Teclast’s latest tablet is about the size of an Apple iPad, but it’s cheaper than most current iPads, runs Windows 10 software, and features an Intel Atom Cherry Trail processor.
I haven’t had a chance to test this tablet yet, but on paper it sounds almost too good to be true. Here’s a run-down of the specs:
- 9.7 inch, 2048 x 1536 pixel IPS display
- Intel Atom X5-Z8500 quad-core Cherry Trail processor
- 4GB RAM
- 64GB eMMC storage
- microSD card slot for up to 64GB of removable storage
- 802.11b/g/n WiFi
- Bluetooth 4.0
- 5MP rear and 2MP front cameras
- Micro HDMI port
- Stereo speakers
- 8,000 mAh battery
The tablet measures 9.4″ x 6.7″ x 0.3″ and weighs about 1.1 pounds.
Teclast is a Chinese device maker that’s been offering low-cost Android tablets for a few years, and inexpensive Windows models since 2014. This will be one of the company’s first to ship with Windows 10 as well as one of the first to feature an Intel Cherry Trail processor.
While those features alone wouldn’t necessarily drive up the price, the tablet also has a high-resolution display and more RAM and flash storage than most Windows tablets in this price range. So I’m kind of surprised to see this thing priced under $300.
Unlike some Chinese device makers, I haven’t heard any stories about Teclast shipping products with unlicensed versions of Windows.
