Microsoft and Google may not approve Windows and Android dual booting devices at the moment, but that isn’t stopping Ramos from launching such a tablet, as the Ramos i10 Pro is designed to dual boot Windows 8.1 and Android Jelly Bean 4.2. The tablet will be powered by the Intel Z3740D Bay Trail chip, matched up with a 2 GB RAM along with 32 GB internal memory. The 10.1 inch display will be lit up by 1920 x 1080 pixels. The tablet will also be 3G compatible and is slated to go on sale in China on March 25th for $450 or less. There’s no word yet of the international availability of the device.
Meanwhile, that’s not the only tablet that the Chinese manufacturer has lined up for release, as the Ramos i10 Note is in the pipeline as well. Running Windows 8.1, the i10 Note gets its name from its compatibility with a pen, allowing users to make pen input right on the display. The i10 Note offers the same specs as the i10 Pro, but with a slightly lower resolution of 1280 X 800 pixels.
There’s an 8 inch Windows tablet in the works, one that’s tentatively named i8 Pro. The tablet running Windows 8.1 offers GPS and is built around an Intel Z3740D chip (the same as seen on the Dell Venue 8 Pro and others). Other specs include a 2 GB RAM and 32 GB of storage along with front and rear cameras. The tablet is designed to offer basic computing and can be a direct competitor to the new crop of 8 inch Windows tablets that have come out lately. The i8 Pro doesn’t have a clear launch date, though it’s likely to be after the i10 Pro. Also, given Ramos’ strength in coming up with budget priced devices, it will be interesting to see how much the i8 Pro is priced when launched.
Another tablet being talked about is the i10s, which is believed to be an Android-only device with specifications identical to that of the dual booting i10 Pro. Meanwhile, a bigger i12 version is also rumored, but there’s not much known about it yet.
