The Chuwi Hi10 Ultrabook Tablet PC has been on the market for a while, and Gearbest is currently offering it at a pretty hefty discount for a final price of 181$.
It’s another 10.1 incher featuring the Z8300 Cherry Trail Quad-Core CPU, with 4GB of DDR3L memory and 64GB eMMC flash storage. This combination is somewhat standard in the 200-300$ price range for chinese tablets, and is thankfully a decent enough feature set.
In this 10.1 frame, the Hi10 features a 1920×1200 IPS display, which is likely to look great (and long live 16:10).
Windows 10 Mobile may not be having much success in phones, but it’s definitely hitting Chinese tablets in a big way, and considering how these devices tend to sell like hotcakes and how their specifications are quite generic, we’re happy these devices will probably have their software stay well updated as time passes.
If for some reason you despise Windows 10, the device also features Android 5.1, although why you’d want to be using an old OS which is unlikely to ever get updated, we’ll never know.
The battery is rated for 6500mAh, which is decent enough for a tablet of this size. Hopefully it’ll be able to last about 5-8 hours of Wi-Fi use. There’s also a Bluetooth 4.0 radio.
Connectivity is pretty nice, with an HDMI output, 2 USB ports (one of which is USB 3.0) and one micro-USB, along with a TF slot. There also seems to be a nifty little optional keyboard, though as is usually the problem with these Chinese products, actually purchasing it might be tricky – we’ll try and get in touch with Gearbest and find out if they can provide them and at what cost.
Along with the Cube iWork 10 and the Teclast X89, this is a very accessible tablet computer with some serious specs for the price. We’re hoping we’ll be able to provide some actually reviews on similarly interesting products.
