Dion Built a 4.8 inch Clamshell Android MID Prototype

October 29, 2010 - Written By Chris Yackulic

Make no mistake, this China-made device is not a mini netbook, (well it is if you are seeing the keyboard) but it has Samsung-sourced 4.8 inch WVGA capacitive LCD touchscreen with LED backlighting, and support for multi-touch which essentially makes this a small tablet.  This machine is powered by a Marvell PXA935 processor and NPX5209 chipset, the PXA935 very possibly ranging in speed from 624MHz to 1GHz or more.

Connectivity is thus: 2G GSM for voice, 3G WCDMA for data/voice, WiFi b/g/n, GPS, TV reception, FM radio, Bluetooth, and support for microSD cards up to 32GB for extra storage. Is this a new trend of devices? Just as manufacturers adding a QWERTY keyboard to their handset and slapping the word Pro or Z on it, will we see iPad Pro, Galaxy Tab Pro or Dell Pro?
