Jingling has confirmed the price of the JingPad A1, the 2-in-1 convertible running a Linux-based tablet OS. The JingPad A1 features a Unisoc Tiger T7510 SoC though, so the tablet may offer limited performance.

In March, Jingling revealed the JingPad A1, the first 2-in-1 convertible running a tablet OS based on Linux (JingOS). At the time, it was unclear how much the JingPad A1 would cost, but Jingling has now confirmed that the tablet will start at US$549.

There is a caveat though, as this is Indiegogo pricing. The campaign will commence on June 15, but we expect US$549 to be the tablet's early-bird price. The JingPad A1 runs on a Unisoc Tiger T7510, a relatively unknown SoC that has a PowerVR GM9446 GPU and two ARM CPU core clusters: four Cortex-A75 cores and four Cortex-A55 cores.

The JingPad A1 also has 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage and an 8,000 mAh battery, along with an 11-inch AMOLED display running at 2,368 x 1,728 pixels. In our opinion, US$549 is expensive for an underpowered SoC, regardless of how well-built the JingPad A1 is. The tablet does fill a niche though, and has already received some interest from prospective beta testers.
