Aocos PX102 Humming Bird 2 is a $200 Asus Transformer alternative
The Asus Transformer range really set the bar for convertible Android tablets, but their high prices have kept them out of reach of many gadget lovers. If you can’t justify spending the money on an Asus, take a look at the Aocos PX102 at just $208!
At slightly over $200 (1299 Yuan) you would expect the PX102 to have some major drawbacks, but when looking through the specs and having a good gander at the design all seems surprisingly good!
Like the Asus Transformer tablets, the Aocos PX102 has a 10.1 inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800, dual cameras and a detachable keyboard. The CPU is a 1.6Ghz dual-core Rockchip unit, which is noted for handling 1080 video very well, and there is 1GB RAM plus 16GB of internal memory.
The tablet half of the PX102 measures just 9.6mm and features a single 2.0 USB , Micro USB, HDMI out and a micro SD card reader. The detachable keyboard is rechargeable and connects via Bluetooth.
At $200 there are some obvious cost cutting measures such as the low resolution cameras (front 0.3MP, rear 2MP), lack of built-in 3G and uncertain future support, but if you’re in the market for a bargain this Christmas it could be worth a look.
