Teclast Tbook 16S is an 11.6-inch tablet with built-in kick stand that will be released on September 15 for $259. It is essentially Surface 3 clone with a slightly larger screen than the 10.8-inch screen of the Surface 3, but otherwise has similar specs, but for under half the price of Microsoft’s tablet offer:
OS options are Windows 10 or Android 5.1, since this is a dual-OS tablet, or 2-in-1. But the Teclast Tbook 16S keyboard is optional, so we can label it both tablet and 2-in-1. The keyboard that also adds a touchpad, costs $37 and comes in options of light blue or dark blue, and is also formed generally similar to some of the Surface 3 keyboards.
And just like a Surface, this tablet too has digitizer support.
The 11.6-inch screen of the Teclast Tbook 16S has Full HD display with 1920 x 1080 resolution, and other specs include the Intel Atom x5-Z8300 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage with 128GB microSD card support.
Other likable specs include a 9300 mAh battery capacity, a full-Size USB port, a micro-USB port, and a micro-HDMI port, 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 support, and a magnesium aluminum alloy casing that wraps up the tablet.
The Teclast Tbook 16S also has a 2MP front camera and a 5MP rear camera.
The keyboard is connected to the tablet via magnetic docking, with pogo pin signal transfer, so there is no Bluetooth lag, like there have sometimes been with some Bluetooth keyboards.
The keyboard also works as a screen protector or cover for the screen when it is clammed together with the tablet.
Because of the low price and the generally good quality of Teclast tablets, the Teclast Tbook 16S is expected to become one of Teclast’s bestselling tablets this year, so that development will be interesting to watch.
