No RAM specs, that could be a not buy depending on whats inside and what quad core processor it uses, to vague to gauge a real comparison to the somewhat knowledgeable consumer.

I read somewhere it was

M7= 1.6GHz dual-core A9 processor with 1GB of RAM

m10= quad-core Cortex A7 CPU with 1GB of RAM

You mean, the same almost every tablet, laptop and desktop makers do: Put the logo of their brand in the external case of anything built by little chinese children in Foxconn factories.

BTW, am I the only one or that screen layout shown in the picture resembles to Microsoft's Metro quite a bit?
