In the news media covering the latest in the world of electronics, news from famous brands and popular companies is of great importance. At the same time, there are little-known firms that produce decent products. Let's pay attention to the tablets MobiScribe and Chuwi Ubook, which, at least for their price, deserve the attention of an ordinary user.
E-book + tablet
Everyone who loves to read has already appreciated the benefits of e-ink in e-books. It turns out to be an interesting device when combined with a touch tablet, such as the MobiScribe, which makes it possible to take notes and draw. Working on its 6.8-inch display is possible not only with your fingers, but also with the use of a stylus.
You can manually turn pages, use the capabilities of the user interface. The tablet comes with a Wacom pen that supports 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity. This is especially useful when drawing or writing.
This device was developed on the basis of a crowdfunding campaign. This made it possible to make its price acceptable for many groups of the population. It will cost just over $ 300, although it can now be purchased for $ 199.
Those who are interested in this product should find out some details of its technical data. The core of its hardware is the i.MX6 ARM processor, which is quite old. It has low RAM values. Only 512MB, so don't expect high performance from this tablet.
The device runs on Android 4.4. This OS is also used in few places due to its antiquity.
MobiScribe is developed by a little-known company TeamUC. The firm's economic policy is based on "flexible financing". This means that even if the required $ 30,000 is not collected during the advertising and fine-tuning of this tablet, the product will still go on sale.
At the moment, a much larger amount has already been collected, which indicates the manifestation of some consumer attention to this product.
Still, it seems that the fundamental factor in showing interest in him is his price. For now, for less than $ 200, you can get an e-reader (e-ink) tablet with a display resolution of 1440 x 1080 pixels, 8GB of eMMC storage. There is also a microSD card slot, Wi-Fi 802.11b / g / n, and a micro USB port. The battery with a capacity of 1500 mAh will allow you to use the product autonomously for a long time.
Ubook is good for work and play
The tablet allows you to plunge into the world of games, but work better on a laptop. Now it is not necessary to purchase these two gadgets. Chuwi's Ubook combines the virtues of both. If purchased, the user receives a mobile tablet and a productive laptop in one case.
This is a transformer with a plug-in keyboard, which allows you to use it for games and work anywhere: in transport, on vacation, in a cafe, etc. Here, as in the previous case, the determining factor is the price of the device.
Chuwi Ubook has an 11.6-inch monitor. The tablet is equipped with a folding stand that allows you to set an individual angle of inclination. This is especially true when drawing or working with the keyboard. The external keyboard is backlit and has a built-in touchpad. The device operates on a full-fledged Windows 10 operating system.
The basis of the hardware filling of the gadget is an energy-efficient Intel Core m3 chipset with a frequency of 2.2 GHz. Thanks to this, the device is quiet and does not require active cooling. Its battery allows for almost 10 hours of battery life.
A significant contribution to the performance of the product is made by the presence of 8 GB of RAM. All data can be saved with a large amount of internal memory - 128 GB or 1 TB.
