LiveFan F3S-X Chinese dual-boot Windows and Android tablet

March 10, 2015 by Tom in Android Tablet, Tablet, Windows Tablet with No Comments.

The latest dual-boot Chinese tablet of note is the LiveFan F3S-X, which runs Android 4.4.4 and Windows 8.1. The tablet has a 10.1-inch IPS display at 1,920 x 1,200 pixels. It runs on an Intel Z3736F quad-core processor and comes with 2GB of RAM and a generous 64GB of storage. The cameras aren't much to write home about, at just 2MP front and back, but everyone has phones for that these days anyway (rather than cameras, which is still pretty odd). It supports WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, 3G and 4G connectivity and it also packs a big 8,000mAh battery. It also allows USB connection via its USB 2.0 port, as well as the microUSB port for charging. All considered, the $270 price tag isn't too bad at all. Via tablet-news

Huawei has announced two mid-price MediaPad T1 Android tablet variations, both of which will feature Android 4.4 skinned with the custom EMUI user interface, which is closer to iOS in feel.

So while they're quite entry level stats, the 4G LTE pulls it above competitors in the 250 euro range. The new T1s will be out late March. Via mobilegeeks

Fujitsu Stylistic V535 “semi-rugged” 8-inch Windows tablet

March 6, 2015 by Tom in Fujitsu, Tablet, Windows Tablet with No Comments.

Following the waterproof Fujitsu Arrows Tab F-03G Android tablet, Fujitsu adds a rugged edge to Windows tablets with the 8.3-inch Fujitsu Stylistic V535. The V535 takes more of a 'semi-rugged' style, which aims for a hardy build but with better looks and portability than the fully rugged slates that look like they're built only for construction sites. The Windows 8.1 tablet is dust-proof and water-resistant, and can also take the knocks you'd expect from a tough tab (Fujitsu says a six-foot drop'll be fine). It also has interchangeable shells, including a Smart Card Smart Shell, which beefs up security with hardware-based authentication. It weighs 540g and comes with optional 4G and GPS, as well as NFC. There is also a cradle attachment for display and mouse connectivity.

Archos to launch 256GB Fusion Storage Magnus tablets

March 4, 2015 by Tom in Android Tablet, Archos, Hardware News, Tablet with No Comments.

Archos will launch its Magnus series tablets later this year and they'll incorporate its new "Fusion Storage" memory. Archos' Fusion Storage virtually combines internal storage and microSD expansion, with the idea being that Android will treat it all as internal memory. Of course, with the speed of microSD transfers being slower than internal memory, Archos have some questions to answer about how this will be a smooth system. This'll appear in due course, but for now they've announced the first run of tablets that'll feature Fusion Storage. The 101 Magnus will feature 64GB of storage, while no doubt all eyes will be on the 94 Magnus, which will feature 256GB Fusion Storage. They'll run on MediaTek or Rockchip processors and will cost between £129-£249 (US$198-380). For full
