Chinese device maker Ramos is selling a new tablet with a 9.4 inch display, an aluminum case, and a 1.4 GHz Samsung Exynos 4412 quad-core processor with Mali 400 graphics. In other words, if you take the guts of a Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone and throw them into a tablet with a screen slightly smaller than Apple’s iPad, you’d have something like the Ramos W42.

PandaWill sells the tablet for $247, although I’ve seen prices as low as $218 from other stores I’m less familiar with.

Ramos W42

The Ramow W42 has 1GB of RAM, 16GB of flash storage, and a 1280 x 800 pixel IPS display with 178-degree viewing angles. It has a capacitive touchscreen with support for 10-point multitouch, WiFi, Bluetooth, a 2MP rear camera, and a 0.3MP front-facing camera.

In a lot of ways, the Ramos W42 reminds me of the Hyundai T7 tablet, which has similar specifications but a smaller 7 inch screen. The Ramos tablet has a higher capacity 5400mAh battery though, which the company says should be good for 6 to 7 hours of run time.

Other features include a microSD card slot, micro USB port, and Android 4.0.4 operating system.

Ramos doesn’t have the name recognition or reputation in the West as some tablet makers (such as Samsung or Asus), but Pandawill does offer a limited 12-month warranty, so if you get a clunker there’s a chance you may be able to get it replaced or repaired.

  1. Should be a great tab with better than average support from the mfg (that being Chinese mfg.). Dealing with tabs from China does take a bit of bravado, but if you are willing to do a bit of the work as far as frequenting the better forums for updates and such, you will find yourself with a lot more tab for the money.
    9.4″ seems just about perfect. It’s wide screen for movies and games, bigger than a 7″ or even the new Fire; yet not cumbersome like the 10.1″ tabs.
    For sure, visit the forums and you will fnd Ramos one of the more respected brands.

    1. This will be my next tab. It is getting rave reviews, is showing up with little to no issues.
      I might mention for those who live in the US they might look at DX – Deal Extreme as a source. They have a super return policy and a return spot in the US if there is any issue demanding return. I have had some really bad luck returning a tab all the way to China.

  2. The specs of the tablet is really good at good price point. But this kinds of tablet lacks in after sell software support and updates.
