Teclast’s dual-boot TBook 16 has a massive 11.6-inch screen


1456886534775234534Apple made one-handed tablet use possible with the iPad mini a few years back. However, most makers in China still seem to believe in the ‘bigger, the better’ mantra.

Teclast has a few smaller tablets in the offering, but the new TBook 16 is definitely not one of them. It comes with a rather large 11.6-inch display.

Unlike other dual-booting devices we’ve been witnessing, the TBook 16 isn’t a laptop/netbook, but a standalone tablet. You can, of course, pair it with a keyboard. But it doesn’t come with one attached to its body.

As for the specifications, the TBook 16 comes with the 64-bit, quad-core Intel Cherry Trail Z8300 that has also been found inside a lot of other new tablets. With that, the device has 4GB RAM, 64GB on-board storage and 2 mega-pixel cameras on the front and rear.

The 11.6-inch panel of the TBook 16 has a resolution of 1920 x 1080p, aka Full HD. The tablet comes with an 8000mAh battery, and is priced $237 shipped.

Regarding its capability to dual boot, the tablet can boot into either Android 5.1 Lollipop or Windows 10 right out of the box.

      At least this one has 4GB of RAM though compared to the 2GB in just about every tablet from China these days.

        I disagree: most (serious) brands have 2/32 or 4/64 products. It’s just a matter of price 🙂

          What are these “serious” brands? I have been in the market for a Chinese tablet and nearly everyone has 2GB.

            Teclast, Cube are my two favorite brands, but Chuwi did good stuff too (Hi12 for example http://www.gearbest.com/tablet-pcs/pp_289082.html)…

              The only Teclast tablet I could find with 4GB was the X98 Plus. Is it any good?

              A co-worker of mine bought one last December, and was really pleased with it. But he sold it a few weeks after, because he fell in love with the Teclast X16 Power (Pro is nice too) 🙂

              Good to know. I really like the look of it. I don’t know much of Chinese tablets. I wanted the Mipad 2 but the 2GB really scared me away from it.

              Not only the 2GB RAM… the screen size is too small too 🙂

              The smaller size Teclast Tbook 11 looks interesting as well. It has the same specs, only a bit smaller battery and only 10.6″ screen. But cheaper as well.

              I fully admit I am clueless when it comes to tablets. I bought a Nexus 7 in 2012 when it launched and that’s the only tablet I have used since.

    ‘Apple made one-handed tablet use possible with the iPad mini a few years back’

    Translation: Apple belatedly followed just about every other tablet maker…
