CES Count the Tablets 34-40: Homeland 7”, 8.9”, 10”

LAS VEGAS - Continuing our “Count the Tablets” coverage of CES, we have seven tablets from a Shenzhen, China company called Homeland that range in size from 7” to 10”, bringing our count to 40 tablets. Unlike many of the other companies we’ve covered in this series, Homeland had detailed specs for each of their tablets, but unfortunately they resembled their competition in that none of the tablets were turned on, and all of them were wrapped in plastic.

Homeland’s devices were feature rich, and the company was quite specific about the different audio and video formats that these devices could handle. They are all shy on storage — most of them had 2GB of internal storage — but they all have TF card slots for additional storage.

In addition, all of the devices run on Android OS, with a mix of devices on Android 2.1 and Android 2.2. All but the MID-IO-N tablet that run Android 2.2 were running an embedded version of the OS, meaning that it can’t be updated.
