  1. I confirmed that the PineTab has a screen resolution of 1280×800 pixels and a 16:10 aspect ratio. I don’t know why Pine64 focuses on it having a 720p display.

    I’ve been following this since it was first announced, but keep hesitating because the Allwinner chip is so anemic. Hopefully, this tablet will be popular enough that Pine64 will offer a PineTab Pro next year.
