Marvel-Digital announced a Android 2.3-based TBT-10C Mercury Pad Tablet for $259, featuring a 1GHz Samsung Hummingbird Cortex-A8 processor and a seven-inch, capacitive multitouch display. Meanwhile, a detailed comparative review between the iPad 2 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has given the edge to the Android tablet for its greater flexibility. Research studies that project Android tablets will eventually match or eclipse the almighty Apple iPad tend to agree that it will do so primarily on the low end, where Apple has so far dared to tread. Tablets that are too underpowered or shoddily built run the risk of turning off consumers to the platform altogether. Marvel-Digital not to be confused with Marvel’s digital comics service or Marvell Semiconductor, which offers its own Android-based Moby tablet reference design has launched a tablet that aims to boost the profile of cut-rate tablets. The $259 TBT-10C Mercury Pad Tablet runs Android 2.3 on a Cortex-A8 based Samsung S5PV210 Hummingbird processor clocked to 1GHz. While high-end tablets have moved on to dual-core Cortex-A9 system on chips (SoCs), many under-$300 models instead use less powerful ARM11 or even ARM9 CPUs. The device can even drive 1080p video output via its HDMI port. The Mercury Pad Is equipped with 512MB DDR2 RAM, and starts at 4GB of internal memory, with an option to move to 8GB or 16GB and a 32GB-ready microSD slot is also said to be available.


The tablet is said to provide a seven-inch, 800 x 480 capacitive multitouch display with 16:9 aspect ratio. This resolution can’t match the 1024 x 600 resolution of high-end seven-inch tablets, but at least it’s capacitive, as opposed to the non-multitouch resistive touchscreens that are more typical of under $300 tablets. The specs appear to indicate that the $259 model ships with a 0.3-megapixel camera that can be upgraded to a two-megapixel model and this may instead refer to front- and back-facing cameras. Standard features include both USB host and device ports, and 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi, . No GPS capability is listed, but a USB 3G module from Huawei or ZTE is also said to be available as an option. In addition, the tablet is said to supply a mic, speakers, 3.5mm audio jack, and a G-sensor. The Mercury Pad is touted for its “ultra lightweight design, smooth edges, and thin profile,” but no dimensions are supplied, and the tablet weighs a hefty 510 grams (18 ounces) compared to the 13.4-ounce (380 grams) seven-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab. The tablet’s Android 2.3 stack provides pre-installed Google apps including Gmail, Google Maps and Google Talk. Also included are Adobe Flash 10.1, an Office-compatible productivity app, an ebook reader, English/Chinese input tools, as well as Skype, MSN and QQ messaging apps. So-called 3D games are available, although it’s unclear whether the Angry Birds Rio app that is ably demonstrated in the YouTube video below is one of them.
