There was some confused when MeegoPad T05, T06 and T07 Cherry Trail TV dongles details surfaced with specifications changing from sites to sites. One forum post on x86pad.com, clarified MeegoPad products line up, including a new MeegoPad T08 Cherry Trail projector with battery. MeegoPad T07 was confirmed to be actively cooled with a small fan, and come with 2GB as seen on GeekBuying and GearBest, but the company also just launched a flexible funding Indiegogo campaign for the 4GB RAM version.

MeegoPad T07 is pre-loaded with an activated version of Windows 10. But note that the company do not have a stellar track record when it comes to license as they apparently shipped a MeegoPad T04 with an unlicensed Windows 10 to Lon Seidman, a YouTube reviewer, and then provided a link to some cracking software to fix the issue…
They ask for $109 for the “early supporter” reward, which includes T07 with Windows 10 Home, an HDMI extension cable, a micro USB to USB cable, a power cable, and a carrying case. The company has also included MeegoPad T05 in the crowdfunding campaign featuring 2GB RAM only, and available barebone for $79, or with Windows 10 Home for $94. Shipping is not included, but is free to North America, and the few European countries I tried, and $10 to the rest of the world. Delivery is scheduled for January 2016.
