Connectivity is unfortunately limited Wi-Fi and External 3G dongle Support. The tablet also supports one USB 3.0 port for high speed file transfer. Furthermore, the tablet also features a mini HDMI port (peripheral for external TV). Other connectivity options are also available, such as Bluetooth 4.0 and USB Host OTG (natively supported).

At the back is a 5.0 megapixel camera with Autofocus, touch focus and video recording support. At front is also a 2.0 megapixel camera. the overall build is made of Glass screen and a sturdy Aluminum shell at the rear. This makes the tablet feel solid and premium despite the budget price. The tablet is powered by a 7800mAh battery which has a running time of up to 7 hours in Frugal usage or up to 5 hours on moderate to heavy usage.

Overall, Pipo has always been a forerunner of cheap and sturdy tablets. The Pipo W3F might as well be another one. The tablet can be a laptop replacement via the Dual Boot support or just be a multimedia device. The tablet offers great features for the price. Although it might not have built in 3G Support. Its currently one of the cheapest 10.1 inch or Full tablet available. Aside from the appealing price, performance is very good and the FHD or 1080p display is a welcome site.

  1. I have one of these and it’s great.

    You’re wrong about no 3G capability – I got mine with a Huawei ultrastick which works plugs in under a removable part of the case and runs under the Windows side – it was something like $20 extra. Voila – 3G with no dongle. And other reviewers said it has amazing reception.

    Also it’s USB 2 not USB 3. Fullsize USB is a major amenity.

    Also the keyboard case with trackpad is *excellent* and only something like $18 – a must-get. It’s a little Windows laptop complete with good keyboard and trackpad and real trackpad buttons, a fast Android tablet with a great display for lounging around, and also acts as a HTPC for me to projector with video out.

    Hook it to your 1080P projector, put in a multi-USB dongle into the USB port, then use those multi ports to connect a Logitech K400r wireless keyboard and a wireless mouse, boot it into Android and you have a lightning-fast Android projector workstation – what a ride !

    Recommend this device… so versatile.
