The CD-R King Tablet PC: Fastpad

Yep, that's the new tablet PC being offered by CD-R King: The CD-R King Faspad!

Faspad is based on the S5PV210 SoC platform offered by Samsung, which is powered by a 1GHz Cortex-A8 ARM processor, PowerVR SGX540 graphics processor and 512MiB of RAM. It also got a capacitive screen, the same type of touchscreen technology used in iPhone, iPad, iTouch, Galaxy Tab.

We all know that CD-R King products are *mostly* re-badged items from China. They get items from these Chinese OEMs, and so after conducting a few Google searches... bingo! FastPad is the same as Haipad M7-M! Specs and physical aspects: Curved back, I/O ports placement, speaker position and even its face. No doubt, CD-R King Fastpad is a re-badged Haipad M7-M!

CD-R King FastPad is currently priced at Php8,800.00, cheaper than Haipad M7-M's quoted prices at (which are priced USD200 on the average including shipping fees). FastPad's lower price could be attributed to the absence of Bluetooth (unless they forgot to include this in the specs) and the lower internal storage capacity (4GB vs. 8GB). That means, Fastpad is trimmed (feature) Haipad M7-M.

It is listed to have Android 2.2 (Froyo) but Haipad already released an Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) firmware for their M7-M. I just don't know if it would be compatible with Fastpad, considering that M7-M has larger internal storage capacity (as mentioned above).

I don't have first-hand experience with Fastpad, but knowing that it has the same platform as Haipad M7 (aka Herotab C8, Dropad A8) which my hands were able to get hold of, it should be a good tablet.

The 3 months warranty could be a deal breaker but I would always consider this than buying online.

Just my thoughts....
