This tablet comes with an ARM9 rockchip based processor, full video playback support, touch screen support, 800×480 screen, 4.8 inch size and will be based on the Android OS.

Hott has announced they will be selling this tablet to distributors for just $92 without any flash memory. Distributors will have the option to customize it by adding flash memory and possibly customizing other aspects of the tablet. The Chinese manufacturer Hott is expecting the MD500 to be huge hit and are already calling it an iPad killer.

You can see the MD500 playing a 720P video clip below without any trouble, a task that will be important for any device that plans to compete with the Apple iPad.

Yes.. That cant be an ipad killer.. And the size? Just 4.8 inch.. It is only large enough to be called a smartphone.. Look at Galaxy Note.. At the size of 5 inch something, and people consider that as a phone.. Not a tablet..

Agree, not an iPad killer and not a tablet. At this size it is a personal media player (PMP) and that is already a crowded arena. The title is misleading. On top of that it just says video is necessary to compete with iPad, not that they are taking iPad on. Over all there are just many things wrong with the idea that this somehow is going to be a serious tablet device that is going to have any effect on the tablet market, Android or Apple. Good luck to them in the PMP arena since that is pretty much a dead end no matter what they are bringing to the table.
