Also available from within the EU from (non HUKD approved) geekbuying.com (Spanish warehouse) for £152.85 + shipping. It's the windows 8 version but will upgrade to 10.

I had the non 3G version of this. Has the same LG retina panel as used in the iPad Air. Worked really well when running windows but Android wasn't so hot.

Nice tablet, love that high res display and ideal that's it's running both OSs.
The Teclast X98 Pro also looks like an interesting latest addition with Win 10/Lollipop, 4Gb RAM, 64Gb storage and an Atom X5.Z8300.

No mobile/3G though.

​that one looks really good! Finally 4gb ram. Want to see how the new chips benchmark but I'd replace my hudl 2 with this one.
I didn't spot the 4GB ram version

gearbest.com/tab…594

Personally I'd use my phone as hotspot anyway.
I wonder if 64GB is enough storage. We all know how much space Windows likes to use.
These look decent, anyone know real world battery life?
I picked up a Galaxy Tab A 9.7, off Amazon and I am mightily pleased. I had two first gen. Nexus 7. I don't trust Apple, never have.
More to the point, I am sticking with a company, I trust Samsung, they may never be the best, at everything like Microsoft, but they integrate smoothly across platforms.
When problems arise; it's the User's lack of knowledge which, leads to a quick usurp of finger pointing.

​it has a micro sd slot if that helps.
I'd also tether my phone too seeing as I have a 20gb data plan.

I actually think this tablet is more powerful that my laptop.....
this is definitely not the CHEAPEST way of buying a Teclast! aliexpress/kimovil/ other china sites are around $190 delivered last I checked

​i know I sound like a bot promoting something, but I can assure you I'm not. the guy doing those reviews goes to town on thermals, benchmarks, comparisons. even shows how to mod with better thermal cooling. I'm going to pull trigger on the pro v2 if/ when it gets released. hopefully addressing the throttling issues on the pro. air doesn't suffer from this.
Has anyone any idea if this will support Flash player and BBC Iplayer? As i live in Turkey where they will not develop 4G but will develop 4.5G yes I know I don't understand why, then 3G will be fine for me in the medium term.

Thanks ,I thought afterwards about Windows being ok, I was a bit annoyed that my Hudl 2 didn't on Android

The EU warehouse one is listed with a CN plug,is this what you have received and is it like an EU plug?
i wouldnt trust china plugs. This uses a micro usb connector, use your own plug IMHO
Flash can be sideloaded onto android, but you do need a flash capable browser. dolphin/firefox/chrome do not have flash support, other browsers on the play store might?

I received the tablet yesterday. Would have been sooner but Yodel didnt deliver it on the friday. Its a pretty decent tablet and the build quality is quite good. When you turn it on you get a boot menu screen where you can choose between Android and Windows. Both run pretty quick and the screen is lovely. Windows is scaled to 200% by default as the native resolution makes the fonts and icons absolutely minute. The battery seems to take an age to charge and that was using the charger that came with it wheich was a foreign charger with an adapter. It is rated at 2.5 amps and I didnt have another charger at that level so I used that otherwise it would probably take even longer to charge. The only downer seems to be that the Android on it is version 4.4.4 and not 5 as advertised and there are a few chinese apps that cant be uninstalled (Baidu, ifly). Overall I would say its a no brainer if you are looking for one of these type of tablets.
Cheers for the link aceshigh - tablet was still in my basket so allowed me to order
i would wait as techtablets are showing overheating issues with these at the moment.

Thanks, did you order the 4GB Ram version?

Also did you see the keyboard case? gearbest.com/tab…907

Decent reviews of various chinese tablets here
Do any of these come with nice Surface style keyboards and a kick stand?

I'd like one but the bit that puts me off are those keyboard cases. I've had a few with for various Android tablets and not found one that I liked. My friend has a surface and that design is far nicer.

Unfortunately I won't use it enough to justify Surface prices.

I've had one of these since January, I picked one up in Beijing for about £115 IIRC. They are fantastic. Mine is only 32GB. Windows 10 has given it a new lease of life. android works fine also. Battery lasts about 6 hours. You can upgrade to lollipop 5.x but I haven't bother. Slap a launcher on (smart, Nova etc), and it works like a dream. Sound is OK. Headphones connected and sound is above average. skygo didn't work on windows 8.1 on this or android. It does on windows 10. Banking apps work. (Santander and Barclay's) loads of guides on YouTube and xda. You can get this cheaper but I am voting this hot, as I sometimes post "deals" just to get HUKD feedback. I bought an apple air cover and keyboard, with a little trimming here and there it is fine. Get a screen saver as the touchscreen is not very robust, I think it came with one on, and I peeled it off thinking it was part of the wrapping :-(. Oh and the 3g slot takes a regular sim. Works fine on 3 and Vodafone. Not tried any others. You can use this as a phone if you so wish. It's a very good product. Its not top quality, its not apple, but for the price it is well worth it.

Mine lasts under a day on light use.

There were thermal issues on the original android and it was bloated with unreadble/unusable junk apps. The android needs an unofficial Rom to make usable. The headphone socket is dodgy: you dont push it all the way in or it wont work, it needs to be halfway. When you remove it, theres no sound at all, until you reboot. The screen can freeze as well, but is fixed by lock on/off.

*Edit: Forgot to mention. Mine (Teclast X98 Air 3G 64Gb) came from Banggood China. And I had to pay another £15 once it was in the UK or they would'nt deliver it, so be aware of import fee if you go via the same route.

It's not the teclast, its your non android headphones, sounds daft, but Google it. Yours are designed for apple.
