Meet the CloudPad 800W!
In today’s unboxing, we’ll be taking a look at the CloudPad 800w, the local firm’s latest tablet offering. Much like the Starmobile Engage 9i, the CloudPad 800W uses the same Intel Atom Z2580 processor, running at 2.0GHz. The CloudPad 800W is aimed at the same market as the Engage 9i, so it’ll interesting to see how this tablet stacks up to the competition.

Packaging and contents
The CloudPad 800W comes in Cloudfone’s typical yellow packaging, with the picture of the device in front. Opening the box, you’re greeted with the actual tablet, protected by white plastic.
Along with the tablet you also get your standard fare of accessories – headphones, a USB cable and a charger.
Initial impressions: Good looking tablet, backed up by solid specs
There’s no denying that the CloudPad 800W looks a lot like Apple’s own offering. It’s typical for local brands to have tablets that have a strong resemblance to Apple’s iPad, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing, to be honest. All the buttons – volume rocker, unlock/power are located on the left side. The microSD slot is located on the left side as well. On the top lies the 3.5mm jack and the microUSB port.
Unlike the iPad, there is no physical button on the front of the 7.85-inch display, with the CloudPad opting with on-screen navigation keys. Curiously, there’s also keys for volume control along with the navigation keys, with both evenly divided on the bottom of the CloudPad 800W.
Like we mentioned before, we’ve seen the processor combination of the CloudPad 800W before in the Starmobile Engage 9i, and from our experience, the Intel Atom Z2580 is capable of delivering strong performance. That’s still true with the CloudPad 800W – with AnTuTu, it delivered 21,977 points, higher than the 19,766 of the Engage 9i. Then again, the Engage 9i has a full HD display, compared to the CloudPad’s XGA. The CloudPad 800W did not exhibit any lag while we were using it.
That’s it for the CloudPad 800W unboxing. We’ll be putting it through our regular tests and will write the review in a couple of days. Stay tuned.
