Telecast P78HD 7” FHD, 4.4 KitKat tablet on sale for just $119

Constantly dropping component costs have led to the release of Android devices such as the Telecast P78HD launching at it incredible prices! Take a look at the specs.

Since the launch of the iPad mini we have seen an increase in the number mini Android tablets available from China, each one offering more and more for your money compared to Apples alternative. Well known (in China) tablet maker Telecast are now offering their latest model, the Telecast P78HD, at an incredibly low price to customers outside of China.

The design of the Telecast is similar to the iPad Mini’s but at just 7-inch the device is slightly smaller. Resolution is 1920 x 1200 which is fine for the price although not a ‘Retina’ model as the Telecast marketing team would have you believe.

Rather than going for a Mediatek solution the P78HD has a Allwinner A31 SoC on board. The A31 is a quad-core unit based on Cortex A7 cores and runs at just 1GHz, again fine for the price and enough for 1080 video playback on the device or even 2160p video to a TV via HDMI. There is no 3G (unless you use an additional dongle) but there is WIFI, and the tablet supports OTG and Miracast.

Telecast are also shipping their low-cost 7-inched with Android 4.4 Kitkat too, so you can benefit from up to date optimizations which help the OS be less of a RAM hog. The P78HD tablet is on sale through Orientdeal, follow the link below to get the full specifications.

    Retina is just a term Apple used to describe high PPI screen (although they also use it inconsistently on their macbook, which is far from 320PPI), since this tablet has 1920×1200 at 7″ that means 323PPI. So yes, it’s “Retina” by definition.

      Yes, it is a marketing term. but for the general public it has become a word to describe panels with invisible pixels. And at 320ppi you definitely can see the pixels. It really is a thing of point of view and what one understands as “Retina”.

        You can if you squint really hard or like to bring your phone very close to your face it actually hurt to read things. I’d rather take 320PPI great display over 441PPI bad one, it’s just one part of the equation and past some point there are other things more important than resolution/PPI war to consider.

        • May 26, 2014

          Yes, I agree with your point of view.

            It’s actually quite surprising when I compare my G4S to my friends Galaxy S4 directly. He even admitted that the screen is very nice, that’s from someone who are used to see 1080p Amoled 441PPI screen everyday for a year or so.

    That’s not even a very good price, this model has been at this price or lower for a while. As an example spemall lists it at 104$

    I Would like to See some video Review and Antutu score. On Chinese manufacturers the High Resolution Doesnt Mean good screen quality. 1ghz might be Kind of Slow for some Applications
