Voyo WinPad A1 Mini is an 8″ dual boot (Windows 8.1 + Android 4.4) tablet


Voyo has been around for a while dishing out decent tablets, and with the dual boot thing getting a lot of traction in the Chinese market, the company has decided to join in on the fun.

The Voyo WinPad A1 Mini (the name is longer than the size of the tablet, some would feel) comes with an 8 inch screen featuring a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution. Like most entry-level tablets and mini PCs from China, this one too runs on the Intel Atom Z3735 processor.

The WinPad A1 Mini runs Android 4.4 KitKat besides Windows 8.1… I’m assuming it’ll be Windows 8.1 with Bing if it has to be legit. More so because the device is priced US$120.

Other specifications of the WinPad A1 Mini include 2GB of RAM, 16GB of on-board storage, 2 mega-pixel rear camera, VGA front facing camera and a 4200mAh battery. You can, as you would expect, connect the tablet to an external keyboard which sells separate.

The design of the WinPad A1 Mini reminds me of the Mi Pad a little… not sure if its intended to be that way. What do you think?

The WinPad A1 can be bought from GearBest for US$120.

    What do I think? Well, I’m suprised that the specs are more or less the same as Chuwi Vi8 and the latter is cheaper. Plus it’s out there for few months. One would expect an improvement (maybe 3 or 4 GB RAM). There needs to be a review to do a real comparison to see if maybe there’s a difference on build quality or performance.

      Lol, what is that? Is your model defective, or all of them? That really is a big turn off! Thanks for sharing, man!

        Thats the Voyo A1 Mini 32GB one that I got last year. It was defective with problems on the touch screen and charging. Apparently the same issue for a lot of people with the charging etc. Build quality is shocking.
        I also got their Voyo Mini PC as well and that thing overheats like crazy requiring an external USB fan to blow into the holes to keep the heat down (it goes up to 90c when it is under load!). Would not recommend this brand to anyone at all because of their dodgy designs and engineering.

    I have a Voyo A1 mini (Win 8.1 only). One of the best and cheapest 8″ full windows 8.1 tablet at that time. But the screen is a crispy as a prawn cracker. The screen was not properly sit in so I gave a very light press at one of the corners and the entire screen just cracked. Lucky, Aliexpress was selling it’s digitizer.

    I’ve got a Teclast X80H, it’s a great 8″ Tablet, everything works perfect on it and I’m seriously surpised how well Android runs on it too!

    I got it because I love the form factor of the iPad Mini and I fancied a dual boot device to have the best of both worlds (Windows and Android), my one and only gripe with it is that it only comes in a 32GB variant… 16gb for Windows 8.1 just isn’t enough!!! And Android isn’t much better once you start adding users to it…

    Better off with the high resolution of the Chuwi Hi8, no?
