"Marvell announced its intent to deliver a $100, Android-ready tablet computer built around a 1GHz Armada 600 series processor. Aimed at students, the "Moby" will offer WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, an FM receiver, and Adobe Flash compatibility, the company says.

"Marvell's "bold new education initiative" was unveiled at this week's Future of Publishing conference in New York, but the company did not say whether it will manufacture the Moby itself or -- as we think more likely -- merely try to spur on third-party manufacturers by creating a reference design. In any case, the tablet, whose screen size was not mentioned, appears to offer functionality associated with devices including Apple's forthcoming iPad, but at a significantly lower price."
