RAmos W7 Android MID ships, gets played with in China

May 28, 2010

It's been a long time since we first saw the RAmos W7 Android MID, but the distinctive chromed device is finally shipping.  Based around a 4.8-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen, a 600MHz Rockchip RK2808 processor and 8GB of storage, the really surprising part is the price: the W7 is apparently on sale in China for just 999 Yuan ($146).

For that it seems unlikely you'll get the integrated 3G first mentioned when the W7 was announced, but even with just WiFi and Bluetooth we're impressed.  Up to 720p HD video is supported, though you'll have to make do with Android 1.5 rather than anything newer.

At least one person has received their RAmos W7 and is sharing some first impressions in the Chinese Mumumusic forum.  No word on when - or indeed if - it'll go on sale outside of China, but the cheap Android MID market certainly does seem to be exploding.
