That looks to be a bit optimistic, given shipping and buying charges and the $40 price tag now looks to be more a wholesale price.
The Sunnycube V7 features VIA’s 1.5GHz dual-core WM8880 SoC processor powering a 7-inch panel with basic 480×800-pixel resolution. The CPU is based on ARM’s Cortex A9 design and its running Android 4.2 operating system out of the box.
It comes with a basic 512MB of RAM and 4GB of flash, but that flash count can be expanded to 32GB via the MicroSD card slot.
There are two cameras but they’re both VGA resolution only. Still, you get Wi-Fi networking – 802.11b/g standards – but no Bluetooth at this price. A nice little extra touch is the HDMI output that supports 1080p video playback (thanks to that dual-core processor).
Built-in, there’s a 2000mAh Lithium-ion battery, said to be good for ’2-3 hours’.
Given that most 7-inch budget tablets on eBay at this price are still single-core 1GHz Allwinner A13 models, getting a dual-core tablet for under $60 – including shipping – is a pretty low-cost way to jump into Android without having to spend a small fortune.
We’ve got full specs at the jump.
