MeegoPad T07 Cherry Trail TV Stick with 4GB RAM Costs $109 (Crowdfunding)

Orange Pi Development Boards

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_4GB_RAMMeegoPad T07 specifications:

  • SoC – Intel Atom x5-Z8300 “Cherry Trail” quad core processor @ 1.44 GHz (Turbo frequency: 1.84 GHz) with Intel Gen8 HD graphics (2W SDP)
  • System Memory –  4GB LPDDR3-1600
  • Storage – 32GB eMMC 5.0 flash + micro SD slot up to 128GB
  • Video Output – HDMI 1.4 male connector
  • Audio I/O – HDMI, 3.5mm audio jack
  • Connectivity – Dual band 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.0
  • USB – 2x USB 2.0 host port, 1x micro USB port (power only)
  • Misc – Power button
  • Power Supply – 5V/2A via micro USB port
  • Dimensions – 106 x 53 x 13.5 mm
  • Weight – 50 grams

MeegoPad_T07_ConnectorsMeegoPad 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.

with 4GB of RAM this can be used as a decent Office desktop machine. Plug it in the a screen, connect a Bluetooth keyboard/mouse and you have a cheap workstation.

Z-8300 only supports 2GB RAM. I did a little checking a while back and found out that the Z-8300 uses the same package as the previous generation so is probably more or less a drop in replacement for manufacturers. The Z-8500 & Z-8700 use a different package, hence why we’re seeing so many Z-8300 based devices.

Beware, the youtube reviewer mr. Lon Seidman did not tell the truth about meegopad, he bought the product from a third party seller, and it was the third party seller that suggested the crack. I advice the potential buyers to investigate something before believing anything written or said on the web.

That’s the problem with these manufacturers and vendors – it’s nearly impossible to do any vetting or due diligence…what is the evidence that Lon “lied” vs just being ignorant given this?

anyone any idea how the eMMC performs (read/write speeds).
Also a pity there is no USB 3.0.
Also I’m curious on how well the WiFi performs. My experience with arm based dongles is not that good.
(and of course it is a pity they do not offer a barebone version without windows of the T07; I just want to run Linux on it; for the T05 the barebone is $ 15 cheaper than the W10 one).

if you look below it says: “Ships from and sold by BoLv Trade Co.,ltd” Doesnt that suggest a third party seller? You are not supposed to see this if you buy it directly from meegopad. Funny thing, is that mr. Lon Seidman in the t04 model review video suggests the viewers not to buy the item because it has licence problems, yet he has his affiliate link connecting to third party seller’s sales page. His feedback also is written below meegopad and not the actual seller.

The truth is that Mr Seidman changed his link now, connecting to the original seller, meegopad. His previous link was connected to this seller: http://goo.gl/FmWSKN
Beware from his “honest” reviews.

I do agree that MeeGoPad’s third party sellers are selling unactivated products and you can’t even figure out which one is the official store, which is buried beneath other stores. MeeGoPad doesn’t have a English team, but they should improve their presence and name brand and crack down on false listings.

Check out the forum @ http://forum.x86pad.com for some details.

lol, i saw that Lon seidman changed the link, first it was the daretang store, later when i checked back it was MeeGOpad store.
He just replaced it with an identical advertisement.
