The first Android tablet with a transflective Pixel Qi display was meant to be the Adam from Notion Ink. But while we still have to wait for the Adam, a company from Taiwan combines Android and a Pixel Qi display to a tablet. Innoversal presented a tablet with a transflective display at Computex 2010, but that one was running Windows 7 and had an Intel Atom under the hood. Now the same company said they will also produce this device with an ARM based Freescale i.MX515 platform to run Chor. We have seen that setting on the Mastone Lifepad 3G aka Prowave VYT850.
This is a product illustration of the Innoversal Lattice tablet:
Unfortunately there are no more pix available on their website. If you like to see more pix, head over to engadget.com. They have a gallery of the Windows version.

Charbax from armdevices.net had his hands on the Windows version and provides a video to give us an impression of the device… running Windows 7 (argh!!):
As a Windows tablet is not my thing, the same device with Android could be a nice gadget. Let’s wait and see until we see the first version running Android. I hope they will spend some time to optimize Android on their hardware, because the specs look good in general….
The Windows version is planned to come in September 2010. And the Freescale version?
