I’ve just got my hands on one of the first fully-fledged Windows 10 tablets to arrive on the market. It’s called the Linx 1010 – and it is the successor to the great value Linx 10 tablet which I reviewed late last year.
I’m going to write up a full review over the next 2 weeks, once I’ve had a chance to give the device a full test as my daily driver. In the meantime, however, I thought I’d post up some initial photos and impressions to give you a feel for what the device looks like and how it works.
The images above aren’t edited or cropped – they are simply to give you an idea of what the device looks like.
- The new keyboard dock is a MASSIVE improvement on the last one for the Linx 10 – such a better experience. It’s often difficult to use such small keyboards for large amounts of typing – just because the keys are too small – but this one works unbelievably well and gives very nice feedback as you type.
- It has TWO FULL SIZE USB ports – I’m not joking. This is fantastic for such a small, budget tablet. I’m not 100% sure whether they are USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 – I would think most likely the former – but even so this is a fantastic improvement. They’re on the tablet itself too – not on the dock, so you’ve immediately got a way to charge your phone or sync music directly from the tablet. Well done Linx!
- Hardware-wise there are very few changes on the last Linx 10 tablet. Same processor, same RAM, same storage.
- Same 720p screen resolution – not bad and perfectly usable, but a little low given the standards set by many tablets these days.
- Battery life about on par with expectations – six two eight hours of normal use depending on the types of tasks being performed.
Full review coming in the next 2 weeks – stay tuned!
