    Do we really need dual-boot phones/tablets?

    • Rain says:

      Having dual boot tablet/phone will give you the best of both worlds.

      For one, there are many games and apps which are android only. If you are into portable gaming, you’ll definitely want to be in android mode.

      But there are also some Windows-based applications out there such as Warcraft3/DotA. Besides, there are also many Windows apps from the Windows Store available.

    Battery capacity. How long it will last :(

  4. VTLOBO says:

    ang tanong ilan na lang matitira sa storage nito mga tablet. baka ilang apps lang mainstall dito sabay insufficient storage na agad.

    Just my 2 cents:
    Hackers, prepare your keyboards and mice. We now have a new victim to a new hack.

  6. andrei says:

    Good day. Tanong ko lang po. Since these tablets can run on windows and android, can i use these like a windows laptop? Like play browser games and install windows app?

  7. accel says:

    That 32 GB of internal storage is definitely a nail in the coffin for this tablet. Upgrading this into Windows 10 is definitely impossible on this one.

    • Rain says:

      A 32GB internal storage is pretty much standard in tablets.

      Besides, I think Windows 10 is also possible in the future for this one considering the following system requirements for Windows 10:
      * Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster
      * RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) (32-bit) or 2 GB (64-bit)
      * Free hard disk space: 16 GB
      * Graphics card: Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM driver
      * A Microsoft account and Internet access

      I agree, that the storage space is not enough for windows. I own an Asus T100 with 64GB storage, but after installing all the updates and the free office home and student edition I was left with only ~30GB of free storage. Although I could still free about 8GB by removing the recovery partition but that would mean using an external flash storage every time I need to reset windows. High speed micro SDs are good work arounds, however some windows apps will not allow you to install them anywhere else but on drive c.

    • james says:

      With a 32GB emmc, Windows 8.1 (wimboot) will leave you with about 20GB free space. Minus a couple of GBs for Android. You wont be able to upgrade to Windows 10 Technical preview just yet.

    no one needs windows tablets!!

    • noni says:

      you might be surprised to know that some people would actually prefer a windows tablet over an android one. to each his own. so saying “no one” may be too radical. remember steve jobs once said nobody would buy a big phone but now they made the iphone six plus.

  9. Mr A says:

    I wish they could just offer a DVD with windows 8 and android so that users can just load whatever OS they want to use in the device. Having them both in the memory is a waste of space.

    • mark says:

      Then don’t buy it. These tablets are marketed towards the Windows / Android crowd that WANTS to have both operating systems installed.

      If you want to have only ONE operating system then there’s plenty of other tablets to choose from.

    Still wala paring 3G.. bat ba ayaw nilang magrebrand ng ganun hayy

    • steve says:

      You are better off using a pocket wifi instead of relying on built-in 3G/4G modem on tablets.

      1. Wifi only tablets are cheaper.
      2. Wifi has a lower battery consumption than 3G/4G.
      3. A pocket wifi costs as low as 1000 pesos.

  11. akosijayboy says:

    hmm.. this sounds similar to this..
    Teclast p89
    teclast x98 air 35
    sabi pag dual OS 64GB talaga ang minimum. kasi sa 32GB sobrang konting space natitira because the OS share.
