VIA V7 the latest $65 Android dual-core tablet

viav7Low-cost tablets running MediaTek, Rockchip or Actions Semi SoC CPUs seem to be everywhere, but there’s another chip maker that’s also out in the budget tablet market – VIA, and its about to release a new entry-level tablet called the VIA V7.

This 7-inch tablet comes with VIA’s own WM8880, a dual-core Cortex A9 design running at 1.5GHz.┬áThe tablet itself features a basic 800×480-pixel resolution panel pretty much in keeping with its low $65 price tag. It’s also pretty low on storage with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of on-board flash. While there’s no way to boost the RAM, you can add in MicroSD, up to a total of 16GB.

Somewhat surprisingly, the VIA V7 comes with two VGA cameras – one on the front, the other on the back. However, it does come with more useful features including 802.11b/g Wi-Fi and HDMI output through a miniHDMI port.

The battery is only a comparatively small 2000mAh Lithium-ion type and even VIA doesn’t rate it for more than three hours.

The V7 is currently selling on Geekbuying.com for $65. Oh, and you’d better like it in pink.

If you’re thinking of buying at this budget point, try looking for AllFine’s Fine7 Genius, which claims to offer a quad-core Actions Semi ATM7029 SoC CPU plus a higher-resolution 1024×600-pixel panel and 3000mAh Lithium-ion battery for the same rock-bottom $65 (Y399) price tag.
