    Default advice on new tablet

    My Lepan 2, I probably will not be able to resurrect. I kinda am interested in Windows 8, but am loyal to Android. Dual boot???!!! I tried blue stacks on my PC before, but it was really cumbersome, and not worth it. So I guess I need the best Android.

    It needs to by 9+ inches square... and I would like built in GPS (do they still make them with that?)... But I want to spend less than $500...

    Have you guys heard of Ramos W30HD? JSXL Technology claims Ramos W30HD is a more advanced Tablet PC than Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 because they share the same powerful Samsung Exynos4412 Quad Core Chipset but differ in display:Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 has a 10.1 inch 1280X800 resolution IPS screen,but Ramos W30HD has a 10.1 inch 1900X1200 resolution Retina display. Whatsoever,any idea or recommendation about owning a piece of it? Is it worth buying?
