I thought they had given up on making a tablet. Who knows... maybe it's a dock/screen/keyboard combo for the M9/MX.
It should be a keyboard/dock/case thingy for the upcoming MX phone. No way would Meizu muck up their business plan with a tablet.
beyond that i think its just seen as far too expensive to be considerd against the sea of phones available from other named companies
Meizu does face a bit of a quandary, at least if they still entertain the idea of officially entering any other market besides China. With the MX, the company is taking another huge step: Hardware-wise, it will be right up there; price-wise it's going to be right up there as well. The dual-core, 16GB MX at between $400-500 in China should go over pretty well (especially if they offer a trade-in policy), but the 32GB quad-core version at over $600 is really pushing the envelope. No doubt the hardware will all be top-shelf, but there's no escaping that Meizu is still working to connect all the dots with their custom Android OS. While it's fair to offer the excuse that this is still a company in transition, it's also fair to say that transition has meant Meizu buyers have essentially been beta testers since the process began.
While people were still waiting on the M9, I was saying the real measure of where Meizu stands would be the MX. With this short development cycle (short for Meizu, at least), the company needs to prove they can not only deliver bleeding-edge tech, but back that up with more "final" builds of their OS as well. Although operating on a higher plane altogether, it's nevertheless not a stretch to say they're struggling with the same ol' Achilles' Heel as other Chinese manufacturers: firmware just doesn't keep pace with hardware. Meizu is lucky that their fans are die-hard in every sense of the term.
