Ramos i10 Pro Dual OS Tablet Officially Launched

Chinese device manufacturer Ramos has just launched a new dual OS tablet in the market called the i10 Pro. The device allows consumers to use either Windows 8.1 or Android 4.2.2. Jelly Bean.  Although it has been reported that Google and Microsoft are against devices that have dual-booting abilities with several manufacturers (Huawei, Acer, Samsung) scrapping their dual-boot products it seems that Ramos hasn’t received the memo yet.

The Ramos i10 Pro uses an Intel Atom Z3740D Bay Trail processor. This processor has four cores and has a clock speed of 1.33GHz with a burst frequency of 1.83 GHz. The device sports a 10-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels making it possible to view full HD content on the device.

While the i10 Pro can connect to a Wi-Fi network it also can connect to a 3G mobile network with the help of the bundled Huawei Ultrastick 3G SD card. This is basically an SD card that doesn’t have memory but instead comes with a 3G radio that’s capable of download speeds of up to 21Mbps.  All a consumer has to do is to insert it inside the SD card slot of the device to allow 3G mobile access.

As far as the implementation of the dual-booting goes we are still no sure how this is done. Consumers may have to perform a hard reset to switch between the different operating systems.

The Ramos i10 Pro will become available this coming March 25 in the Chinese market and is expected to sell for less than $450. There’s no information yet if this device will make its way to the international market however we are sure that it will become available from reseller sites.

Aside from this device Ramos also introduced two other tablets which are the i8  Pro and the i10 Note.

The i8 Pro is an 8 –inch tablet with a resolution of 1280×800 pixels that uses an Intel Z3740D processor. It has 2GB of RAM and an internal storage capacity of 32GB. Its other features include GPS, Wi-Fi and 3G. The company designed this to be a budget friendly device although no pricing information has been released yet.

The other tablet that Ramos announced is the i10 Note which is similar in specs to the i10 Pro however only runs on Windows 8.1 and has a lower-resolution 1280 x 800 pixel display. It also has pen support.

  1. It’ll actually play to Microsoft’s advantage. Probably Microsoft is paying these companies secret to come out with such devices.

  2. How can’t they not care if its a legal case against them in a court? But then again, I’m pretty sure it’s not in their agreements with Google or Microsoft.

  3. Looks like Ramos does not care for their memos. Well Android is open source, so they can offer it without the Google Services, but Microsoft won’t be happy.

  4. I don’t think the two companies are going to do anything about this, because this is not going to capture a lot of market share.

  5. Exactly. Probably they’ll talk to this company now. Anyway, I don’t think small scale manufacturers in China will care for all that.

  6. Now Google and Microsoft don’t have a problem with this? They did make the other company stop the development of such a product. Now why let this Chinese company release a very similar product?

  7. iProTablet — is a U.S. source with product details and pricing on the new Ramos I-Series
