This was cross-posted from Youku to YouTube two days ago. It slipped by me until now.
Let’s review the specs first:
200mm x 138mm x 8.8mm, 361.5g, Actions ATM7029 ARM Cortex A5 CPU at unknown speed, Vivente GC1000 quad-core GPU, 1GB DDR3 RAM, 16 GBs storage, WiFi, microUSB 2.0 OnTheGo, microHDMI-out, microSD slot up to 32GB, cameras 2MP front and 5MP back, no Bluetooth.
Now the video, after the break.
It’s all in Chinese but still worth a look. There’s an overview of the specs, then a demo of the included Office software opening sample files, and finally a racing game demo.
It looked a bit sluggish to me opening the Office files. This was supposed to be an A9 CPU, but it’s really a slower A5. That and a possible storage throughput bottleneck could account for that sluggishness. Overall, however, I am not impressed by it.
Those interested in an iPad Mini Clone should seriously look at the Onda V818 Mini instead.
Update, Thursday April 11, 2013: There is a rumor that next week at a Hong Kong trade show Ramos will show an updated version of this tablet with a Samsung Exynos 4412 quad-core CPU.
Update, Sunday April 14, 2013: I should have done this update earlier. The Onda V818 turns out to be not much better: Video: iPad Mini Clone Onda V818
