We have received a few queries asking for details on the Arnova SoundPad that was discovered a few days ago. We had a closer look at our favorite Chinese sellers websites and found with the MA-107 what seems to be the SoundPad twin brother 🙂
This is the occasion to get some more information about the device specs, see below.
|2013/02/05 update:||The Arnova SoundPad has been added to their website. Apart from a few extra product pictures, nothing really new there, most of the product specs were already known.|
You said Twin brothers ?

If the Arnova SoundPad follows the MA 107 specifications, we could expect these features:

If these specs are confirmed, there is nothing very interesting here at this price, you can easily get a more powerful tablet with a sound dock or external speakers. Selling on Amazon Germany at €149, that is ~ $200, the MA-107 wholesale price is offered at $136.40 (before shipping) and down to $122.11 for purchases in bulk (40 units or more).
