Saycool’s M5A 5 inch Atom-powered Windows 7 tablet emerges on the FCC
Shenzhen-based Saycool passed a tablet computer called the M5A, pictured above, through the FCC today. The device actually sports a decent feature set that includes a 5” touch screen with an 800 x 480 resolution, Intel Atom Z515 processor, Intel GMA500 graphics, between 8 to 32GB of storage, external storage via SD, 0.3MP webcam, Bluetooth and 802.11b/g WiFi.
The M5A will run Windows 7, as pictured below. In addition to its touch screen, the device can be controlled by what appears to be an optical mouse with left and right mouse buttons placed on the left hand side of the device.
The M5A weighs in at 12.3 ounces with battery, and measures 6.3” x 3.7” x 0.9”. That makes the device a bit too large to comfortably pocket, but definitely portable enough to fit in a small bag or purse.
We’re not sure how usable Windows 7 will be on a 5” touch screen, and the device does appear to be a bit bulky, especially when compared to other tablets. We’re also not sure if, or when the M5A will make it to the United States – currently Saycool’s products are only available in the US on a limited basis through importers.
We’ll keep you updated as we learn more.
