MDP 820 Tablet Is A Shame

Intrinsyc is a tech company working on embedded system and IoT devices located in Canada. It released a tablet named MDP 820 (also a smartphone) that has Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor embedded. They claimed the tablet was

the first commercially available Android development tablet with 802.11ad Wi-Fi

This claim is so strong that I couldn't resist getting one as I got a router that supports 802.11ad network. I was so looking forward to it, and yet I did not notice in all webpages (here, here, and here) that list this tablet as "available for purchase", one page states below the figures in the middle of the page, without any remarks, that:

Not every feature listed here may be supported by the current version of software.

Ha, what are in the odds that "not every feature" means "we do not support 802.11ad in software and yet this tablet is our first tablet that supports 802.11ad network."

It's true that snapdragon 820 enables faster computations and blah blah blah, but the sale point of this tablet, the most important feature, is dismissed, or missing on purpose.

MDP 820 tablet is a joke, a shame, and even a lier, though Intrinsyc puts it under the development platform category.
