Ramos i10 Pro launches with Dual OS and 3G. i10 Note and i8 Pro in development.

i8 proAt an event in China today Ramos introduced three Windows 8.1 tablets. Two of these we’ve seen before but one is new. There’s also some information about the dual OS ability of the i10 Pro.

We’re expecting variants of these device specifications to appear over time but for today Ramos have pitched three devices are three different segments. The 8-inch i8 Pro runs the Z7340D CPU and comes with the basic Windows 8.1 tablet specifications. There’s a GPS on board but we’re expecting this to be a low-cost Windows 8 tablet. No availability or price has been given but when we spoke to Ramos last week they were indicating that it would come ‘next’ after the i10 Pro.


The Ramo i10 Pro is shown with 3G specifications and is the model with the Dual OS feature. Android 4.2.2 is on board with Windows 8.1. The FullHD screen sits above the same basic Windows tablet specifications of Z3740D, 2GB RAM and 32GB SSD. Some talk of 64-bit Windows in some sources leads us to believe that the CPU might get upgraded to the Baytrail-CR variants when they’re fully available. The i10 Pro will be available in 5 colours.

The 3G function is enabled with the Ultrastick 3G SD card from Huawei which we understand is bundled with the i10 Pro. Clearly that might not be the case in other regions.

Indications are that this is a dual-boot solution as we saw demonstrated at CeBIT although final confirmation has been given. A dual-boot solution might not cut across the Google Play non-fragmentation agreement but we wait to see just how much more than basic Android this build is.

The i10 Pro will be available in China from the 25th of March for 2699 Yuan which is $433. Our hands-on video is below.


The new model we haven’t seen before is the i10 Note which offers Windows 8.1 on a 1280×800 screen but with a pen. It’s not clear if this is a capacitive-only pen. Indications are that the product is still in development.


We’ll update you as soon as we have new information. We’ve already contacted Ramos for a review device.

    I think this whole Windows and Android on a single device thing is a dead end.

    Maybe this site should start reviewing Windows 8 apps to get the word out on what is actually available (if you don’t mind the occasional commenter accusing you of being paid by the developer/company). I keep hearing how Windows doesn’t have as many apps but if I knew that the apps I would actually use are available then I’d be more likely to get a Windows 8 UMPC. Of course, I’m not talking about games.

    For Android, most of the apps I use were due to me seeing nicely written reviews about them or recommended by friends. Even though its Google, searching through the Google Play store is not that great.

    You’re probably confusing Windows 8 and Windows RT. While RT is a dead platform with no future, in Windows 8 under the terrible Metro interface you can find any standard Windows application you might want to use.

    I don’t understand why everyone wants Android on a tablet. It is a great OS for phones but too restricted for tablets. It was originally Apple who made almost all people believe that the only right OS for a tablet is the one from cellphones.

    Just last weekend someone stoled my Viliv S5 from my car. Unfortunately there is not a single device I could buy to replace it. Even if I drop the requirement that it needs to fit in my pocket, my only chance is the 8″ Toshiba Encore. Other Windows tablets are missing either GPS or HDMI.

    I want a 6″ UMPC with Windows or any other desktop OS, please!!!

    My guess on the acronyms:

    DB: Dual Boot
    CR: Cost Reduced

    Intel has been subsidizing platform costs because the platform costs more to implement than competitors. They are supposed to gradually get the cost down and make it close to zero by Cherry Trail.
