The Kinpad Android Tablet Uses AMD Graphics

Overseas, the 7-inch Kinpad I600 tablet is making its debut, borrowing from Dell's Streak design by providing a similar smartphone-tablet hybrid setup but with a cheaper pricetag. However, one of the more interesting aspects about this hybrid device is that it uses AMD's Z430, the same GPU that is used in the HTC Desire smartphone.

Under the hood, the tablet sports an 800 MHz ARM Coretex-A8 CPU (via Freescale's i.MX51), 512 MB of DDR2 RAM, 8 GB of built-in storage, a microSD card slot supporting up to 32 GB of storage, a 7-inch capacitive multi-touch screen with a native resolution of 1024 x 600, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, 802.11 b/g support and more.

Have a look at some of the pros and cons of the device after the break (Update: video review)

Brings decent quality phone and SMS messaging ability to the tablet world
3G data connectivity beyond just typical Wi Fi connectivity
Capacitive touch screen is quite responsive and clear
1080p video playback of H.264 video format
Decent front facing webcam and GPS included
Android 2.2 OS and Android App market access out of the box
Good sized 4200mAH battery

Kinda big for most people to stick up to their ear for a phone
For countries without removable SIM cards a new contract/SIM would be required
Only 1 USB connection through the docking extension
No HDMI out even though the device plays 1080p video files.
