7″ C-motech “Mangrove” tablet a 1GHz Snapdragon MID
Living the life as a mobile internet tablet is full of obscurity and not knowing exactly what your purpose in life is. I mean, smartphones are small and powerful, easily able to slip into a pocket. Laptops are small computers that also have copious amounts of power on board (mid-higher end anyway) and are also relatively portable. Tablets and MID on the other hand are sort of stuck in a never ending limbo as they’re way to big to be categorized as a smartphone and often too underpowered and small to be a laptop.
That lifelong ambiguity hasn’t stopped C-montech however as their latest device titled the “Mangrove” is a 7″ behemoth and packs in quite the hardware punch:
- 7″ Touchscreen display
- 1GHz Snapdragon processor
One shortcoming for some (myself included) is the use of Windows Mobile 6.5. Hardly the modern OS I would have chosen. But minor quibbles aside, the physical presence the tablet portrays is enough to leave me transfixed on it’s sleek lines. Would you be interested in such a device? Or is 7″ in that weird size category that as stated earlier is both too small and too big?

Ya, the fact that this is even funny is sad. When your typical smartphone case is getting contention from Mr. Sandwhich’s humble abode you know 3rd party manufacturers need to step it up.
We could try all day to express our feelings of anger, disgust, and outright hate by “talking it out” or using other means. But why do all of that nonsense when a simple “fuck” is all that is really needed? Think you have it bad for that smartphone of yours? The owner [...]
Now before you think this “pink” reference is made to some popular womens lingerie store, I’ll come ahead and crush your dreams — it’s not. Instead this is a bit more sinister. Much like the Droid is having issues with it’s camera, it seems as if the HD2 (popular device this morning isn’t [...]
The HTC HD2 is currently the top dog of the WinMo world. It has a massive 4.3″ screen which is gargantuan when compared to any other smartphone. Even considering the fact that it is hobbling along with WinMo 6.5 prettified with HTC’s Sense UI, the HTC HD2 is a hot phone. Not [...]
The Motorola Motus, leaked in all of it’s glory. We talked earlier about Motorola falling into a “Razr Rut” in regards to getting stuck on one design and beating it long past it’s expiration date. With that said, the first interesting feature of the Motus is that it’s not a “traditional slider” but [...]
Sweet, sweet action it is. No words can describe the awe I am experiencing. If rumors are correct, the Verizon bound HTC Passion/Dragon should resemble this at least a tad. Who wants four?!
Of course, the angle at which it’s facing and the overall sheen just looks slightly odd. Fake? God [...]
The beauty of the Android platform is the ability to multi-task. Multi-tasking is a feature that such clever yet “not quite there” ideas such as Push Notifications just can’t compete with. On the Moto Droid, some people have been experiencing rather quick battery discharge times. Some unfamiliar with the platform or device [...]
After spending a week with the Motorola Droid, I’ve come away impressed. It’s a great phone though not perfect. My thorough impressions are just after the jump…
Prototype BlackBerry with touchscreen, slide-out qwerty, and webkit browser moved to prototype stage. Release in 2010?
I remember the day that I read about the rumors of a touchscreen BlackBerry. I was sitting in Chicago O’Hare Airport waiting for a flight to Houston. At that time, scouring the specs on BGR’s site left my jaw dropping and my heart racing. That was the pinnacle of my CrackBerry days. [...]
If you’re in the Market for an Android device, you’ve got quite the selection this holiday season. But if you’re a bleeding edge nerd who wants the top of the line, you really only have a couple choices. Sprint’s HTC Hero or Samsung Moment and Verizon’s Droid Eris or DROID Droid are really [...]
