Another Video Worth Sharing: The ALLDOCUBE X1, 8.4 inch Tablet!

By Tim

This one appears for now at least to be a very decent  8.4 inch tablet, at a reasonable price and with some good specs! This initial unboxing and review comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTech and covers the basics.

The basic specs are listed below:

  • Android 7.1 OS
  • 8.4 inch IPS 2560 x 1600 display
  • Helio X20 deca Core processor
  • Mali – T880 700MHz GPU
  • 64 GB ROM
  • Dual Sim or Sim and microSD card
  • WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac wireless internet
  • 13 mp rear and 8 mp front cameras
  • Battery: 4500mAh,

So the specs are pretty decent, although we should wait on the full review to see how it does on battery life.

All the above being said, make sure to visit Andrew’s YouTube channel and  subscribe to it! Now let us get right to that video!

This device is currently available for around $259 at this site.

That is all for now,

Tim

Huawei Honor MagicBook Debuts: 14 inch Ultrabook and Metallic MacBook Rival

By James A.

Huawei’s Honor sub brand came through this week, by unveiling the Honor MagicBook device. This one is an ultrabook, that comes with a 14 inch screen and an 8th gen Intel Core processor. It’s actually pretty compact at 1.47 kilograms and 15.8 mm in thickness.

Borrowing design cues from the MacBook Air and packing an aluminum body, the device is an affordable device that fits a 14 inch panel on a body made for a 13 incher. That screen is an IPS with Full HD resolution and 45% coverage of the NTSC color space. It also offers 800:1 contrast and 250 nits of brightness.

Honor MagicBook relies on an 8th gen Intel processor, either the Core i5-8250u or the Core i7-8550u, whichever you may pick. There’s 8 GB of RAM here, 256 GB of SSD SATA storage and an NVIDIA MX150 dedicated GPU, with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory.

 

The CPU and GPU both benefit from a singular heat pipe, which sucks the cool air from vents and blows out the hot air. This Honor machine promises up to 12 hours of usage, courtesy of a 57.4 Wh battery, which goes from zero to 70% in just an hour. As far as connectivity is concerned, we get USB Type-C for charging, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, as well as HDMI and audio jack.

Huawei Honor MagicBook uses 4 speakers with Dolby Atmos tech and dual microphones. There’s a fingerprint scanner here, placed to the side of the keyboard and the OS is most likely Windows 10. The starting price is $800 for the Core i5 model and $910 for the Core i7 one.

75% of Kids Between Ages 8 and 11 Use a Tablet Regularly

By Radu Iorga

An alarming study popped up on the web today, showing that more and more kids are using tablets on a daily basis. Turns out that 75% of the kids between ages 8 and 11 use a tablet regularly, according to a recent study. It refers to American kids, by the way.

YouGov Omnibus is the one doing the research into the younger generation, which is dubbed Gen Z right now. Most Americans between the age of 8 to 17 use a tablet regularly in a proportion of 65%. It’s very worrying and bizarre that the percentage grows for smaller individuals. Regular usage declines in older children, as the 15 to 17 year olds only use tablets in a 52% proportion.

Of course they may as well be using the smartphone more often. Among the Gen Z representatives who use a tablet on a regular basis, there’s a pretty high personal ownership. 8 in 10 of the regular users (81%) claim that they have their own tablets, with personal ownership highest among 15 to 17 year olds, at 90%. A quarter of the frequent tablet users (25% int he generation say that they don’t own the slate, but have access via siblings or parents.

In case you’re wondering what they actually do on tablets, it’s games 77% of the times, videos in a 74% proportion and music goes to 56%. Other data shows that 47% of the children prefer to read a physical book versus 21% who prefer to read on a tablet. 27% of them like reading books for real and on tablets equally. I should probably remind everyone that most doctors if not all recommend limiting tablet exposure time for the little ones, in order not to impair their development…

However, I don’t see that happening anytime soon, as often times parents use the tablet as means of babysitting the little ones.

Sony Debuts Small Version of Digital Paper E-Ink Tablet

By Radu Iorga

Sony had an interesting device launched last year, the Sony DPT-RP2 Digital Paper tablet, which was a giant E-Ink machine with an impressive battery life. It was an A4 size device and this week it got smaller, as Sony announced the A5 version of it. The newcomer is aptly named DPT-CP1 and it keeps the bulk of the specs, but changes format.

We’re dealing with a 10.3 inch screen here with a resolution of 1404 x 1872 pixels, at 224 dots per inch. It provides 16 levels of grayscale, 16 GB of storage for PDF files and supports sharing with iOS, Android, Windows and Mac via a companion app. The thickness is crazy, at 5.9 mm and the weight is about half a pound, also not bad at all. Sony promises here about a month of usage with a single charge. That’s the real appeal of the device, making it ideal for student or office use.

This is sadly just a product meant for the Japanese market, so no luck if you want it in Europe or USA. The price is said to be “about $650”, but it may be bigger in fact. At least it’s $100 cheaper than the bigger unit. Availability starts in early June. The other model measured 13.3 inches in diagonal and had a price of around $700 or $750. The big model shipped with a stylus, but that was reported to be laggy by its testers.

Hopefully Sony fixed the bugs and before you get excited, I should mention that the pen doesn’t come with support for pressure sensitivity.

Samsung Gets Patent for Multi Folding Tablet With Physical Keyboard

By Radu Iorga

Samsung received a fresh patent this week, one that involves the usual folding tablet, but this time with a twist: a physical keyboard. We’ve seen multiple foldable devices patented by Samsung, some linked to the Samsung Galaxy X project, others not. But the keyboard is a new approach….

Sammy already has a multi fold patent under its belt ever since September 2016. This time it gets a patent for a next gen device, that folds its keyboard below the screen part, at the back side of one of the folding panels. Samsung has yet to launch a proper foldable device, even though they’ve been exploring the segment ever since the Youm prototype at CES, more than 4 years ago.

To me this looks more like a MID, a small Vaio, or something like that, not exactly a futuristic machine. You could get more use out of a tablet keyboard dock or a case with a keyboard integrated. Having a physical keyboard on a tablet, even if foldable doesn’t make much sense anymore, for ergonomical reasons, battery reasons and also for the sake of a pretty looking design.

It’s true that convertibles and detachables do have keyboards, but they aren’t the pinnacle or ergonomics or aesthetics. A touch keyboard makes more sense for foldables. Also, word through the grapevine says that Samsung is going to adopt a Snapdragon CPU on a future Windows on ARM device.
