Hyundai’s latest Android tablet looks pretty good on paper. It has a speedy Rockchip RK3188 ARM Cortex-A9 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and an iPad-like 9.7 inch, 2048 x 1536 pixel display.

That’s a lot of tablet… especially when you consider the $250 price tag.

But this might be a bit of a case where you get what you pay for.

Hyundai X900

Under the hood the Hyundai X900 quad-core tablet has much of the same hardware as the Cube U30GT2 I reviewed (and really liked… aside from the poor WiFi performance) recently.

But it has at least one key difference: Hyundai’s tablet has a higher resolution display.

It’s hard to say if that’s the reason all the demo videos I’ve seen for this tablet show a device that seems a bit sluggish at times.

While the tablet seems to score well in the Antutu benchmark, there seems to be a bit of lag sometimes when the handlers are trying to scroll or zoom — especially when using the web browser.

That said, the folks at Chinese site Padhz have posted a detailed review and report that the Hyundai Z900 quad-core tablet gets good battery life, decent WiFi reception, and better performance than Retina-display tablets with slower chips like the Allwinner A31 ARM Cortex-A7 quad-core CPU.

But even Padhz notes that some games, including Asphalt 7, run better on tablets with lower-resolution displays.

Geekbuying sells the Hyundai X900 for $252, and it’s available from Mixmelot for $236.
