Many people were frustrated with the MeegoPad T01, with its thermal issues and a “trial” Windows installation most likely contributing to the product’s poor reputation. It does seem that MeegoPad have learned from their mistakes.
The main changes seem to be the use of a genuine Windows licence, addition of a 3.5mm audio port, additional cooling vents and the inclusion of two full size USB ports instead of the one on its predecessor.
It also looks like MeegoPad were heavily “inspired” by the design of the Intel Compute Stick as the two now look remarkably similar.
The MeegoPad T02 is anticipated to ship towards the end of May.
If you’re interested in getting the MeegoPad T02 for yourself, you can purchase it from GearBest and AliExpress for around $110. There is also a version without Windows for around $85.

Is the Ubuntu version the Chinese disto kylin? Dual boot seems to use up a lot of memory in all these devices with windows using the lions share. As for been a copy cat to Intel? If you can’t beat them join them!
I’m not sure but from what I’ve seen from these manufacturers, it tends to be standard Ubuntu.
I agree with you about the tight squeeze of dual boot on a 32Gb device. I think 64Gb is really the lowest you should have for 2 OS
But without hardware acceleration the Ubuntu os is pretty useless for video playback.
Yep, I have to agree. Whoever solves that will have many fans!
I am actually quiet disappointed in Meegopad copying the design. The have everything to become a world-class brand, but somehow they don’t get it.
I have to agree. I always commend companies that come up with their own designs – whether their own cases or their own UI.
