Cheap Android Tablet PC From Taiwan WM8850-mid

WM8850-mid Tablet PC Packing Box

WM8850-mid Android Tablet PC

On 1 September 2012, I bought an Android Tablet in the group of lower-priced models around RM290 each or (94 US Dolar). The purpose of the purchase was to try to use Android and my mission in learning programming in Android.

Packing box did not state specific model. Just described Tablet PC specifications and prints "Made In Taiwan". Based on a Google search for "Model Number" WM8850-mid Spec it brings me to the following: -
  • Model: VIA WonderMedia WM8850
  • CPU: ARM Cortex-A9
  • Android version: 4.0.3 ICS (ver1.0.2-20120625.111656)
  • Kernel version: 3.0.8

I found on the manufacturer's website is no longer producing the SOC but SOC updates associated with ARM Cortex-A9 CPU is following
My advice is to get the latest Tablet PC with model number "WM8950", no longer looking for WM8850-mid.

I have install "Go Launcher EX" from Google Play to overcome interface inaccurate and insensitive when pressed and selected.

I will update more on this Android tablet in this blog.
