The Teclast P98HD comes with 2GB DDR3 of memory to work with and the everywhere Rockchip RK3188 quad-core SoC or ‘system on a chip’ processor with a clock speed of up to 1.6GHz.
Inside, that 9.7-inch panel using Retina I-PS technology delivers 2048×1536-pixel resolution, much like the last two generations of Apple iPad. Also, gaming gets a run thanks to the unit’s ARM Mali-400 MP4 graphics core.
A 16GB cache of internal flash handles on-board storage but unlike an iPad, you’ve got plenty of external storage here, thanks to MicroSD, up to 32GB to store more files. Android 4.1 is the operating system behind the device. Peripheral connectivity is covered by one microUSB port included, while an HDMI v.1.3 port is there to connect up to your big-screen TV. Next, 802.11b/g/n-standard Wi-Fi will connect you to your home or office network, but unfortunately, there’s no Bluetooth on-board.
Despite being thinner than an iPad 4, Teclast has cleverly managed to still load in a massive 8500mAh Lithium-polymer battery, so battery life should be pretty good.
You can capture still images via the 5MP camera on the back of the device or simply use the front-facing 2MP camera for personal shots. There are no details yet on video recording capabilities.
The Teclast P98HD lands on the scales with 608g and measures 240 x 185 x 8.5mm. Teclast announced this in June 2013.
