    What's the estimated delivery time for this one, since this is a pre sale item?

    •  

      In the middle of this October.

  •  

    Beware as they say its in stock but its not. I ordered on the 11th from their deal http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/79601 and it still hasn't been posted. So if you dont like waiting then skip ordering from them. I will in future as first impressions count.

      I'd also beware that they are probably using Apple's reject screens. I mean we all know how bad the retail Apple screens can be, so the rejects must be terrible.

      I'd make sure they have a solid returns policy or you might be stuck with dead pixels, colour cast, blotches, uneven backlight, backlight bleed, or any combination of those lol.

        Ooops! My bad.. I had been assuming all this time that it was 2560x1536 just like the U2711's.. I have both and never registered for a sec that ipad3 was a squarer res =D duh

  •  

    the same internal in an android stick delivered for $65 before, its hard to justify this price with a screen and battery added.

      But… it's "a lovely design".

      •  

        "Retina" display, 4 : 3, wide even bezel looks kinda familiar.. like a Xoom or something

        OH SNAP I FORGOT THIS HAS APPLE BITS THIS EXPLAINS

      •  

        I remember reading somewhere that Apple rejected batches of screens from one or more of the component manufacturers for not being up to scratch. I'd lay odds that this is where they've ended up. Maybe we'll find out at some point…

      When your sitting on your couch of an evening fingering your android stick and nothing seems to be happening you might see the value of a touch screen.

      •  

        "of an evening" ? Interesting way to put it..

        "Some speakers of vernacular English varieties, particularly in isolated or mountainous regions of the southern United States, use phrases such as of a night or of an evening in place of Standard English at night or in the evening"

          Who knows, maybe he has separate couches for the morning and afternoon too. :)

    Can you say lag? Apple had to use a quad core graphics processor to make this run smoothly… I wonder how this performs?

    •  

      RK3066 = quad core MALI-400 GPU :)

        Not according to this - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rockchip#RK3066

        "RK3066

        These high performance mobile processor is a Dual Core Cortex A9"

        Even the website selling the tablet describes it as a dual core 1.6Ghz unit.

        • +1 vote

          It's a dual core CPU with a quad core GPU.

  •  

    I'd be more worried about battery life, cheaper tablets have always had issues in that regard, I can only hope the advance in screens doesn't make the differences more marked.

    •  

      My Cube U30Gt has excellent battery life. Enough to rival the Tegra2 Lenovo Thinkpad tab.

      This tab is a slight improvement of the Cube U30GT along with a bigger battery, so this will last even longer. The concern though is the build quality, which can vary between tablets…. some people have Cube U30GT's with defective touchscreens and poor wifi.

    looking at the warranty.
    1-Year Manufacturer's Warranty: this warranty is offered directly by the manufacturer. Should the item become defective within the manufacturer's warranty period (physical damages and damages caused by incorrect usage excluded), customers may send the unit back to our Hong Kong office. We will help forwarding the item to the manufacturer for repair, and will look after the progress. The customer will need to cover shipping fees both ways.

    now that sucks.
    from auspost, its 31.50 1 way registered post to HK so that would be 63 dollars return?

    with signature that would be 51.50 1 way to HK. 103 for return. seriously?

      This really shows the level of confidence they have in the products they sell. Places like DX will cover all shipping expenses for a certain period (90 days I think) and certainly return postage for the period of the warranty.

      I'd have to agree that this would be a show stopper of a policy for me.

    Is this actually a bargain? They seem like regular prices for the items (whether these are good price or not) from this vendor.

  • +2 votes

    In b4 apple lawsuits for the term "retina" and other things related to rectangles.

  •  

    I ordered a portable android pc thing from their deal about 4 days ago, even paid extra for dhl (I was excited) but it hasn't been mailed yet. So you may need some patience when dealing with them. :)

    Doesn't seem like a bargain to me. I mean I'm an Android fan but I've also used an iPad and for 35% more you can have an iPad 3;

    • its the REAL THING
    • its a brand name
    • it exists right now
    • its has great battery life
    • you can buy it at your local store
    • build quality is good
    • no warranty hassles
    • there are apps that can take advantage of the hi res

    Doesn't appeal to me when all your really getting from this deal is the extra res, OH and and 3.8% discount….

    •  

      Nearly 100% more mate…

      •  

        Sorry my mistake, let's just say for a couple hundred more or in fact around 60% more, you have the real deal….

        •  

          The chinese tabs are getting better and better. I think in a couple of years time, their quality may actually be good enough to rival that of ASUS etc.

  •  

    I'm wondering if the CPU and GPU can support the Retina display

  •  

    The deal post is still cool, I didn't realise Android hi res tabs were about :)
