After the RAmos W7 and the Hott MD500, another Android Tablet powered by a Rockchip RK2808 has been announced – the Pasen MID5. Distributed by Pasen in Italy, this Mobile Internet Device (MID) brings similar specs like the other 5″ Rockchip MIDs. Some say, that it might be just a rebranded version of the RAmos W7, but we haven’t yet seen more than a specs table and one single promotional illustration:
That’s how Pasen presents this device on their website. For me it doesn’t look like the RAmos W7 on this first view.
Let’s have a look at the specs as the company announced:
|Processor||Rockchip RK2808 600 Mhz|
|Screen||5″ / 800 x 480 pixels / 16:9 / WVGA / TFT / Touchscreen|
|Storage||Internal Storage unknown / expandable with micro SD Card|
|A/V Output||built-in speaker|
|Network||WLAN (according to Wi-Fi logo on the image)|
|Connectors||USB / HDMI Video Out|
|Battery||2300mAh / 4.5 hours battery life|
|Extras||SD Card Slot / Remote Control|
You see, there are a lot of unknown factors about this device. No price and date has been announced. I won’t speculate about the abilities of the Pansen MID5 or the similarities to other devices it could have, as long as there are not more details about it. I just think that they have to promote it a bit better, if they really want to sell some of these devices.
The Rockchip processor already showed his capability to handle large videos and Android, so let’s wait and see how this device performs.
