Photo Review Of The N6 – An RK2818 Android Tablet
The Window N6 is an Android tablet that shares many of the same specs as the N9 with the difference lying in the N6 having a resistive touchscreen instead of a capacitive one. The specs include a Rockchip RK2818 processor, a 7-inch resistive touchscreen with a resolution of 800 x 480 and Android 2.1 OS. Like the N9 unboxing, we’re going to keep this review + photo review (we’ve kept the screen protector on this particular model) brief and simple – especially since it’s practically the same tablet. Find out more after the break.
BOX AND TREATS
The N6 comes in the same box and with the same treats as the N9 which includes a screen protector sheet, a nice looking case-sleeve, standard earphones, a USB to MiniUSB cable, a DVD with some relevant files, an instruction manual and a blank receipt slip.
Another of the few difference between the N9 and N6 is that the latter comes with an aluminum silver front bezel (as opposed to black on the N9) and has a single back button on the right panel. The back of the device has the same white plastic shell with a single speaker and its top perimeter includes the power button, the menu button and the escape button. The N6 is also is roughly 376 grams and is W:190mm x H:118mm x D:10mm.
The N6′s user interface, media playback and other features (like accelerometer) perform the same as the N9. As for the files it supports, it should be able to support a wide range of files due to the RK2818 chip – a stalwart in the PMP arena. Media playback, web browsing and other Andriod implementations seem to be this tablet’s cup of tea. However, I would have to say that 3D gaming may not be what this tablet is optimised for. The RK2818 is not a powerhouse and isn’t really meant for the hardcore stuff that the Tegra 2 was made for. It also doesn’t have Flash support – well, not officially anyway – however there ‘s already beta firmwares out for RK2818 devices that enables Flash support, or so we’ve heard.
Its other specs also include 720p video playback and has an accelerometer. The tablet also comes with 256MB of DDR2 RAM, 8GB of internal storage with up to 16GB/32GB of external memory via its MicroSD card slot. It also has 3G Dongle support via USB host.
As for the tablet’s ports, docks and slots: you’ve got USB host, a MiniUSB, an AC charging port, a 3.5mm headphone port and a MicroSD card slot. Nothing out of the ordinary here. The full-sized USB is pretty cool.
Once again, this tablet really does perform and house the same hardware/software specs as the N9. It’s just as stable and well performed and as it’s powered by a processor that we know and like, we can happily say that for a generic tablet, the N6 gives you what you’re looking for (again, minus the advanced 3D gaming).
