Ramos i10 Pro, The First Ever Dual OS Tablet, Launches In China

Hand it to Ramos for going where no tablet vendors has gone before. The wizards at the Chinese hardware company have found a way to load up both Android and Windows 8.1 on one slate.

Speaking of numbers, Ramos actually introduced three new Windows 8.1 tablets at an anticipated event held in China last week. Rumors about the company launching its dual boot slate were abound, amid whispers that Microsoft and Google were pressurizing brand vendors from not venturing into this area.

Anyway, not only is the Ramos dual boot tablet is well named, it is also quite feature rich.

The Ramos i10 Pro arrives with 3G capabilities, and the abilities to switch between Android 4.2.2 and good old Windows 8.1. And unlike most whitebox vendors, Ramos impressively offers a full HD resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels on the tablet.

All this is made possible by the Intel Bay Trail-T Z3740D chip with 2GB of memory and 32GB storage.

Along with the unveil of this nifty device, the company is also preparing two more tablets, one being the Ramos i8 Pro, as we heard, a smaller version of the flagship dual boot slate, also offering the ability to switch between the operating systems, but at a lower, more affordable price point.

And what is a launch without a Note product, right?

Ramos has also lifted the veils of the Ramos i10 Note, a product that was not heard of before. This only is placed below the Ramos i10 Pro, and comes with a lower resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels, and only Windows 8.1 as the default operating system.

While pricing of these other two tablets remain in the unknown, the Ramos i10 Pro, however, is very, very competitively priced at just $433. I’d buy two at that price!

It has officially arrived in China, today, March 25. In five vibrant colors, at that.

    a phone would have made more sense.

      I agree, Ray. I don’t really feel the need to have 2 OS on a tablet. On computers/phones, it’s a different story.

  • Emily W

    This is an impressive feat no doubt. I’m just curious with how long it takes to switch OS and how effective these devices will be long term. I’m going to wait and see if there are any issues that come along from this.

  • Wayne S

    It’s interesting that it’s only $433 for now. However, that does make me question how good the device actually is and if it’s actually worth it.

    • Ted Smith

      It’s definitely affordable and a good deal on the surface, but as you said, Wayne, I really doubt how good this will work at first. Even if it does work well, I don’t see having two OS as a necessity.

      Ramos has come out with some good products in the past and partnered with Intel last year to launch the Ramos i9, which received good reviews after its release
