Edward Weinert: Windows Tablet, Android Phone

Edward Weinert is writing up his search for his ideal combination of Windows tablet and Android phone.

And, as has been pointed out earlier in Comments, it bears a striking resemblance to what was once called the Hisense Sero 8 Pro [Google Translate].

1Pad thinks it’ll have a Rockchip 3288 CPU, 2GBs of RAM, 16GBs of internal storage, 2MP front and 5MP back cameras, a 4,500mAh battery — which seems scarily inadequate for that 3288 CPU — and Android 4.4.

Hisense is so far off my radar, I didn’t know until now that I posted about this once before.
