Chinese device maker Pipo has introduced a new tablet with a 9.4 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display and a Rockchip RK3188 ARM Cortex-A9 quad-core processor.
The tablet appears to be an upgraded version of the Pipo M8, which has a similar screen, but less memory and a slower processor.
Pipo’s new tablet features 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean software.
It has a 5MP rear camera, a 2MP front-facing camera, 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth, HDMI output, and a microSD card slot.
The Rockchip RK3188 processor is one of the fastest ARM Cortex-A9 chips on the market at the moment. But with Qualcomm, NVIDA, and Samsung starting to roll out chips based on ARM Cortex-A15 and related designs, that’s not saying as much as it once was.
Still, at just $30 more than the price of a Nexus 7, the Pipo M8Pro offers a larger screen, more memory, a faster processor, a microSD card slot, and a faster CPU.
