If there’s one thing you’ve got to love about all these obscure tech companies in China is that they don’t play according to the rules. The results are devices that are rather innovative in design, although we’re not sure how marketable they are, and one such device is a tablet by a Shenzhen based company, RenBen.
It’s essentially a tablet with phone calling capabilities, putting it up there with other “hybrids” that seem to combine devices like smartphones with a tablet-sized body. The tablet will feature a 7” touchscreen with a 800×480 display resolution. It is powered by an MTK 6573 processor clocked at 650MHz along with dual-cameras, 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth with Android’s Gingerbread on board.
It will also feature dual-SIM capabilities, so essentially you could load it up with one SIM card with a calling plan, and the other SIM card purely for data usage. A rather interesting idea, no? Unfortunately pricing is unknown and we’re guessing that it’s unlikely that this tablet by RenBen will make its way outside of China.
