Five aigo Android tablets launched: Tegra & 3G namechecked

aigo have been showing off their aigoPad tablets in China again, with their CEO promising five different models - various boasting 4-, 5- and 7-inch screen sizes - launching from July 2010.  Interestingly, Shanzhaiben's photos from the launch (note that "aigo" translates as "patriot" since that's the Chinese meaning) only seem to show two of the units - what looks to be the smallest and largest versions - and neither bears a huge resemblance to the renders we've seen before.

Aigo P8860 reviewed: Hackable, admirable, but perhaps not buyable

Aigo's P8860 has been one of the more interesting mobile internet devices (MIDs) we've been keeping track of, not least because it actually managed to move out of prototype stage and into the hands of buyers.  The 800MHz Atom powered ultraportable has a 4.8-inch touchscreen and slide-out QWERTY keyboard, and runs a specially tweaked version of Linux intended to make mobile computing straightforward; Jenn at Pocketables has been putting the P8860 through its paces, and while there's plenty to recommend it, there are also a few big questions left over at the end.
