Back in August 2009, we were shown a mobile internet device that – at least externally – impressed the hair off our heads. The device was officially shown the next month and it looked even better than before. Around December (this was when Eclair was first being talked about), we learned that the device would be shipping with Android 1.5.
Fast forward to now and the RAmos W7 is finally shipping for about $150 (999 yuan which comes out to about $146). The specs remain the same across the board ( 4.8-inch touchscreen, 128-megs of RAM, a 600mhz Rockchip processor, 8-gigs of internal storage, etc) and that includes the software: this tablet *still* sports Android 1.5. Pocketables is also reporting that it’s not guaranteed that this thing would be seeing any upgrades in the future.
Regardless, the device is out there now and available for purchase. It does support Flash Lite and comes with WiFi for connectivity. There’s also a healthy selection of video and audio formats to choose from. Unfortunately, we can’t confirm that this device will have access to the Android market. Yay? Nay?
