Thanks to Jareds20 in the Pipo M1 thread for spotting this. I thought it was worth a thread of its own.

It looks like a real contender in the 10.1 inch tablet stakes.
It even has twin front facing speakers like the N101. Actually it was mentioned way back in April in the Charbax video.

Only trouble is it seems a bit scarce.

See the following links.

Yeah looks interesting. The link from the official PIPO site lists only a 4000mah battery though. The aliexpress link seems to show what looks like an OEM window N101 with different specs. Hopefully this gets a proper outing soon and is reviewed on the usual china sites. From what i've read though PIPO build quality seems decent on the whole, perhaps a touch improved over the likes of window and cube. The Acho c909t could have potential too, nice design.

Here is an unboxing of the M3: http://www.hkepc.com...php?tid=1850942
Most of the discussion is a little bit impossible to figure out, even with Google translate. But the images look interesting. Nice that you get a stylus in the box.

Thanks AlienUFO looks very nice from the photos. The display also looks impressive next to the Nexus 7. Wonder when it will be more generally available.

I have really fallen for the m1 and been impressed with PiPos attention to QC. Perhaps this will make a better fit for our store than the poorly qc'd N101 II.

Read the feedback leaved in the aliexpress link given in the first post (link)

THE PRODUCT IS OK BUT THE SELLER WAS NOT FAIR WITH ME. I ORDERED 32 GB , 10.1 INCHES BUT WAS SUPPLIED WITH 16 GB, 9.7 INCHES. AVERAGELY, THIS SELLER IS RELIABLE AND I CAN STILL PATRONOSE HIM.


So be carefull.
It seems that 10.1 version is not available yet in aliexpress. I don't see it available from any other seller there.

Yes that is what I am hoping for too Roman. With the Cube MVA displays and N101 issues I am looking for a good and reliable alternative! This might be it.

Here's another link http://www.price.com...ct.php?p=144388
They give it 9.3 out of 10 and list a few merchants who sell it.

I am waiting for it to appear in any of the big stores...Pandawill, Eternal etc.
Actually, I will contact them and ask when/if they are getting it.

Spec looks good apart from the battery! Hopefully that's a typo, I recall the Cube battery spec varying widely from site to site.

If the M3 matches your opinion of the M1 when you get a chance to get your hands on it(thank you for your review in another thread of the M1 BTW :good:); really hope you do come to stock it in the UK 'branch' of TNT soon.

+1 vote for TNT PIPO M3!

I had a reply from Elijah who say it is in stock, doh. They were clearly talking about the M1.

I also had a reply from Eternal who came up with the much more plausible :

For now we have not get any news that the M3 will release, we will pay close attention to it. For now we also have many new models available now, wish some units can get your attention. Regards, Antata

Hi Roman,

Yes I have read about your dealings with Elijah; shocking! :o

TBH if a good alternative 10.1 inch tablet doesn't come along soon I will probably settle for a 9.7 inch one, the Pipo Max M1.
It sounds great and with your Top Notch firmware even better :good:

I am a big fan of the M1. I like the N90 II a lot as well, however the better build on the M1 and consistent quality I have gotten from PiPo thus far have won me over. The N90 II I will say has a brighter screen and I need to do WiFi comparison between the two because I do suspect the N90 II has much better range. I couldn't believe how far out in the parking lot I was from a little coffee shop here with the N90 II the other day and I still had a working signal. (I would guess I was about 100 feet away, in my car!). It was slower than when I was in the shop but I was still able to use google voice command to pull up and load a map and directions. I want to try the same with the PiPo M1 to see how it goes.

Regards,

Roman

Most tablets coming out these days seem to list the internal 3G module as 'optional'.

Thanks Dustin79 for sharing the M3 (P102) detail specs.
Just wonder about the low battery capacity (4000mAh ??) and the thickness, 13mm is quite thick isn't it ?

Thanks for the tablet details. I have emailed them about the battery as well although I suspect it's shown as 4000 maH at 7.4v which could equate to 8000maH at 3.7v.

13 mm does seem quite chunky, let's hope it's an error.

We have 3300mAh @7.4v in the aoson, and it is pretty good. I guess 4000mAh @7.4v = 8000mAh @3.7v in layman terms.

That would be my guess as well.

13 mm is very thick. That might actually be the packaging dimension. Pipo uses uber thin boxes.
