Allview is a Romanian company that has a lot of tablets in its portofolio and we’ve tested some of them over the years. The latest such device is the Allview Wi8G, a product that launched in December and offers both 3G and Windows 8.1 in the same package.

There’s HSPA+ connectivity in the mix, with up to 21 Mbps download speed, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and two cameras, both with 2 MP resolution. The battery inside is a 3800 mAh Li-Po unit, with 4 hours of usage promised. The charger bundled with the tablet is a 5V/2A unit. I should also mention that this Windows 8.1 model comes with bundled Office 365 Personal for 1 year, with 1 TB of cloud storage also included, via OneDrive.

The setup process is very long, but in the end the UI is fluid and there’s no functioning problem. We will be back with a review soon.
