PiPO X9 Dual OS PC Hybrid Features 8.9 Inch Touchscreen

PiPO have unveiled the PiPO X9, a upgraded version of the popular PiPO X8. Upgrades to the PiPO X9 include a larger and higher resolution 8.9 inch 1920 x 1200 pixel touchscreen and a dual OS configuration booting both Windows 10 and Android 4.4.

I have to admit that I’m impressed by the “higher than Full HD” touchscreen, which should look really nice at 8.9 inches.

The rest of the specifications are essentially identical to those of the PiPO X8.

When I reviewed the PiPO X8, I thought the PiPO X8 was an interesting device with lots of potential. I’ve been using mine as a jukebox at parties which is awesome.

I’m hoping PiPO have improved their passive cooling, as some people complained about overheating on the PiPO X8. However, I didn’t experience any during my tests.

The PiPO X9 can be purchased from GearBest and GeekBuying for around $130.

64GB PiPO X8 Windows PC with Touchscreen Now Available

When I reviewed the PiPO X8, I found it to be an solid oddity. Whilst I had initially had some skepticism regarding the integrated touchscreen, I can thankfully say it’s actually pretty handy. I’ve been able to the my PiPO X8 to good use as a jukebox, allowing guests to pick their own tracks.

Now, PiPO have improved the device. They’ve revealed a 64Gb variant of the PiPO X8 which is now available for purchase. The rest of the technical specifications are the same however.

Firstly, it is capable of dual booting Windows 8.1 and Android 4.4, which is a massive boon for power users like myself.

Secondly, it also comes in a new gold enclosure, which is either a pro or a con depending on your personal tastes.

I’m not sure if there are any internal changes over the PiPO X7 but as soon as I know more, I’ll post an update.

PiPO-X7S-Product-01

Our PiPO X7 review was favorable, with the device doing an excellent job running Windows and various common applications. The Intel Z3736F is a solid performed processor and the device should be more than capable of playing movies, web browsing and casual games as we saw when testing it’s predecessor, so I expect we’ll see similar performance here.
