CES Count the Tablets 10-20: Feihong, VG Media, Ontop

LAS VEGAS - Continuing our “Count the Tablets” coverage of CES, we bring you eleven different Android tablets from three companies, Feihong, VG Media, and Ontop. They range in size from 5.5” to 10.1”, though none of them were actually turned on.

Better yet, the Ontop folks stopped us from photographing the real tablet devices and gave us two cardboard mockups we could shoot instead, one for a 7” model and one for an 8” model. We found that such bizarre behavior for a company showing their products at CES, a massive trade show open only to industry people and the media, we’re going to start with it.

Ontop Cardboard(Note that the specs for both sizes are essentially identical)

Ontop 7” & 8”Android Tablets

  • 7” Display (press release said 7”, while the spec sheet on display at the company’s booth said 6”)
  • 800 x 600 resolution
  • Telechips TCC8900 ARM 11 SoC (720MHz) processor
  • WiFi 802.11b/g
  • 3.5G Modem (WCDMA, TD-SCDMA, EVDO)
  • Bluetooth
  • 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera
  • HDMI output
  • 512MB RAM, 2GB NAND Flash memory for storage
  • Micro-SD Card slot for additional storage
  • Android OS 2.1
  • Price: Not announced

VG Media had many and more tablets on display, though all of them were wrapped in plastic and turned off. The company’s booth had a variety of specs on display, as well, but as none of those specs were tied to a specific model, we’re presenting five of the (turned off) tablets below, with the accompanying general specs.

VG Media TabletsFive VG Media Tablets
  • 7” - 10.1” TFT LCD Displays
  • Resolutions unspecified, but the company said they support 720p output to TVs through HDMI
  • External 3G modem
  • GPS
  • RJ45 Ethernet
  • Android OS 2.1
  • Price: Not announced

VG Media also plastered “Support Word, Excel, PPT, PDF, MSN, Skype” on the marketing materials on display at the booth, but these are Android devices, and neither Word, nor Excel, nor Power Point run on Android. The company likely meant that there are Android apps that can open and work with those file formats — and since there are such apps for Android (and iOS), we’re happy to give the company the benefit of the doubt.

It may be hard to tell in the photo above, but you can see clearly in the photo below that the VG Media tablets were wrapped in plastic.

Lastly, we bring you four plastic-wrapped tablets from Feihong Industry Co., Ltd (two each of 7” and 5.5” models). We were unable to find out anything about the devices, as no one at the Feihong booth would supply us with specs or other information — remember, these are among the 80 tablets that some folks were all excited were being introduced at CES.
