WM8880-MID Dual Core Tablet is Now Available for $59

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.

Here are some updated specs:

  • SoC – VIA WM8880 Dual core Cortex A9 processor @ 1.5GHz + Mali-400 MP2 GPU
  • System Memory – 512MB DDR3
  • Storage – 4GB Flash + micro SD slot
  • Display – 7-inch WVGA (800×480) display
  • Video Output – HDMI port
  • Video Playback – H.264, WMV, MPEG2/4, VP8 (up to 1080p)
  • Connectivity – Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g
  • Camera – 0.3MP Front and 0.3MP? rear cameras
  • Audio – Built-in speaker and microphone, earphone jack
  • USB – micro USB
  • Battery – 2000 mAh
  • Dimensions – 19 x 11 x 1.15 cm
  • Weight – 282 grams

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.

What is causing the slowness of this device? The low RAM? Or the Mali GPU … ?

Heeeey – that could be a competition; guess when the spec will hit a price point. Prize whatever spare ex-review items CNX has at the time :p

You must be kidding us ;-). A13 crap goes $7.2/1K on aliexpress: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/free-shipping-7inch-Q88-AllWinner-A13-1-0-1-2GHz-DDR3-512M-Tablet-PC-4GB-MID/960201679.html . And one guy with non-zero feedback sells singles at ~$20: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Cheapest-7-inch-Tablet-PC-Multi-touch-Screen-Android-4-0-ICS-Allwinner-A13-512MB-RAM/670657010.html . 10 people ordered it today (and noone else or before), including me – I hope to buy CNC/3d-printer/laser cutter there one sweet day, so really could use 1st-hand experience with buyer protection on Aliexpress :-D.

Hello, all. I have the WM8880-MID / V7 / VIA V7, Bought it on ebay, & may have paid too much, according to some. [$79 U.S., w/ “free shipping”.] It outputs 1080 HDMI, but if the source is not ‘great’ the picture suffers. Its faster than you might think, w/ a Antutu score of 15,600, or ranked about the same as the HTC One X. Its a little quirky, & the guys at techknow.me say the ROM is broken, because they can’t install paid apps, & moving apps to SD doesn’t work. But it easy to root, & some apps… Read more »

indeed sl0j0n is correct in that we are working to correct the factory firmwares issues at TechKnow forum and currently we do have a pre-alpha that does allow for the install of paid apps and has some speed tweaks but it has not gone puclic atm 😉 we do expect to very soon [this week] release a pre-uberoid modded lite firmware that will have to suffice for most until we get all of the other issues such as apps2sd and a few slight ram glitches sorted trust that we are working on the issues with due diligence but will not… Read more »
