Onda’s so called dual boot breakthrough “Surprise surprise” is really nothing but some fake sped up boot switching video and a new firmware that allows each OS to access the other. Nothing I would consider breakthrough, just a bunch of marketing hype. The new firmware files are here if your interested: http://onda.cn/Tablet/ProductInfo.aspx?ProductId=361 And the better and faster...[Read More]
Update: 14th June, I’ve added the latest Dual OS PiPo W3F files for download. Please use those ones as they have the latest drivers and bug fixes etc. If your having issues with the Android rom, you could try updating with the included files. Since the download files are rather huge, please only download this if your going to use it to help save our bandwidth. If you’re able to mirror ...[Read More]
Here a few videos of the PiPo W3F I currently have to review. Here is a short video testing the USB port speed, eMMC drive speed and the microsd card slot speed. Unfortunately it’s only a usb 2.0 port, but there are two, one full sized and the other micro. It would seem that some of the sellers on Ali Express are getting mixed up with the W3 that has usb 3.0. Some gaming on the PiPo W3F, as ...[Read More]
Our Cube i6 Air 3G Dual Boot review is now up. Was Cube’s attempt at a better dual boot tablet enough to best the Teclast X98 Air 3G and the Onda v919 Air 3G? Find out in the full detailed review here: http://techtablets.com/cube-i6-dual-os/review-2/
Intel just recently show cased the latest Atom x5 Z8500 soc in a reference Tablet. So what can we expect in the next gen of Chinese tablets from the likes of Cube, PiPo, Onda and Teclast? Looking over the Intel Z8000 series Ark and Intel Z8000 series data sheets, you can see that they are step up in terms of power, the Z8500 can take up to 8GB of ram and dual channel. Think of it as the Z3795 in t...[Read More]
I get a lot of questions on YouTube, which is these two dual boot tablets is the best? Cube i6 or the Teclast X98 Air 3G? Well I made this comparison video to hopefully help people in their choice. And I tried to cover everything apart from gaming as they are both about the same. Okay so 2.16 Ghz Vs 1.8Ghz battle on these atoms, Z3736F Vs Z3735F there is really nothing between them in the real wor...[Read More]
Had some time now with the Cube i6 Dual boot, here’s a couple of videos showing the Android Rom, Windows 8.1 and the OS switching from Windows to Android and back. As you can see this switching set up from within the OS is much faster than Teclast’s approach to dual os swtiching with their boot selector menu.
Taken a little longer than I had hoped, but I wanted to cover all aspects of this little tablet.So the Teclast X80h Dual Boot review is now finally online. A solid little tablet with some of the best benchmark scores seen yet from a Bay Trail Z35XX soc. If your in the market for a dual boot and don’t like the 9’7″ offerings this one is worth a look as well as the Chuwi Vi8 which ...[Read More]
On PiPo’s weibo (28th Feb), a new tablet from them, featuring a 2560 x 1600 10’1 screen with 4GB of ram, a 64GB eMMC and a Core M CPU. What more, it has a USB 3.0 port (No mention if it’s full sized) and a keyboard dock, which looks to be the same dock from the PiPo W3/W3F. Interesting, seems all the top Chinese tablet companies are now jumping onto the Core M’s and I hope ...[Read More]
I’ve had a good couple of weeks using the Onda V919 Air 3G Dual OS and have just finished up the review for this Chinese Air clone. Chek out the review here. It’s a solid tablet, just let down by a few points. Worth a read if you are looking for a retina display dual boot tablet.
I finally got the courage to walk into an Apple Store and pick up an iPad Air. It’s been a long time since I’ve had an Apple product, I like their hardware, but I HATE thier iTunes software, lack of drag and drop and I still remember how it missed up my music collection and lagged up my whole computer back when I had a iPhone 3G all those years ago. So I have it only for comparison pur...[Read More]
We now have the Onda V919 Air 3G and it’s under going it’s review process. Here is the unboxing video: So far the first impressions of the tablet are: It’s the closest Air clone to date in terms of looks No GPS is onboard Captive home button is a nice addition Lack of HDMI is puzzling, it should have it as the competitors do. Battery life is just O.K compared to other 9.7″ ...[Read More]
