Engadget saw an upcoming 7" Compal tablet at CES 2010, this device runs the Google Android operating system and is powered by NVIDIA's Tegra 2.0 SoC. The HD video playback capabilities of the device are impressive, but the reporter says the touch capabilities of this Compal device are horrible.
This 7-inch tablet / slate / MID / whatever was running Android 2.0 and packed Wifi -- sadly, there was no GPS or Bluetooth to be found. Up top there was a SIM card slot as well as a microSD card slot for extra storage, and an HDMI out port around the side. Unfortunately, the device is plagued from the start as its rocking a resistive touchscreen instead of a capacitive one. Despite the next-gen Tegra chip inside, our user experience was pretty abysmal, with touches barely registering and general usability pretty low.
