AC Ryan Tab 9.7

I have to admit… I’m a big fan of the AC Ryan Tab 7!

The Tab 7 almost had everything I needed from a 7inch Tablet… Only missing features were Bluetooth and GPS.

I was hoping for future updates (to Jelly Bean) and accessories (like a GPS Dongle or a Keyboard Dock) but the next Tablet related news I saw from AC Ryan was the Tab 9.7!

On top is a physical return button and physical volume controls.

Physical return button may sound strange for those familiar with Ice Cream Sandwich tablets, its also confusing for first time users of the Tab 9.7 since its easily mistaken for the power button. Physical volume controls were also emphasized since the Tab 9.7 has capacitive volume controls!

Holding the AC Ryan Tab 9.7 feels cheap and plasticky and its hard to differentiate it from other Chinese tablets.

Performance was ok, but I guess most unbranded ICS running Android Tablet provides the same experience.

Its really hard to sell the AC Ryan Tab 9.7, its priced SGD 339.00 and right beside it (in Challenger, Vivo City) is the Acer Iconia Tab A200 which is only SGD 30.00 more expensive.

At SGD 229.00, the Tab 7 is great! Maybe another model with a bigger internal memory, better processor, GPS, Bluetooth and 3G is a better step than introducing a bigger tablet.

    There is no test data to verify your comments. A video comparison of it working next to a comparable Android Tablet would even be useful. As far as I can tell by the specs, it is a mirror image of several comparable tablets on the market. It shouldn’t be difficult to find something to compare it to… IE Kindle Fire HD 8.7

      I do agree. There is a lack of information for AC Ryan Tablet 9.7 esp when doing comparison with other tablet.

    I’ve had very limited time with the AC Ryan 9.7 as I honestly cannot recommend anyone to buy it over the Acer A200.

    As I mentioned, the A200 is only SGD 30.00 more expensive but it has a better build and it uses a Tegra 2 processor.

    I love the AC Ryan 7… I might consider it as a second tablet. But the AC Ryan 9.7 looks like an overpriced unbranded Chinese made tablet.
