Pipo, known more for their e-book and MP4 players, recently launched the U1 Android tablet, which packs quite a punch for a ¥799 price tag (~USD $125).  A Rockchip RK3066 dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor featuring the Mali 400 GPU provides the horsepower needed to drive Jelly Bean.  In addition to the solid processor, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory should be sufficient in keeping things going without too many reboots. 

Other hardware includes a 2MP front facing camera, and Wi-Fi 802.11n/Bluetooth 2.0 connectivity.  A 3250mAh battery pack is probably the biggest con if you’re looking for a device that will provide a day worth of use.

Compared to the more widely known Google Nexus 7, the Pipo U1 has components that won’t drive consumers to think twice when considering a high-end 7-incher.  Naturally, if people want the best in its class, then the Tegra 3-powered Nexus 7 will be the device of choice.  However, in terms of bang for your bucks, the Pipo U1 won’t disappoint, and a big plus is that people will be able to expand upon the already allotted 16GB of internal storage with a microSD card (no microSD expansion with Nexus 7).
