While the TCL NXTPAPER is an e-ink alternative without using an e-ink display, the TCL Tab 10s is a much more familiar tablet. It’s practically what you would come to expect from a conventional large-screen tablet. For the current study-from-home era, getting a large screen device becomes crucial from an e-learning perspective, and this tablet provides another viable option in a contract Android tablet market.

In addition to the standard set of hardware specifications, the TCL Tab 10s also has a few key features to help parents manage their children’s time online. There’s an independent parental control interface and remote control, which gives parents the option to manage the student’s study and rest time, as well as control any third-party apps being used on the device. The device can also alert users when they get closer than 9-inches from the display, which sounds like a very helpful feature for a device intended to be handed over to young children.

The TCL Tab 10s also comes with POGO pin connectors to support third-pary accessories, along with the TCL T-Pen stylus.

Pricing and Availability

The TCL Tab 10s will be available in Europe, North America, Middle East, Africa, China, Asia Pacific, and Latin America. Pricing starts at €199 for the Wi-Fi-only version, and €249 for the 4G version.
