When we caught up with Chinese MID manufacturer Routon at CES back in January, they were looking for distributors for their P760 MID. Now the company has another touchscreen MID on offer, the Routon P730, which keeps the 4.8-inch touchscreen of the P760 but drops the hardware keypad. Also on offer now is Android support.
Both MIDs are based on 677MHz Samsung S3C6410 processors with 256MB of RAM and either 4GB of 8GB of flash storage. The touchscreen is 800 x 480 resolution, and Routon throw in WiFi b/g, GPS, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR and an EVDO CDMA modem good for up to 3.1Mbps; GSM/EDGE support is optional, as are various flavors of TV tuner.
The company is planning on launching the P760 MID and P730 MID in May, and are looking for overseas distributors. Assuming they can roll out a working Android version – at CES the P760 was running a more generic Linux OS – there could be interest in the MIDs, especially if the price is kept low.
