Here’s another ultraslim tablet, close to 6 mm in thickness, but this time one that doesn’t challenge the records of the iPad Air 2 and Dell Venue 8 7000. I’m talking about the Hisense VIDAA Pad, that has just been made available on preorder, priced at $163.
For this price you get a 7.85 inch slate with a a Retina-like resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels and Android 4.4 as the OS. There’s a Rockchip RK3288 quad core processor inside and an ARM Mali 764 GPU on board. The device uses 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of ROM and an 8 megapixel camera, as well as WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and USB Host. There’s a 4400 mAh Li-Po battery inside and the whole thing measures just 6.35 mm in thickness.
It also weighs 320 grams and its screen is an IPS one. From what I can see we also get solid speakers, a microSD card slot and rounded corners. The sides look like they have a chromed edge, which looks pretty nice. VIDAA Pad adopts an aluminum unibody design. iPad Mini what?
