Slate Tablets Just Keep Getting Cheaper

Posted by Hooch Tan in "Digital Home News" @ 04:30 PM

"If priced at just $100, the Moby will presumably feature conventional LCD technology, not an E Ink display. However, Marvell says downloadable textbooks for the Moby could sell for a fraction of bound versions, adding that the device should also help children from being injured by toting overweight backpacks. "

A teardown of the venerable iPad estimates the hardware costs at around $275. By comparison, Marvell seems intent on being able to sell a tablet for $100. The question will be just how well the Moby will perform in comparison to other tablets. It will offer Android and Windows CE support and claims support for a wealth of other components we expect in this increasingly mobile world. While I think the iPad will offer a lot, this kind of slate tablet interests me much more as the price definitely makes it an impulse buy, and makes computing even more accessible.
