CES Android Goodies #1: GiiNii Movit Mini

Here come the iPod Touch comparisons.  Engadget got their hands on the Movit Mini WiFi tablet from GiiNii, which just happens to run Android.  The device features a 4.3″ screen, running at 480 x 272 resolution, Bluetooth, a front side camera, and a soft keyboard.  Also on board, a built in speaker, 256MB, and a MicroSD cart slot.  As far as software goes, it comes with Skype support ready to go.

Scheduled for release sometime in the middle of the year, the unit was turning heads out at CES today.  Engadget even went as far as to say it “might be one of the best things we’ve seen at CES so far.”  Sweet!

How much will this go for?  The best we’ve seen around the internet is “less than what Apple’s iPod Touch sells for.”  Natch.  Also on the burner is the Movit Maxx, which is supposed to have a 7″ screen.  This would make a great internet device with free, carrier independent calling!  We have to get our hands on this thing ASAP.

    No way is this anywhere close to IPhone. The best next thing is the PRE. Now that’s a baby I would adopt anyday just if TMobile would get it. I believe this new OS may be Androids biggest threat and the way the G1 owners are being treated with the cupcake situation, good riddance!

    I’m kinda disappointed by the GiiNii Maxx (7″ version). They took the “slate” form factor too literally – it’s just a big freakin’ rectangle (looks like almost sharp 90″ corners even). I was hoping the 7″ version would have a keyboard… like a convertible tablet netbook built around android. I would have bought that.

    @robert barrett — the comparison to the iPod Touch and iPhone is that, like the iPod Touch is a phone-less iPhone, this is a phone-less Android tablet. It’s an appropriate comparison, no matter what you feel about the relative merits of the OSes might be.

    Looks very slick to me. Although, it seems like games would be limited to touch screen controls.
