USB Brando, an online store that offers all types of USB products, is selling a new Android tablet called GADMEI T863-3D. The new slate is priced at an affordable $199, and it carries an 8-inch 3D multi-touch display with a 1280 x 768 pixel resolution. The GADMEI T863-3D packs some decent features like 8GB of internal storage and a 1.0GHz ARM Cortex A9 processor with 250MHz Mali 400 graphics. Now the biggest selling point is its self-developed 3D image decoding chip, which according to the company allows the LCD screen to “achieve the 3D video effect without glasses.” The tablet’s built-in 3D recognition system automatically identifies the 3DV and 3DM video formats found in 3D movies.
Other noteworthy specs include:
- microSD card slot for storage expansion of up to 32GB
- USB flash drive
- Gravity acceleration sensor
- Built-in speaker
- 5,000mAh battery
- 0.3MP front-facing camera
- 1080p high-definition video output
- 802.11b/g/n WiFi
- HDMI output
- Android 2.3 Gingerbread
This small inexpensive 3D tab is a little on the hefty side, measuring 219mm x 143mm x 13mm and weighing 530 grams, which is bigger than the Kindle Fire at 7.5″ x 4.7″ x 0.45″ (190 mm x 120 mm x 11.4 mm) weighing 413 grams.
In the embedded video below, both 2D and 3D viewpoints are shown while playing the movie Avatar. The crazy thing is you can actually see the difference — it’s almost night and day. Hey, for $199 it might not be such a bad buy, especially if it’s used for media purposes only. Would you pick this 3D tablet up?
