With the release of Apple’s iPad, many companies are releasing tablet mobile Internet devices. A Chinese company named EKEN at http://www.ekengroup.com/en/home/index.asp has released two models of these devices. EKEN offers the M001 and M003 tablet devices.
The EKEN M001 features the Google Android 1.6 operating system. It comes with a seven-inch LCD screen with 800x480 resolution; a Via MW8505 533Mhz processor; 128MB RAM; 2GB or 4GB flash drive; 802.11B/G WiFi; an SD slot; a 30-pin Dock connector port (same as an iPod/iPad connection), built-in mic and audio out.
The M001 is available in white, silver or black colors. The battery life is two and a half hours and the tablet weighs under two pounds.
The pre-installed software on the EKEN M001 includes UCWEB Browser, MailBox, Medio, Youtube, MSN, Skype, WINRAR and some games. It is E-book and MS Office compatible.

The EKEN M003 has the same features as the EKEN M001 except it features an eight-inch LCD screen with 800x600 resolution and a USB port. It is available in either white or silver colors. This model’s battery life is three hours and it resembles Apple’s iPad.

Note: If you search online for the M003 model, it says the processor is 800Mhz and for the M001 model it says 600Mhz. However, on the company’s website it states a 533Mhz processor for both. Do a search for either model on eBay to see detailed photos of both models.
