Down but not out!

Firstly I’d like to apologize to all my customers, for the long period of inactivity here on the web store.

I broke my wrist, had to move regions, and had a variety of difficulties I won’t go into here, that caused me to have to focus on other issues. We are still small, and in the start up phase, but I am committed to providing New Zealand with a much needed niche – midrange tablets that are affordable and decent quality.

There is some good news on that front. I will very soon be getting in a few more models, including some Teclast or Chuwi hybrids, the solid Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 and a few others, including likely the Teclast x98 plus II. I’ve really enjoyed the plus II myself, it has nice speed to it, decent storage, works okay as a desktop too if you plug it in.

As well, we have manufacturers moving to the Apollo chipset, which is a lot faster, and the 8350 chipset which has less heat problems has been released, a tad faster, with quite a few models being upgraded there.

Lastly, and most exciting of all, we finally have a tablet chipset with thunderbolt coming, the next gen of Kaby Lake. This will be a game changer, mark my words, with external graphics, and hard drives making the 3 in 1 hybrid finally a very real possibility in the next year or so.

I hope to make a lot more people happy with decent, quality affordable tablets that undercut those pricey premium models, without the risks of the bargain basement.

I’ll let you know when the new models arrive. I’m prepared for a busy year. If you have any product suggestions or requests let me know – I have been looking at cheap laptops, and also mini-pcs.

Website outtage

We got attacked with some malware, and it took awhile to correct the issue. We are back on board now, and better protected and apologize to any customers who were left short!

Fortunately exciting times lay ahead. I’m looking forward to particularly the new edition of the Chuwi Hi10, which is a hybrid with a swivel keyboard that stacks up very nicely. I think coming towards the end of the year, especially Christmas, over winter we will see progressive variants with faster chips, especially the new cooler intel revisions coming out soon.

There are already plenty of models that run like a laptop in essence, providing that true 2 in 1, 3 in 1 type of experience that Windows 10 can afford – a single device to rule them all – but I think we will see greater power, in smaller sizes very soon, and at this lower price point, that will really open up the possibilities for everyone.
