The upcoming Pipo U8T Windows 10 Mobile tablet uses ARM-based Rockchip chip

CES 2016 is officially over, but there are still some bits of news that are being reported from the trade show. One of them shows an upcoming Windows 10 Mobile tablet that uses the ARM-based Rockchip RK3288W SoC, rather than the typical chip from Qualcomm, states the Pipo U8T will have a 7.85-inch display with a1024 x768 resolution, along with 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage. The story also says the Rockchip processor will be used on a Best Buy branded tablet, with 1GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. There's no word on a release date or prices for these tablets.

The Rockchip RK3288W processor itself can support between 1 to 4GB of RAM along with displays that range from 6 to 9 inches. It remains to be seen if the chip will find more device OEMs that will use it in their Windows 10 Mobile tablets.
