Surprise! Teclast X98 Air II

Yes, a second version of the Teclast X98 Air!

If you were about to order the original Teclast X98 Air, don’t. This new one uses the Intel 3736F with a peak frequency of 2.16 GHz! That should bring a measurable improvement in speed. I wouldn’t be surprised if an honest AnTuTu score breaks into the 30,000-level.

iLevon Cruelly Teases Everyone

It’s an open secret that Xiaomi is working on a phone with a MediaTek 6595 CPU to blunt the introduction of the similarly-CPUed Meizu MX4 (which, if Meizu’s claim is true, has gotten at least 7.7 million pre-orders).

iLevon — who works on the Xiaomi MIUI team — sent out a Weibo communiqué that is cruel in its possible specs and prices:

4G and those specs at US$245 tops?! This is a very, very cruel joke.

Credibility-Stretching Review Of CUBE Talk9X

Cube Talk 9X review : Fully loaded tablet at an amazing price!

Here is the WTF:

The Mediatek chip offers a smoother overall experience. It even beats the Onda V989 with Allwinner’s new ARM Cortex A80T!

I don’t have a throat wide or deep enough to swallow that.

And really, comparing it to a Rockchip 3188? This is 2014, not 2012!
