RK3288: Pipo P8 Android tablet

Dec 28, 2014

Pipo P8 Android tablet shows that the number of cores is not all and its quad-core RK3288 CPU has enough guts to stand the octa-core competition.

The A118 (or B40 or AE-CC30 or even SG9665GM) could well be the final answer to the popular DashCamTalk question "Where did you mount the camera?"

It is built on the Novatek NTK96650 chipset and 3.5MP Aptina AR0330 sensor like the G50 reviewed earlier but introduces a new compact design that could make all the difference.

The Dericam H502W was a huge success due to the exceptional follow up of its developer, Maygion.

The new H503W has more potential to brings up the missing features of its predecessor, like the preset positions.

With a design inspired from the Dericam H502W, the Sunluxy SL-C702 seems to offer a similar set of features, but it's worth a closer look...

Some owners of the iFive Mini 3GS tablet may have experimented troubles when waking up the device or even screen going black randomly while in use...but it turns out that the tablet itself is not to blame ...

The G50 (BL850) is a variant of the G55W reviewed here earlier, trading the IR lights and WIFI for better chipset (NTK 96650) and sensor (AR0330).

The G55W (aka LD500) is a cute little HD cam dash with Wi-Fi connectivity for an affordable price. It deserves a closer look...

It's time to replace some bulky low-res IP Cameras with sleek HD models.
The two models reviewed here cost around 50€ and balance the lack of PTZ with a wider focal, a compact casing and a complete set of features.





In one corner, the Amovision AM-Q610-WIFI, based on the excellent Hi3510 chipset reviewed ealier.

On the other side, the Wansview NCM623W. It has a familiar look because it reuses the casing of a widespread VGA model, but here we've got a 720P version, with the very same feature as his opponent.

For roughly 70€, the AM-Q6320-WIFI is the cheapest Wireless and HD outdoor camera I could find, and yet, it does the job...

Many new SoC will emerge during 2014 to replace the popular RK3188 and A31 (the most anticipated being probably the RK3288).

In the meantime, I decided to try the first tablet equipped with the quad-core ATM7039 from Actions: the Ainol Novo 9 Spark II (aka Firewire II)
