World’s thinnest tablet is a moving target. When Dell unveiled the Venue 8 7000 Series last month, it was pretty easy to claim that at just 6mm thick it was the thinnest tablet around… but then Apple unveiled the almost-as-thin 6.1mm iPad Air 2.

Now Chinese device maker Hisense wants in on the action. The company has just unveiled its own 6.1mm tablet.

The Hisense VIDAA PAD F5281 is an Android tablet with stereo speakers, a microUSB port, microSD card slot, front and rear cameras, and a headset jack.It’ll be available in a variety of colors including grey, brown, gold, and red.

I gathered all of those detailed from photos of the tablet at Chinese sites IT Home and Zol. Hisense hasn’t actually provided detailed specs for the tablet yet, so we don’t know anything about the display technology, processor, or other hardware.

  1. Brad, I would bet that this is the Sero 8 Pro, and that the thickness was garbled in translation or transmission.

  2. It’s a rk3288 tablet. They already had a 6.35mm tablet so this is probably an updated version.

  3. One thing known from the pics is that it’s a 4:3 aspect, like iPad and Nexus 9. I’m glad that all the major players are moving to “squarer” aspects (SP3 is 3:2). Wide-screen aspect is really only best for viewing videos, and worse for everything else. The squarer aspect also allows better use in portrait. Hopefully, the OEMs will follow the leaders, and we’ll see less of the 16:10 and 16:9 devices.

    Both iOS and Android have yet to define a role for tablets, more than just blown-up phones. Multi-windowing is still absent, although larger screens demand it; discrete keyboard & pointers are still an afterthought; and no initiative for productivity app development. Perhaps Microsoft, being the laggard, will step up in the “productivity handheld” category. It’s trying, but its ongoing blunders thus far with Windows cast it in the same clueless category as the others.

    Something will happen at some point, and somebody will luck into the next “iPhone” breakthrough. It hasn’t happened yet.

    1. Wider aspect tablets are better for having 2 windows open side by side, if your OS supports it, like on a windows tablet.

      1. Windows app snapping is one of their best features. Love how windows 10 supports snapping into the corners

    2. Have you heard about Windows 10 ? What blunders are you talking about ? If its modern apps you don’t like that’s your personal problem so what is it?
