Rockchip RK3188 Tablets: Kata Fishtab 3 versus Pipo Ultra-U8

Pipo Ultra-U8 versus Kata Fishtab 3

Pipo and Kata are both Original Design Manufacturers (ODM) with manufacturing plants based in China. Recently I acquired the Kata Fishtab 3 which uses Rockchip RK3188 processor. I searched the web and found out that the Pipo Ultra-U8 has the same chipset.

I am not really familiar with these two brands as well as the RK3188 chipset, but if I will just based my judgement on the above specifications I can say that the U8 has the advantages.

  1. T3 = may physical volume rocker, good kung may CWM navigation. Kaso walang custom rom support.

    U8 = No physical volume rocker. Yun lang prob sa knya. May international custom rom support
