Interesting novelties of 2016 from the Russian brand.
For the first time, bb-mobile tablets became known in January 2014. Since then, under the brand, which, by the way, belongs to the Russian distribution company Business Bureau, more than 20 different models of tablet computers have come out. Both Android and Windows were used as the operating system.
To date, bb-mobile tablets have been noted in almost all form factors – 7, 7.85, 8, 9, 9.7 and 10.1 inches. Almost all models support two SIM-cards and voice communication – that is, they can be used as a smartphone. Wireless modules Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3G and GPS (or GPS / GLONASS and 4G / LTE in some cases) are also present in the set of characteristics common to all tablets. In other words, almost any tablet can also perform the functions of a smartphone and a GPS navigator. At the beginning of 2016, bb-mobile introduced several new products at once. We decided to get acquainted with the most interesting of them.
bb-mobile Topol’ LTE (TQ863Q): powerful gaming tablet with 8-core processor
This 8-inch model is an improved version of the first Poplar from late 2014. The tablet was named so not in honor of the tree, but in honor of the missile system, clearly hinting at the high power of the device. The first bb-mobile Topol’ (TM859AC) appeared in November 2014 and almost immediately caught the attention of gamers. Which is not surprising: the model became the first tablet in Russia running on an 8-core processor. The “engine” scored 30,000 points in AnTuTu and coped well with heavy games.
The current version of the device – bb-mobile Topol’ LTE (TQ863Q) – has received a significant upgrade. The novelty is based on the 8-core MediaTek MT8783 with 64-bit Cortex-A53 cores. At the moment bb-mobile Topol’ LTE (TQ863Q) is the first and only tablet in Russia with this hardware platform. Thanks to the new hardware, the performance of the device has increased by 20%. The tablet scores 37,000 points in the AnTuTu test. Even with the highest graphics settings, 3D games just fly.
Like many other bb-mobile tablets, the brand new Topol’ LTE (TQ863Q) is enclosed in an all-metal case. This is a smart decision from both an aesthetic and a domestic point of view. The metal cover looks much more noble than plastic. Plus, the metal dissipates heat well, and therefore the tablet almost does not heat up at all in games. In addition, during bumps and falls, the metal case acts as a stiffener, protecting the inside of the tablet from damage.
And here is a comparison table, which immediately shows all the improvements implemented in bb-mobile Topol’ LTE:
bb-mobile Techno 10.1 LTE (TQ060X): Inexpensive tablet with large screen and LTE support
The price of this model is 8,490 rubles, which automatically makes bb-mobile Techno 10.1 LTE (TQ060X) the most inexpensive tablet with a 10-inch screen and 4G/LTE support in Russia. This is a tablet with average characteristics and a set of basic functions. There is support for two SIM-cards, quite a vigorous 4-core processor, GPS, voice communication and SMS. For everyday tasks, more is not needed. And for such a price, no one will offer more opportunities anyway.
bb-mobile Techno Mozg 7.0 (I700AJ) and 8.0 (X800BJ): affordable tablets with an Intel processor
Two budget tablets with 4-core Intel Atom X3 processors (USA) at once. Both models are similar in many ways: they run on Android 5.1, have the same amount of RAM and internal memory (1 and 8 GB, respectively) and are equipped with 3G modules.
The differences lie not only in the size of the screen. The model with the 8-inch display has a larger battery and a more serious camera. And bb-mobile Techno Mozg 7.0 (I700AJ) supports two SIM-cards. Both tablets demonstrate smooth and fast performance. And generally leave a good impression.
The main characteristics of the models:
bb-mobile Techno W10.1 (M101AU): convertible tablet for Windows 10
In this regard, bb-mobile Techno W10.1 (M101AU) compares favorably with competitors. Included with the novelty is a keyboard with which you can choose the desired angle of the tablet, as well as fold the structure like a laptop. Such keyboards can most often be found on expensive tablets – from 25 thousand rubles. And in the case of bb-mobile Techno W10.1 (M101AU), the issue price is 15,490 rubles.
The keyboard is securely attached to the tablet and can be easily detached if necessary. Hinge holders and latches with fasteners guarantee a secure connection. The keyboard won’t come loose or fall off while working or being carried. The obvious advantages of this design are the absence of wires and the need to use a Bluetooth connection. With the attached keyboard, the bb-mobile Techno W10.1 (M101AU) turns into a real laptop.
bb-mobile Techno W8.0 3G (Q800AY): handy Windows 10 tablet
The compact model with operating system from Microsoft has very good characteristics. The tablet is powered by a 4-core Intel Atom Z3735F processor. The amount of RAM is 2 GB, and built-in – 32 GB (plus there is support for memory cards). In the price segment “about 10 thousand rubles” Windows tablets usually boast only 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of ROM, which is not enough for the specified OS.
bb-mobile Techno W8.0 3G easily fits in one hand. Small frames to the left and right of the screen provide convenient control, and generally make the tablet more attractive. Although this is a Windows tablet, there is no keyboard included. The 8″ model is not the most comfortable typing option compared to the 10.1″. But with other everyday tasks, bb-mobile Techno W8.0 3G (Q800AY) copes without any complaints.
On this acquaintance with the new products from bb-mobile comes to an end. As you can see, the Russian brand continues to offer interesting solutions and, despite the crisis, keeps reasonable prices for its devices.
