You know you've made it once companies start coming out of the woodwork
using your operating system. Case in point? Google's Android
, which has
now slipped onto yet another Android late that you probably wouldn't
have heard of otherwise. RAmos is a Chinese outfit that has actually
been around for quite some time making mobile products, and its newest
might just be the most compelling yet. The 9.4" W42 is a uniquely sized
tablet, boasting Android 4.0, a Mali-400 GPU, and a Samsung-built
quad-core CPU (Exynos 4412). The touch panel packs a 1280x800 IPS
resolution, and internally there's 1GB of RAM, 16GB of inbuilt storage, a
microSD expansion slot, and front/rear cameras.
price? Around $200, putting it right in line with the Nexus 7 and a slew
of other Android slates that are hitting that magical price point.
Unfortunately, there's no telling if Jelly Bean will ever make its way
over, which may dissuade some.
