The last time we heard from Chinese tablet manufacturer Ramos, we talked about their then newly released dual boot tablet. Well, this time around we’ll be taking a closer look at their 10.1-inch Ramos K100 tablet that is reportedly armed with an octa-core processor and 3G data and voice capabilities. Let’s check it out, shall we?
Ramos K100 – Octa-core, Android, and more
Let’s talk about that octa-core goodness first. This tablet PC features a zippy 1.7 GHz MediaTek MT6592 ARM Cortex-A7 8-core processor coupled with a Mali-450 GPU and 2 GB of RAM. Connectivity-wise, the Ramos K100 has you covered for pretty much everything (except LTE) – WiFi, Bluetooth, and 3G. It features support for China’s Unicorn HSPA+ too, though note that that probably won’t work very well with other networks in other countries.
The rest of the details haven’t been released, so we’ll have to wait for a more detailed spec sheet to know more. According to reports though, other features include a microUSB port, a 7,500 mAh battery, and a full HD 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution display. At the moment, we only know that this will run with an Android operating system, only we don’t know specifically which version as of yet.
When? And how much?
Another thing we don’t have official word about is pricing and availability. Knowing Ramos though, this will probably be quite affordable. Some sources indicate that the Ramos K100 may debut for less than US $250. We’re not sure if this tablet PC will ever officially land on this side of the pond, but we’re confident that you’ll be able to get one from e-commerce sites like AliExpress if you ever find yourself wanting one that badly.
At any rate, the Ramos K100 looks like a decent choice. Video junkies will be able to appreciate its full HD screen, while mobile warriors (who don’t mind being seen using a giant phone for calls) would like the added connectivity that it offers. We’re not sure how this will perform in the real world – unless of course we get to paw one for ourselves – but eight Cortex-A7 cores each pumping out 1.7 GHz doesn’t sound at all like a bad deal.
