam
    [​IMG]

    Another tablet running Android and powered by the Tegra 2 chip is the Adam, a 10-inch tablet from Indian startup Notion Ink. It uses a screen technology from Pixel Qi that combines the best of a full color multi-touch LCD display with a low-power reflective mode that’s readable in direct sunlight.

    Notion Ink says the Adam should come to market in the second quarter of this year, with a target price somewhere between $300 and $800. Slashgear got a lengthy video demo (embedded below) and oodles of pics of the device.



    6. MSI

    [​IMG]
    Wait for it: It’s another tablet prototype running Android and powered by the Tegra 2, this time from MSI. Engadget found it “a bit thicker and heavier than we’d like,†but on the plus side its 10-inch screen is “plenty responsive.â€

    7. Quanta
    [​IMG]

    One last prototype running Android on the Tegra 2 chip: the Quanta tablet got some early dings in terms of usability. Still, it is only a prototype, so the Wi-Fi and 3G-enabled tablet device could still be a contender in the about-to-be-crowded tablet space.

    8. ICD Vega
    [​IMG]

    Seattle-based startup Innovative Converged Devices announced its Vega tablet back in November 2009, and now the device is officially headed to T-Mobile UK sometime before the end of 2010. Yet another tablet based on Android, the Vega will have a large amount of screen real-estate at 15.6-inches. Check out the full spec list and a hands-on demo video embedded below.



    9. Google and HTC
    [​IMG]

    This one is sadly of the purely rumor variety, but it’s worth mentioning for its potentially game-changing effects. Like it did with the Nexus One, if Google were to take a direct hand in developing a tablet computing device with a trusted partner, it could be a serious contender in the newly emerging tablet wars.

    The cited report says the Google Tablet has already been in development for the past 19 months. HTC is a plausible logical choice for the trusted partner as well, given its existing relationship with Google and the Android operating system. Still, with nothing yet official on the books, the Google Tablet is the most speculative entrant on this list for now.
