The Pipo Max-M1 Pro tablet is yet another one of those affordable models with a quad core CPU inside. The device goes for $162 and it packs an IPS 9.7 inch screen and Android 4.2. The CPU inside is a 1.8 GHz Rockchip unit and the device is pictured below.


The chipset here is the Rockchip RK3188, China’s first 28 nm chip. It integrates 4 ARM Cortex A9 cores and as a GPU we’ve got the ARM Mali 400 with a frequency of up to 533 MHz. We also get 2D acceleration and optimized power consumption. The IPS LCD screen offers 178 degrees of viewing angles and a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels, plus a maximum brightness of 650 nit, two more the normal screen brightness.

The M1 Pro runs Android 4.2.2 with several customizations from the tablet market, brand new UI, with fresh icons and some bundled apps. The tablet relies on an 8000 mAh battery (3.7V), a Li-Ion setup that offers a very good battery life. The screen supports 10 point multitouch and has great accuracy rate.

Finally, Bluetooth 4.0 is also on board, together with dual 2 MP cameras and 1 GB of RAM.
