BQ Edison, a good low cost Spanish Android tablet for 199 euros

B.Q. Edison

We have talked to you on some occasions about a Spanish company that is dedicated to making low cost Android tablets that are really interesting for the good prices they have. We are talking about BQ, which also creates e-readers at a good price. Well, we want to tell you about one of its most striking and recent tablets in launch, the B.Q. Edison.

B.Q. Edison

Seven of all BQ tablets were recently updated to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a requirement to have some competitiveness now that Jelly Bean is on the loose, but BQ Edison already came with this operating system from the beginning.

We are facing a tablet with a high average endowment but at a low cost price. The B.Q. Edison is a tablet with a 10-point capacitive multi-touch screen 10,1 inches with a Clear View X-Wide VA panel that gives you a resolution of X and a viewing angle of 178 degrees, which seeks an enjoyment of content in any position such as IPS. In short, the screen is not bad at all, we only notice a little lack of contrast if we raise the brightness, but it is a decent screen.

It has a Rockchip RK30 chip integrated by a processor ARM Cortex A-9 dual-core a 1,6 GHz plus one Mali GPU 400. This chip is manufactured by the Chinese company Fuzhou Rockchip that allows you to play video at 1080p and output that signal through HDMI. This chip is accompanied by 1GB DDR 3 RAM, the fastest memory we can find.

It has a medium storage with 16 GB which we can expand by card microSD up to 32 GB. It connects to the Internet by WiFi and it supports 3G modems over USB. It can communicate with other devices by Bluetooth 4.0 Of high speed.

Has a port USB 2.0, dual output HDMI for 1080p video and 3.5 mm jack audio output. BQ Edison mounts two cameras one front VGA and a rear of 2MPX that really is of little use. Your battery of 6400 mAh which gives an autonomy of about 6 hours. All this with a 10mm thickness y 655 grams of weight.

As we see BQ Edison has an average endowment, but its price is brutal, only $199. It is a good tablet to begin to familiarize yourself with, although it is curious that in the 7 inches we are finding more powerful devices for the same price, but that do not give storage expansion options such as Nexus 7 or Kindle Fire HD.

    For those of you who now like 7 ″, I recommend:
    BQ Maxwell Plus (IPS screen, CPU: Dual Core Cortex A9 1.6 GHz, GPU: Quad Core ARM Mali-400, Micro-SD ™ slot, HDMI Full HD Dual 1080p, Bluetooth V.4.0 (HS) High speed, Wi-Fi 802.11 b / g / n ... etc) and for 140 euros

    Edison Advantages - Speed, good resolution, memory and connectivity, great value
    Advantages of the Nexus 7. Speed, very good resolution, low memory and no connectivity. Good price.

    Something cool that you shit is that you can transform an Edison with a kit that they sell on e-bay into something more than a simple tablet

      Quality does not have to be at odds with what you spend.
      Look at my Edison's Quardrant above the Asus Transformer.
