Marvell Moby Tablet

The iPad is almost here and everyone is talking about it. Now Marvell has announced, that they are developing a tablet computer as well. The claim this will change the way students learn. This also has more options than the iPad, and does more. The Marvell has named the tablet Moby. Here is the best part. Marvell has made a statement that this high-performance device is going to sell for $99 a pop. Now this will be great for schools like they say. Normally textbooks cost anywhere from $60 - $200 so this would be a great cost savings. The Moby is a 10” tablet that has quite a bit for the $99 price, which will include 1080p HD video playback, full Flash support, Wi-Fi/Bluetooth/FM/GPS connectivity and even 3D-capability. This will all be powered by the Marvell ARMADA 600 series processors. This should give great battery life as well. This also could be a great device for some businesses as well, that need to be on the road and need information without having to bring a laptop along. We will have to wait if this does indeed every get released and becomes a real product for the consumers. So for now, I will have to get my iPad. :)
