The FCC website usually features a new Android tablet almost every day. The recent one is the Hena MID-1107CM. The company that manufactures the tablet is not as popular as other manufacturers. Even the website stipulated in the user manual of the device seems not existent. However, the device appears to be a possible solid entry in the category of low cost Android tablets despite its seemingly questionable battery life and its unpopular brand.
The Hena MID 1107CM has a capacitive touchscreen display screen of 10.1 inches and 1024x600 pixels. Its processor is the Boxchip A10 ARM Cortex A-8 with 1 GHz of power. For a low cost tablet, it features the Android 4.0 software of Google, a RAM of 1 GB and storage capacity of 4 GB to 16 GB. Other specs of the Hena MID 1107CM include the microSDHC card slot, mini port for HDMI, 802.11n WiFi, port for USB 2.0, front facing VGA camera and mic. It can also support playback of 1080p high definition videos.
The only questionable feature of the tablet is its battery life that can only last a little more than just 3.5 hours when viewing videos that are of 1080p quality. Moreover, it only allows a maximum battery life of 4.5 hours when browsing the web or 13 hours when listening to music with the screen off. The battery life that the Hena MID 1107CM offers is less than half of what other low-cost tablets like the Nook or Kindle Fire offers.
However, there is a big possibility that the tablet will be offered for a price that is lower than $200 when it becomes available in the United States. In addition, even if the MID 1107CM has a bigger screen, its processor is slower and its brand less known compared to the Nook or Kindle Fire. More details about Hena, the Taiwanese manufacturer of the above mentioned tablet can be found in the Hena Digital Website. However, theHena MID 1107CM tablet is not yet discussed in the site.
