Chinese device maker Pipo introduced a handful of new tablets earlier this month, and now at least one model is available for purchase. One of the most intriguing is the Pipo T9. It’s an 8.9 inch tablet with a full HD display, an 8-core processor, and a selling price of about $250 when you order from a number of stores at online marketplace AliExpress.
The Pipo T9 features an 8.9 inch, 1920 x 1200 pixel IPS display, a 2 GHz MediaTek MT6592 ARM Cortex-A7 octa-core processor with Mali-450 graphics, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage.
The tablet features WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, and WCDMA/GSM capabilities, sports a 13MP rear camera with an LED flash and auto-focus, and a fixed-focus 2MP front camera.
Other features include a 7300mAh battery, HDMI and microSD card ports, and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean software.
All told, while the Pipo T9 may not be the fastest or cheapest tablet money can buy (and support for Chinese tablets like this can be a bit hit or miss), the spec sheet is hard to beat for the price.
