Newsmy’s 8-inch NewPad P9 is one of the two world’s first tablets running Android 4.0 ICS.
Many posts have been published on the internet over the last few days, about the world’s first Ice Cream Sandwich tablet – the Rockchip Android 4.0 PAD, which is powered by a Rockchip RK2918 processor (Fuzhou Rockchip Electronics Co.,Ltd.).
So, is it possible a tablet, which just a few weeks ago was capable of running only Android 2.3 Gingerbread, to run ICS? The answer is – Yes.
Yesterday, Engadget posted some photos (at Engadget China) of two Fuzhou Rockchip prototype tablets, running Android 4.0 ICS.
On one of those photos (the above one), our eyes spotted the name of the tablet – NewPad P9. Although a prototype, it is clearly that this is the 8-incher – the NewPad P9 tablet (below) with its front facing camera situated on a specific and unique place.
A few hours ago, Engadget was tipped anonymously (again), about another future tablet from Lenovo.
The tablet has a 5-inch display, and is likely to run Google’s Android OS. From the photos (on Engadget’s site) can be spotted an HDMI port, micro USB port and a front-facing camera.
There are no hardware specifications available yet, but as we can see the device looks a bit like a smartphone, and comes in Black and Clementine Orange – Lenovo’s favorite color.
