come from China from time to time exciting devices, including one that Teclast X80 Plus with dual boot definitely can count. Because this model combines two of the biggest operating systems for tablets beyond Apple iOS: Windows 10 Mobile and Android. A dream that we had close in the past to engage from time to time, which is but then explodes at the end. If we can now actually buy a dual-boot-capable Tablet?
In China everything is possible known what technology terms. With license rights you look at it there is not as accurate. And so we find, in fact, with the Teclast X80 Plus not only a dual-boot-capable tablet, but inexpensive it is, however, also. Technically it is more established as a solid:

Teclast X80 Plus relies on Dual Boot
Of course there are in China already some tablet models on which 10 Mobile and Android run Windows as a dual boot configuration. How is the Teclast X80 Plus is however different from these models the offered technology for a price of less than 100 euros. For devices with the Intel Atom x5-Z8300 one must usually place much more on the table.
A disadvantage of a dual-boot tablet but and is not exactly small, or literally small: It has only 32 GB of internal memory, which both Windows 10 and Android 5.1 Lollipop have to share it. Unfortunately not with a common memory area, so that data can easily be used under both operating systems. These must serve a MicroSD memory card, which can be up to 128 GB in size, after all.
Windows 10 itself has available, while Android 5.1 Lollipop has to make do with 4 GB on the tablet, almost 6 GB of free space.
The change between the two operating systems itself is relatively easy by hand, since an each corresponding app to boot the Teclast X80 is Plus.
However, a real feature of the model is under Android preloaded Google Play Store. In China a real exception – it is in principle not voted the group from Mountain View and its free applications so positive.
Once you start the tablet after complete shutdown again, you get a simple boot manager for the to start operating system to face.
It concerned even the greats of the industry with the theme dual boot, such as Microsoft. The Redmond software giant even has a patent on the subject of dual boot (the contribution), while Google would rather ban the thing equal completely (to post).
Rates and Availability
So it must be noted that Chinese tablet models despite sufficient good hardware does not have to cost a lot. Officially, the Teclast X80 is not Plus in Germany or even Europe to have. Instead you have to rely on the import dealer of their choice.
For example, on GearBest.com where the model for just under 91 US dollars – the equivalent of about 81 euros – has to have including shipping. Depending on how long you are willing to wait, be the additional shipping costs from 1.30 to 33.06 US dollars. If you can have up to 1 month of patience, it is even shipping for free.
