Remember SunnyCube V7 tablet with a dual core Cortex A9 SoC available for just $40 in China? I had a target between $50 to $55 on Aliexpress, but I’ve been explained I may have been too optimistic with shipping fees and the 5% seller fee in Aliexpress platform. Nevertheless, the device, or a similar device, based on WonderMedia WM8880 is now available for $59 including shipping on GeekBuying, which puts it in slightly higher price (~$7 more) than AllWinner A13 tablets, but with much more processing power, and HDMI output.

This tablet comes with a charger, a micro USB to USB female adapter, and a user’s manual. The Antutu score in Geekbuying is just 7,000 instead of the 10,000 score found last time on Wondermedia WM8880 reference tablet. I’d assume GeekBuying screenshot is incorrect, because the screen resolution of the device is 800×480, but the Antutu screenshot shows 600×1024, and very low 3D GPU score. I’d expect something around 9,000 to 10,000 for this device. This tablet does not have great specs, but this may just do for your kids, or if you just need a tablet for some basic tasks.
