I bought myself a new comics reader

Some of you may remember me buying myself a tablet for reading electronic comics a few years ago.

It was a great size, but sadly at that point cheap Android tablets were, frankly, badly underpowered.

This year, it seems, they are not. I bought one of these, which dual-boots between Android and Windows*.

It is awesome.4GB of RAM means that it switches instantly between applications and runs incredibly fast. Enough storage to keep me very happy. Runs for several hours of comic reading, and has a decent IPS screen the size of a trade paperback.

I also picked up a keyboard for it. From GearBest. It works really well as a protector for the screen, and is magnetic so it slots instantly into place.

There's quite a good review here.

If you're looking for a mini-laptop/large tablet then I highly recommend it.

The only downside is that it shipped from China and took about a month to get to me. But if you can live with that then you're all good.

*Suddenly I'm having dejavu. Did I already post about this? Possibly on Facebook???
