Pipo M7Pro tablet with RK3188 CPU, 8.9 inch full HD display on the way for about $240

Chinese tablet maker Pipo has introduced a new model with a speedy processor, a high resolution display, and a relatively low price. The PiPo M7Pro is an 8.9 inch tablet with a 1920 x 1200 pixel display, a Rockchip RK3188 quad-core processor, and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean software.

It’s already available in China, and you should be able to get one in the US this July for around $240.

Pipo actually introduced the tablet in May, but I was reminded to check for pricing and availability after Chinese blog Padhz got their hands on the device recently and posted some hands-on impressions.

The tablet has 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a 5MP rear camera with auto-focus and flash, and a 2MP front-facing camera. It features GPS, HDMI, and a microSD card slot and supports 802.11b/g/n WiFi. Unfortunately there’s no Bluetooth support.

According to Padhz, the Pipo M7pro  is pretty thin, light, and easy to grip thanks to a bumpy texture in the plastic near the edges. It’s also not a bad-looking device — unless you have an aversion to ports. There are plenty of them around the sides of this tablet.

Geekbuying is taking pre-orders for the Pipo M7Pro for $240 and expects to have it in stock by July 20th.

You can also order one from AliExpress, where sellers are offering the tablet for between $215 and $310.

      It might because of when the Bluetooth is on, the wifi signal will be quite low.
