Chuwi VX8 3G: Windows 8.1 Edition

IMP3NetChuwiVX83GPR001

IMP3Net runs some hard-sell press material from Chuwi that confirms the upcoming VX8 3G will also have a Windows 8.1 edition [Google Translate].

Since this tablet will offer 3G (with the usual caveats that it might not be compatible outside of China), it will probably do GPS as well.

Xiaomi MiPad 64GB Open Sales

A Xiaomi account is needed — and it needs to be tied to a cellphone inside China. See my ordering attempt in the prior post.
