Bmorn BM-999 Get’s Minor Aesthetic Upgrade

Bmorn BM-999 Get’s Minor Aesthetic Upgrade


You remember Raz’s post about the pre-production BM-999 that Bmorn were kind enough to send him. Well the BM-999 has been officially ‘debuted’ and we are treated to some minor cosmetic changes that really do make this MID stand out. Those changes you can clearly see in the red. This MID (or is it a tablet?) sports an 8.9-inch 1024x600 screen. We could call it either an MID or a tablet, but the high resolution screen really does look grand, seriously throwing the hardware-spec-wise comparable APad out of the ring. The BM-999 is also powered by the Rockchip Rk2808 chip, which means that it doesn’t boast the raw power that we’ve seen in other large pads, but with some firmware customization the device can certainly run Android smoothly. It will, however, only be running Android 1.5.

Other features of the tablet:

  • HDMI/Component/Composite Video out

  • Responsive touchscreen (more so than what comes on the aPad)

  • Viewing stand on the back of the player

  • Accelerometer

  • Front facing 1.3MP camera (was no on the unit i had but will be on final production version)

  • Microsd slot

  • Internal memory of 2GB, 4GB, 8GB and 16GB.

As Raz put it: ‘Overall the Bmorn BM8999 is very promising, the overall quality far exceeds that of the generic RK2808 tablets and the large screen makes it really nice for web browsing and emailing, which is what most people generally have liked from other RK2808 tablets.’
