Chuwi Launch Dual Booting Hybrid Tablet for $179.99

Chuwi is not the first brand we think of when someone says “hybrid tablet” but they have recently launched a new device that appears to be an excellent contender for the budget market. Starting with a promotional price of $179.99 for the next 2 days and then rising to $224.99 after that although the keyboard has to be purchased separately, if you are looking for a tablet that comes with the option to dual boot both Windows 10 and Android this may be a device to consider and is a worthy contender to other options available.

ModelChuwi HiBook

The device features many of the features you would expect from a device in 2016 including: 4GB RAM, USB type C, 3 Amp charging and SD card support. The decision to include Android 5.1 is a bit disappointing now that Marshmallow has been around for so long, but hardly surprising looking at Android distribution figures showing Marshmallow still remains at just 2.3% of the market. The inclusion of both USB type C and Micro USB is a welcome change during the current transitionary period.
