Various gadgets from Celestial differ not only a variety of quality of performance (from horrible to excellent) and copying the better-known models (from the outside to complete), but consistently low price. At this time a little-known producer Hott said that his plate with a 4.8-inch touch screen and Google Android operating system will cost less than $ 100. However, the rate is not for the consumer, and for wholesale suppliers, but it is impressive.

The device was first demonstrated at CeBit 2010 and is based on the ARM9-based processor from Rockchip. It says the manufacturer, the model can reproduce video at resolutions up to 720p. And here is manifested especially the Chinese approach to engineering solutions: own screen with a resolution of 800x480 pixels can not play HD resolution, and HDMI-output device does not have.

The model, still nameless, is running Android 1.5, supports the Android Market, Gmail, Google Maps and other widgets through Wi-Fi connection. Built-in memory may be different - from 512 MB to 16 GB. Thus, in any case has a slot for memory cards. Battery life up to 5 hours.

As can be seen on the photo device is more compact than the Archos 5, although there is not much smaller diagonal screen. Mass production will begin in April, and the company expects to realize Hott model with 512 MB of memory on the wholesale price of $ 92.
