Hi guys, I'm new to the forum, I never had a tablet before, I'm not the early adopter type ( My income does not allow me to ), but I'll have to become one since I'm about to forcedly become an Android developer. I was searching for locally available affordable tablets, and I was almost decided to buy the COBY MID7015, BUT, as soon as I found out that the MID8024 model had the A8 Cortex CPU, I gave up on the 7015 ... BUT, again, I kept my research and found out about the Dropad A8 and Dropad A8X... so I searched local ebay ( Mercado Livre, Brazil ) for Dropad models, and amazingly, I found the Dropad A8X for just a bit more that the MID8024.... after reading the full specs of the model, I bought it. I hope to have it delivered in 3 days ( tops 11/06/2011 I hope ). This model is a total bargain! Specs: ( From (manufacturer?) ) ( Sorry, couldn't manage to create a good table ) ITEM / Specification CPU Samsung S5PC 110 CPU Speed Cotex A8 1GHZ Operation system Google Android 2.2 Internal Memory 512MB Hard drive 512M ROM+8G TF Card( up to 32G) Flash Flash 10.3 Display size 7 inch touch TFT, Multi-Touch display Screen Type Capacitive Type Display resolution 800x480 Video format 1920x1080 G-Sensor Yes Camera 3M pixel 0.3 WiFi Wi-fi(802.11b/g/n) 3G (WCDMA/TDSCDMA/EVDO) External 3G module drive Bluetooth Yes,built in GPS Yes,built in Microphone Yes, built in Speakers Yes, built in office word,Excel,Power point and GMAIL Video format RM,RMVB,DAT,VO,MP4 TS,WMV MOV,MKV AVI, FLV,MPEG-2,HD Audio format MP3,WMA,APE,FLAC,AAC,AC3,WAV Picture format JPEG,BMP,GIF,PNG Document format CHM,EPUB,UMD,WDL,CEB,PDG,DOC,XLS,PPT,TXT,PDF,HTML Games 3D Games External buttons *on/off, Sleep/week, Volume up/down*Menu*Home*Return Battery Built-in Lithiumpolymer Battery, 4100mAH, 3.7V Power DC 5V/2A Computer Interfaces(I/O ports and cards)1*TF Card slot 2*Mini USB2.0(Host+Otg) 1* HDMI slot 1*3.5mm headphoneHDMI Yes,1080P Dimention 19.2x12.8x1.4cm Color black Weight 0.45KG In the Box1* headphone 1* AC Power(100V-240V input, 9V output) 2* USB cables 1* Manual Highlights: ( Many ! ) Fast and new power saving version CPU Capacitve Screen ( 5 points AFAIK ) GPS Bluetooth USB charging Metal/Aluminum casing ( AFAIK ) Low Weight ( beats any iPad ) 8g internal SD Card I'm so excited! But I wonder: ( curiosities of a newcomer soon to become a developer ) 1.) Does this CPU really integrates 512 Mb RAM and 512Mb ROM? 2.) What's the catch between the 512MB ROM and the internal TF Card ( 8gb) ? I can barely wait for this new device! Some links Possible manufacturer Youku Video Online shop 1 Another link Article (original from china) I'll post unboxing videos ( I have to shoot the unboxing, for safety.... ) and other show videos ( Won't be HD quality, I don't have an HD camera ) I bet this tablet will be loved in the android community, unless it shows any ugly malfunction. See you soon!
