After a few days ago, the Chinese producer Teclast announced the Taipower X89 HD tablet, now several retailers from China started to put the tablet in the pre-sale program. While the Android version of this tablet can be bought for about $177, the Windows 8.1 version has a $193 pricetag on


This tablet offers a 7.9-inch display with a 2.048 x 1.536 pixel resolution and a 326 ppi density, an Intel Bay Trail-T X86 processor clocked at 1.83 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage, a microUSB 2.0 port, GPS, WiFi and a 6.000 mAh battery.

Teclast Taipower X89 HD measures only 7.4 mm in thickness and it may be considered as a pretty good clone of the iPad Mini tablet developed by Apple. As you can see in the picture above, this tablet also offers pretty slim bezels.

    So this must be the first non-ruggedised tablet with preinstalled Windows 8.1 and 4:3 screen. Great! According to the picture, the Windows language is Chinese. Downloading English would be possible but consume a few more GB. The next trouble will be the power adapter. Let us hope that European and American versions of this tablet will appear, too.

    I would love to see a review of the tablet with Windows, especially WLAN quality, battery, mirroring of the display surface, brightness. BTW, is WLAN world-wide the same standard everywhere, same in China and Europe?

    Is this the same tablet that elsewhere was rumoured under the tag ROSA?
