The Talepad 7C - a 1GHz Telechips TCC8803 Cortex-A8 powered tablet that runs Android 2.2 (FroYo) and has a 7-inch screen with a resolution of 800 x 480 - is a tablet that we offer at our web store. Check out our hands on video of this stable and easy to use tablet that also comes with HDMI out, 4GB of internal memory, 512MB of RAM, a front facing camera and supports 1080p video playback (720p works very well). You can also read a brief review on the Telepad 7C here, and can check out the tablet's product page here.

The Big Players: Chips In The Shenzhen Tablet Market

March 28, 2011 by HS in Featured, Hardware News, Other with No Comments.

There are a lot of chips in the Shenzhen tablet market currently. We've got classic ARM9/ARM11-based ones, ARM Cortex-A8 and Cortex-A9 ones as well. Sometimes it can get a little confusing, especially if you're on the lookout for chips that do something specifically well - you may be willing to accept worse performance in one area for better performance in another. Well, inspired a very useful post by MICDigi, we've decided to compile a brief list of some of the more commonly found chips in Shenzhen tablets, and what their strengths / weaknesses are and some examples of tablets that use them. Without further ado... Rockchip chips are some of the most common you'll find in low-cost Shenzhen tablets - that is, the classic ARM9-based Rockchip chips (RK2808 and RK2818). The former is es

P702: A 1GHz Telechips TCC8902 Tablet

February 16, 2011 by HS in Tablet with 1 Comment.

The above tablet, that we only know currently as the P702, is another ARM11-based Telechips TCC8902 tablet - that means it'll do Android 2.1 (ed: actually, it's Android 2.2 - seems the beta firmwares for TCC8902 platforms are becoming more stable - at least, stable enough to attempt to sell.), 1080p HD video, but is not particularly powerful in any remaining respects. However, this time the TCC8902 makes its appearance with a twist - it's clocked at 1GHz (we should say overclocked at 1GHz) instead of running at its default clockspeed of 720MHz. If indeed these tablets ever make it to market in any form resembling stable, then it will open up possibilities for the vast array of existing TCC8902 tablets with programs like SetCPU - it just depends upon how resilient the processors are to th

Telechips TCC8803 A8-Based Chip Goes Into GPad 702

January 19, 2011 by HS in Tablet with 1 Comment.

We haven't heard much about the Telechips TCC8803 solution before - it's based on ARM Cortex A8, it comes at frequencies of 1GHz to 1.2Ghz, and supports Android 2.2 (with upgrade possibility to 2.3) with support for up to 512MB RAM. We've heard much of the TCC8902 chip, one that powered the GPad 701, an Android 2.1 tab with 1080p video playback capability. The Gpad 702 is set to have the TCC8803 beneath its bonnet,  and will run Android 2.2 and also match the 1080p HD video decoding capability of its predecessor - quite the upgrade. It is expected that pricing for the GPad 702 will go up. You can watch a video of the TCC8803 in action here, though it's not in a splayed-tablet form. via imp3

Gpad 802 & 803 Tablets

December 15, 2010 by Alex in Tablet with No Comments.

The GPad 701 has come up before in our previous blogs, however, in this particular blog, we talk about the Gpad 802 and 803. The Gpad 802 and 803 are 8-inch tablets, although the 803 is still apparently at its prototype stage. The 802 (pictured above) has a resolution of 800 x 600 pixels and uses the Telechips TCC8902 chip that's based on the ARM11 architecture. It has 256MB of internal storage and supports 1080p HD video playback as well as 1080p HDMI output. Its OS is Android 2.1. As for the Gpad 803 - it has the same resolution as the 802, and both use a 4800mAh battery, but other specs for the 803 are yet to be announced. We do have an image of the 803 however, which can be found after the break. The image shows that its shell is quite different to the 802's in colour, design and b

Catching Up: Itoos MID I5

December 14, 2010 by Alex in Tablet with No Comments.

The Itoos I5 MID, which we missed last week,  is another Telelchips powered MID to come rolling into what is fast becoming a market as saturated as MP4 players before it. It's powered by the Telechips TCC8902 chip, meaning that one of it's boons is 1080p video playback, but we are somewhat doubtful of how well Android 2.1 operates on it - certainly not to the level of efficiency that we've seen from Cortex A8 devices or Rockchip devices. Lending further doubt is the fact that the I5 is in a standard APAD shell - a possibly not so stable shell that has build quality concerns. Rounding out the specs is a resistive touchscreen, WiFi connectivity and support for 3G dongles, as well as an accelerometer. Itoos also recent announced their  MID I3 - a sleek, slender and almost phone-like MID

7-Inch MID-7AD – A Drop In The Ocean Of 7-Inch Tablets

December 13, 2010 by Alex in Tablet, Video with 1 Comment.

The 7-inch MID-7AD is like most other 7-inch tablets that seem to be all the rave currently. This particular tablet is powered by the Telechips TCC8902 processing chip - which means it supports 1080p HD video playback and HDMI video output, which again, seem to be what the masses are wanting. The processing chip is clocked at 720MHz and the device has 256MB of RAM, as well as WIFI. It has 2GB of flash memory and supports up to 32GB of external memory. It's 7-inch touchscreen has a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels and has all the common ports and jacks as most tablets do - headphone, miniUSB, etc. As for video files, it supports RMVB, AVI, WMV, MKV, MP4 and more. The device also supports word files such as excel, word etc. As for it's OS - it runs Android 2.1. The stylus used in the video

Video: D2K Reviews the Telepad 10.1

November 25, 2010 by HS in Tablet, Video with No Comments.

Forum member dragon2knight continues his assault on the video review scene with another quality, brutally honest review of the Telepad 10.1 tablet, a 10.1-inch tablet that runs Android 2.1 and is powered by the ARM11 Telechips TCC8902 processor. It starts off looking a bit rough but eventually we get to where the Telepad does excel and some nifty apps that work well on the Telepad, as well as those that don't. Thanks D2K for the impartial review. via forums

An Uncommon 6-Inch TCC8902 MID

November 25, 2010 by Alex in Tablet with No Comments.

We've seen many different sized tablets - from 5-inches all the way up to even 14-inch ones. Those two specific sizes are also uncommon however, it's more the 7-inch and 10.1-inch that are the most available, and by a landslide. We've also blogged a few times that tablets are currently on the bigger-is-better trend at the moment, so why come out with an unusual 6-incher? Let's start off with it's specs: It uses a Telechip TCC8902 processing chip (the same as our Telepad) based off an ARM11 core and is clocked at 720MHz. It's 6-inch touchscreen has a resolution of 800 x 480 and a ratio of 16:9. It's got 256MB of RAM and 2GB of internal memory, as well as a TF card slot. The MID also supports 1080p video playback and has an HDMI output. It would seem that spec wise, this MID is similar t

A8 Versus A8 Versus ARM11

A8 versus A8 versus ARM11 - we haven't had a good showdown in a while. Today I was fortunate enough to get a Freescale iMX515 Cortex A8 based tablet to play with, and decided to pit it against its half brother, the Texas Instruments (TI) OMAP3530 Cortex A8 based counterpart, the MIDnite, as well as our latest tablet offering on the MP4 Nation store, the Telepad, powered by the ARM11 TCC8902 processor. Invigorating stuff. The Freescale and TI A8 processors were both clocked at 800MHz while Telepad's Telechips ARM11 CPU comes in clocked at a lower 720MHz - I know, it's not quite a fair test, especially when considering the latter runs Android 2.1, while the former two A8 brethren run Android 2.2. We (attempted) to use 3 benchmarks: Quadrant Standard Edition, Linpack for Android and Qualcom
