I got a question today if there are any stand-alone 8-inch Windows 10 tablets on the market right now that are still in production after I wrote about the Chuwi Hi 8 Air yesterday, or if they are all dual-OS tablets nowadays.
A very understandable question, because there’s been so few of those the last two years. But there is one still in production that is coming out with a new batch these days, and that’s the 8.3-inch Jumper EZpad Mini 4S: https://usa.banggood.com/Original-Box-Jumper-Ezpad-Mini-5
And the Jumper EZpad Mini 4S is a pure Windows 10 tablet with no other OS on it. Technically it is a tablet that’s 0.3 inches larger than an 8-inch tablet, but the outer dimensions are not much larger at 130mm x 224mm compared to the average 125mm x 213mm dimensions on average 8-inch tablets. The thickness is 9.5mm while the weight is 360 grams.
In addition the unusual 8.3-inch size with a 1920 x 1200 display resolution (fully laminated), it has something else unusual for an 8-inch tablet too, which is two USB ports. One is a regular micro-USB 2.0 port, but the other port is actually a full-size USB 3.0 port. So that’s a first. It also has a micro-HDMI port, and a 3.5mm audio jack.
Remaining specs are typical for Windows 10 tablets at 8 inches, meaning a Intel Atom x5-Z8350 processor, 2GB of DDR3 RAM, 32GB of storage, and 128GB microSD card support.
The battery is rated to 4500 mAh, and it has 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and a 2MP front camera. It looks modern and has black bezels.
It has a low price too, which is common for Jumper tablets, but on the downside it looks like the latest batch won’t ship its production until the end of February.
