The Chuwi Hi10 Is Crowd Funded?

I spotted this on JD.com, in an interesting turn of events it would seem Chuwi has the Hi10 on some type of Kickstarter, crowd fundraiser in China. Specs still talk of an Atom X5 Z8300 with 4GB of Ram. Did Chuwi find a way to get the Z8300 to run 4GB? Intel’s Ark states it will only support 2GB max. And they show three USB ports. 2 x USB 2.0 and one microUSB, like the Chuwi Vi10. So they are...[Read More]

Details on the Onda oBook 11

Details have emerged via an Ali Express listing that the Onda oBook11 is not powered by a Core M, but a Cherry Trail Atom X5 Z8300, 2GB of Ram and a 32GB eMMC drive. It looks like a clone of a Yoga book, with a keyboard that can flip 360 degrees behind the screen turning it into a tablet or it can be used in a presentation mode to support itself upside down like a tent. These photoshopped images s...[Read More]

Teclast X98 Plus Announced, Another Cherry Trail 9.7″ Tablet

Teclast has announced on Weibo yet another 9.7″ Retina tablet. It features the slightly slower X5 Z8300 Cherry Trail than the X98 Pro. No other specs were confirmed, OS or price but it does have the new Teclast Air III unibody casing. My rough guess is it will cost around $170-$180 USD, if the X98 Pro is now $219 it’s got to be much less. I assume it will have 2GB of RAM and a 32GB/64G...[Read More]

New 8″ Cherry Trail Tablets, the Teclast X80 Pro and X80 Plus

Teclast have updated their X80 line, and plan to release the X80 Plus and X80 Pro version. Both models are a successor to the Teclast X80h and both will be powered with the Atom X5 Z8300, 2GB of Ram and a 32GB eMMC. The difference between the Pro and Plus is the screen, much like the Chuwi Vi8 and Hi8. The plus has an 1280 x 800 IPS panel and the pro an 1920 x 1200 panel. Which I assume will be th...[Read More]

ASUS Transformer Book T100HA Review (Video)

Recently I picked up a Transformer Book T100HA, it’s got the same Atom X5 Z8500 and 4GB as the X98 Pro. So I thought it would be a good comparison. Often I post reviews and other interesting things just on the YouTube channel. Like this Asus Transformer Book T100HA review video below. While issues with the touch screen have forced me to have to return this unit. I’m not bothering with ...[Read More]

Teclast X2 Pro Review Now Online

If you haven’t seen it already my Teclast X2 Pro Core M review is now online. For those looking for a larger Cube i7 Stylus might want to give this one a look. A very decent tablet, just with the normal bad points these cheaper tablets have, for example, it lacks a fully laminated display, has one keyboard stand position only. But the keyboard is great and its performance is top notch. Have ...[Read More]

Up next for review: The Asus T100HA 2 in 1 Cherry Trail

While I’m finishing up my Teclast X2 Core M review, I have the Asus T100HA Cherry trail arriving today hopefully. It’s the 2 in 1 tablet line that pretty much started it all for me as I was hooked when I got the first Z3740 T100TA back in 2013. I’m interested to see how the Asus T100HA stacks up against the Chinese Z8500 powered Teclast X98 Pro recently reviewed. And to see if it...[Read More]
