Marvell Unveils $99 Moby Tablet Design


This week, Marvell unveiled a $99 tablet e-reader reference design that the company promises will do for the e-reader market what ARM-based notebooks have done to compete with netbooks.

The "Moby" contains a Marvell Armada 600-series microprocessor running at up to a gigahertz. the system-on-a-chip is powerful enough to be able to perform 1080p high-definition video encoding and decoding, some 3D graphics, and either the Google Android or Microsoft Windows Mobile operating system. It reportedly uses a 10-inch display, according to Technologizer. According to Marvell, the Moby's Armada 600 processor can decode Adobe Flash-encoded video.

Marvell is pitching the Moby at students and other consumers who want the flexibility of a tablet, but don't want to pay for something like a JooJoo or an iPad. Marvell will soon announce a pilot program in partnership with the District of Columbia Public School system (DCPS) where the Company will donate a Moby tablet to every child in an at-risk school as part of a multi-year program in new media and learning, the company said. (Source: Gear Log)
