Jumper is a tablet brand that almost always has the cheapest version of some form of tablet clone, and now Jumper looks like it will lower the entry price on 11.6-inch Surface type of 2-in-1’s with Intel Celeron processor and 6GB of RAM, as Jumper will launch such a device called Jumper EZpad 6 Plus for $279 on January 7, available from Everbuying and Gearbest.
It comes with its share of pros and cons though. So for me this tablet is mostly interesting beause of the price pressure it places on many other brands with similar models.
For the price, the pros are the quad-core Intel Celeron N3450 processor, the 6GB of DDR3L RAM, and the 11.6-inch screen with a kickstand on the back and a Full HD resolution display at 1920 x 1080 on the front. The storage capacity is 64GB, which is the minimum you need on a Windows tablet today, and perfectly okay.
And the keyboard is include in the price, so that places the Jumper EZpad 6 Plus far below the competition in terms of price.
It also has a full-size USB 3.0 port, a DC power port, a micro-USB port, mico-HDMI port, and 3.5mm audio combo jack.
The cons are just regular single-band Wi-Fi with 802.11 a/b/g/n although with a good router and bandwidth from ISP that might still suffice on a daily basis if the range is acceptable.
The regulars such as camera and battery are also on the low side, with a 3500 mAh battery, and just a 2MP front camera. And it is on the thick side too at 10mm.
So it’s interesting based on the price, but it’s not all there as an all occasions piece. Then again the slogan for Jumper is “Simplified high technology” and we can’t totally disagree with them there either.
