Rockchip 3188 Nextbook 8 Listed


It’s too little, too late, for too much.

Too little: Non-Retina 1024 x 768 IPS screen, 1.6GHz Rockchip 3188 CPU, 1GB of RAM, a stingy 8GBs of internal storage, a 0.3MP front and unknown-MP back camera.

Too late: It’s April; this long after CES, who cares?

Too much: US$199. That's US$20 more than the Acer Iconia A1-830 that has 16GBs of internal storage.

For those undeterred, the website listing.

ICOO Fatty 3G iPad Mini Clone

ICOO, which never replied to my email inquiring if there was indeed a 2GB RAM version of the original ICOO Fatty, has released a 3G version of its iPad Mini clone [Google Translate].


There is nothing other than the 3G to recommend this tablet. It has a 1024 x 768 IPS screen, a 1.3Ghz MediaTek 8382 CPU, just 1GB of RAM and a stingy 8GBs of internal storage.

What makes it interesting is that the cellular frequencies are specified: GSM 850/900/1800/1900. According to this worldwide cellular frequency chart, the Fatty 3G would — ideally — work in the United States.

Onda V975i: Android And Windows?!

In June, Onda will offer a download of Windows 8.x that can be installed on its Intel 64-bit Retina-class 9.7-inch screen V975i tablet [Google Translate].

For those who can read the Chinese:

My 2011 Is Your 2014

WARNING: From time to time, I get really pissed off and must do a Very Angry Post. This is one of those posts. Stop reading now if you don’t like such posts.

Here, 2011: Apple’s Next Greedy Move: Exclusivity

2014: Apple, Google offering game developers special incentives for exclusivity

Now just STFU when you find what I write hard to believe.

You are the idiot. Not me.

The shit I have to eat from people who can’t think…

Today I’m getting shit over Chinese tablets. Come back in three to five years when practically everyone is using a Chinese-brand tablet.

iPad Mini Clone With Amlogic CPU


And that’s all there is, just a photo [Google Translate]. Trying to read the cards reveal only that it has a 7.9-inch screen at a disappointing 1024 x 768 with two variants: 1GB RAM with 8GBs or 16GBs of internal storage. Manufacturer(s) and specific Amlogic CPU are unknown.

This might not be something that’ll be manufactured. It could be just a reference design.
