Android 4.2 Laptop Boasts 13.3″ Display, Dual Core WM8880 SoC

Orange Pi Development Boards

Charbax has just found a 13.3″ laptop powered by WonderMedia WM8880 dual core Cortex A9 processor running Android 4.2 manufactured by Shenzhen Honlin, and selling for about $108 in China (retail or factory price?). That’s the first time I see a Chinese ARM based laptop with a somewhat decent screen, so I went to Aliexpress to find the device or a similar one, and after going through all the 13.3″ Android tablets, I found a no brand laptop, model GA1331F, sold by Shenzhen GA Technology Development with apparently the same specs for  about $170 including shipping via EMS.

Android_Laptop_13.3GA1331F Laptop specifications:

  • SoC – WonderMedia WM8880 Dual-Core ARM Cortex A9 @ 1.5GHz with Mali-400 MP2 GPU
  • System Memory – 1GB DDR3 RAM @ 1033MHz, with an option to get 2GB
  • Storage – 8GB or 16GB MLC NAND flash, SD card slot (Up to 32GB)
  • Display – 13.3″ LCD screen (1280 x 800)
  • Connectivity – 10/100M Ethernet, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v3.0. 3G via external USB dongle.
  • Camera – 0.3MP front facing camera
  • USB – 2x USB 2.0
  • Video Output – HDMI
  • Audio – Mic and headphone jacks, and built-in stereo speakers
  • Keyboard – Standard English 78 keys with build-in touch pad
  • Battery type – 3000mAH, 3.7V Li-on, good for 6 hours (typical use).
  • Dimensions – 32.8x23x2.8cm
  • Weight – 1.1 kg

This laptop runs Android 4.2, but if we are to believe the description on Aliexpress it can also dual boot to Windows CE 6.0. It comes with a power adapter, a manual, a warranty card, and CD with drivers…

Wondermedia WM8880 is one of the cheapest dual core processor available on the market today, and can be found in tablets for about $40 in China, and around $60 in the rest of the world. That’s the retail price. The 13.3″ display, casing, and all the extra ports add quite a lot to the cost, and at $170, it’s just about $30 less than the cheapest 13.3″ Intel laptop I could find, for much lower performance, albeit most probably, a better battery life.

You can watch Charbax video about the 13.3″ Android laptop.

We went with Charbax over Huaqiangbei today, and the price for this netbook is still the same (650RMB). Disappointed by Shenzhen this time – cheapest tablet is still above $15, cheapest mirror stick above $10, no impulse buys of useless crap this time it seems :-E

trackback

[…] Android laptops on the market come with tiny 7″ to 11.6″ screens, and those with larger displays (e.g. 13.3″) are often crippled with a subpart processor. Hewlett Packard is about to change […]
