Meizu, a Chinese company, is soon going to release an Apple iPad competitor. The device will be named Mbook and will feature a 8.4 inch screen. The touchscreen is a capacitive one and has resolution of 1024*768. The battery life of the Mbook is rated at around 12 hours. The Mbook will feature a 1.5Ghz processor and will be capable of playing 1080p videos via a HDMI cable.
Meizu’s Mbook will also feature 3G, GPS and Wi-Fi. The Mbook will apparently be running Google’s Android OS. The Mbook does look like a worthy competitor to the iPad. If the device is priced right, it could very well eat into iPad’s market share. Also, it is not yet known whether the applications currently present in the Android market will work on the Mbook or not.
The higher screen resolution of the Mbook compared to other Android devices present in the market, might pose a problem. The Mbook does have impressive hardware under the hood and a phenomenal battery life. As of now, no details are available about the release date and pricing of the device.
