As you know already, we’re testing a lot of Allview tablets these days, since the Romanian brand decided to churn out quite the number of such devices. The latest release is the Allview TX1 Quasar, a $277 slate with an 8 inch diagonal, that strongly reminds me of the 8.2 inch Motorola Xoom 2, a strange format of slate.


The device was launched this week and we already received for testing purposes, so we’re showing you its unboxing today. We’re dealing with a 3G tablet, with a 3G module on and the ability to make phone calls. It measures 9.9 mm in thickness, weighs 435 grams and packs an 8 inch IPS LCD display, with a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels and 4:3 aspect ratio. It runs Android 4.0.4, has a dual core Cortex A9 CPU at 1 GHz, GPS, support for 3G video calls and normal calls.

Inside the box we find the charger, USB cable, manual, headphones, tablet and Bitdefender Mobile Security code. Allview TX1 Quasar also provides 4 GB of storage, of which 2 GB are user accessible and also 1 GB of RAM. It has a main 3.2 MP camera at the back and a front 0.3 MP shooter, while the battery inside is a Li-Polymer 4000 mAh unit, good enough for 5.5 hours of talk time.
