AOC to show a $200 Android 2.1 tablet with 8
AOC is mostly known as one of the largest LCD and LED screen makers in the world, mainly due to value for money propositions, and we've used their products with rarely a complaint. That status alone made it feel compelled to jump onto the tablet bandwagon with a budget-friendly proposition.

The AOC Breeze will sport an LCD screen of the unorthodox 8" size and run Android 2.1. Except for the disappointing choice of OS version, the tablet is otherwise pretty decent for its $200 price, with 4GB of internal memory and microSD slot, as well as an USB port. The navigation buttons are old school physical, but some might even prefer them before capacitive, while the tablet itself weighs just 1.1 pounds.

The biggest mistery is the chipset, which AOC lists as made from the Chinese chipmaker Rockchip. We know Rockchip outed an Android-tailored CPU, capable of HD video, so we guess that's what the AOC Breeze tablet is rocking, and the promised battery life is six hours of video playback. Well, anything that keeps the costs down.

You know what? Android simply doesn't attract me. Their software isn't nice. Think of something outside the box, like Blackberry Playbook. It looks attractive. Even WP7 has a good software, it's unique!

WP7 Software looks cheap. It doesn't look like they could make it more basic and ugly.
