Overclockers UK Ultima 10.1″ IPS Android 4.1 Tablet Review
Peter Donnell / 10 months ago
Today we have something a little different in the eTeknix office, an Android tablet. While these aren’t exactly new to us, this isn’t my first nor likely my last tablet, it is however an interesting change of pace given I’m normally focusing on our chassis, peripheral and game reviews. However we at eTeknix would be crazy to ignore the mobile market and these day it can be relatively inexpensive to obtain a powerful and highly portable device that can meet many needs, from gaming to general productivity.
The tablet we are looking at today comes from OcUK, the £175.99 (at time of writing) Ultima 10.1″ IPS tablet. Which may not be particularly cheap but for a device with a display of this size its somewhat of a bargain. Lets take a quick look at the specifications and see what the Ultima has hiding behind that impressive screen real estate.
- 260mm x 170mm x 11mm
- 608 grams
- RK3066 ARM Cortex A9 1.60GHz Dual-Core CPU
- Quad Core Mali 400 3D GPU
- 10.1″ IPS 16:9 with 1280 x 800 LED Display
- Android Jellybean 4. /w Playstore
- 1GB DDR3 RAM
- 8GB NAND Flash (upgradable to 32GB /w SD Card)
- Bluetooth 4.0
- G Sensor
- Wifi: IEEE 802.11b/g/n 2.40GHz
- 10 Point Capacitive Screen
- Mini-HDMI /w 1080p output support
- 0.3MP front camera, 2.0MP rear camera
- 5000maH @3.7v battery
- 1 yr Warranty
The most notable features on that list are the A9 Dual Core CPU @ 1.6Ghz and the Quad Core ARM Mali 400 MP GPU, a perfect combination to push some solid graphics to that 1280 x 800 IPS display. I’m not going to waffle on any more about the benefits of a tablet, what one is or anything like that as I’m pretty sure were all familiar with touch interface mobile devices these days, so lets get right to the good stuff and see just what the Ultima has to offer.
