Ramos K1 Tablet: So Pretty, So Sad

PC Pop has a gallery of images, some of which I’ve cloned for this post (click any for large).

The Ramos K1 is, as expected, gorgeous.

It is also, as originally rumored, quite sad.

Partial specs (no one seems to have them all yet): Quad-core AllWinner A31s CPU, 1GB RAM, 16B storage, 7.85-inch IPS screen at 1024 x 768, electronic compass, gravity sensor, HDMI-out, GPS, 2MP front and 5MP back cameras, microSD card slot, USB port, 373.7g, 5,500mAh battery.

The AllWinner A31s is actually a step up from the original Ramos X10 tablet, which used the third-class (in terms of speed) Actions ATM7029 CPU. But the A31s has an AnTuTu score in the 12,000 range, compared to the 17,000-range of the Rockchip 3188, the 27,000-range of the octa-core Exynos 5410, and the 29,000-range of the Intel Atom. So there’s not a lot of computing power here.

And there’s just 1GB of RAM, which is just inexplicable — if not inexcusable — in the second half of 2013.

Surprisingly, this will be priced at 799 locally, making it come in 100 less than the original X10. But did Ramos really have any choice in that price? Most iPad Mini clones (and I’ll refer to this as one of them despite its HTC One-like design) are now selling locally for 799 — and, like the Chuwi V88, they have 2GBs of RAM, not 1GB.

I wish HTC would get it into its head to do such a tablet. The HTC One style in a 4:3 tablet — with 2GBs of RAM and with a microSD card slot, dammit (HTC seems to dislike them) — would sell like mad. And it would be the first 4:3 tablet that Apple could not sue out of existence. It looks nothing like an iPad Mini — in fact, I think it looks better. It looks like a 21st-century tablet.

Some more pictures of its gorgeousness:

Ah, if only it had 2GBs of RAM and the Rockchip 3188. At the very least.

Maybe there will be a K3 like that?
