New CherryPad to Rise in Price with Addition of 1GHz CPU, 7-inch Capacitive Touchscreen

Just about the only thing the original CherryPad had going for it was its price tag set below $200. For that price you got just about what you paid for, so complaining about it was a futile exercise. Or was it? Specs are starting to leak on the followup to the CherryPad, and while it takes a bump up in price the hardware might just be promising enough to justify it.

We are talking a 1GHz Cortex A8 CPU, 512MB of RAM, and Android 2.2 in addition to a 7-inchcapacitive touchscreen. Yes, the awful resistive touchscreen of the original is being put to rest. HDMI output and GSM radio support round out the new CherryPad.
And for all that seems to be improving, the price isn’t actually jumping up that much. The price is looking to double into the $300-$400 range, which remains affordable while still being priced just a bit higher than we’d actually want to spend on a device that succeeds the original CherryPad.
