We tested one of the last tablets of Woxter , the Nimbus 102 Q . This device offers maximum performance at an affordable price . Therefore, it is specially designed for those who are looking for a tablet with a large screen and do not want to leave all their salary in the terminal.
The Woxter Nimbus 102 Q has a 10.1-inch panel , a standard measurement for this type of equipment. It has a resolution of 1368 x 768 pixels, with which we can see all kinds of movies, videos and other files at an acceptable quality. It also has an elegant design in white on the front and metallic on the back. It has very clean lines and rounded edges that make the terminal have a very pleasant aesthetic. In fact, its design is one of the strengths of the terminal, since it is 7.8 millimeters thick and 498 grams that make it a very practical tablet.
The device comes with a chip Cortex A9 quad-core with a power of 1.6 gigahertz , which binds to a graphics processor quad core Mali 400 and a memory RAM 1 gigabyte . It has an Android 4.4 operating system. Thanks to this, we can enjoy all the applications that are in the Google Play store . In addition, in terms of internal memory we are facing a computer that has 16 gigabytes expandable up to 64 gigabytes through a microSD card .
Also, your main camera is two megapixels that although limp in this regard, we must remember that these devices are not manufactured to take pictures. The same goes for the front, which is of standard quality . With this we can take selfies or talk via videoconference with our friends or family.
In the section of connections it does not fall short: Mini HDMI, Miracast, Bluetooth 4.0 and WiFi , among others. Its range is 6,000 milliamps , with which we can enjoy thirteen hours of continuous use without our battery is exhausted, approximately. In short, a very balanced team for a competitive price. We tell you our impressions about this tablet.
Design and display
One of the sections for which the Woxter team must be congratulated is for the design of the device . Its marked lines with rounded edges , its high-gloss white front and its metallized back make the tablet a very elegant and practical terminal . Not only because of the features already mentioned, but because it only weighs 498 grams and is 7.8 millimeters thick . It has a height of 261.1 mm and a width of 155 mm . In short, nothing to envy to other devices.
Regarding its screen, 10.1 inches with a resolution of 1,368 x 768 pixels make it possible to see all the movies, videos, photographs and any other type of file at an acceptable quality. This resolution will allow us to see the contents of the equipment with a good level of detail and has the capacity to use up to 10 pressure points at the same time.
Camera and multimedia
The Woxter Nimbus Q 102 has a main two - megapixel camera . Perhaps this is the weak point of the tablet, but it must be remembered that this type of equipment is not especially comfortable for taking pictures, so it is not particularly relevant either. Also, on its front it has a standard camera , enough to make videoconferences with your friends or family through Skype or Hangouts . Likewise, you can also take selfies or self-portraits, the snapshots of the moment.
Regarding its multimedia formats , the device is capable of playing MP3, Midi, AAC, AMR, WAV, JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, 3GP, MP4 and 3GPP .
Memory and power
The device comes with a quad-core Cortex A9 processor rated at 1.6 gigahertz. This chip is coupled with a Mali 400 quad-core graphics processor and 1 gigabyte RAM . It is true that the latter may fall short when it comes to executing several applications at the same time, but the set in general responds fluently to most Android processes .
As for its internal memory, the tablet has 16 gigabytes . If that seems small, you can expand it using a 64 gigabyte microSD card . If you still think you lack space, you can always save your files in a cloud storage system such as DropBox or Google Drive .
Operating system and applications
The Woxter Nimbus Q 102 has an operating system Android 4.2.2 , software for mobile and tablets Google . However, Woxter has promised to update the platform to Android KitKat as soon as the multinational releases the code. Thanks to it, we will be able to enjoy the full range of applications offered by Google Play , which already has more than a million apps on its service. Among the most prominent are Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or Instagram . In addition, the device comes with some pre-installed serial apps from the Mountain View company itself , such as the online video websiteYouTube , the search assistant, Google Now, or Google Maps .
It even has a couple of shortcuts to the Woxter store . It also has Aldiko , an application that has pleasantly surprised us and that will do the same with all lovers of reading. With it and its Day & Night functions you can read books in a very comfortable way, since it allows you to have a white or black background. In addition, you can increase or decrease the size of the letter, or raise or lower the brightness of the screen directly from the application. Even if you are one of those who like to watch series or movies from your tablet, the computer comes with the VLC player pre-installed.
It also has a file manager and a tool for creating Excel documents or sheets called Documents to Go. As if that were not enough, it comes with an application to put a three-dimensional wallpaper that is entertaining to say the least. In short, a very complete tablet .
Connectivity and autonomy
Another of the sections in which this tablet stands out is in that of the connections. In this way, if you want to connect to the Internet, you can do it through any WiFi network . We can even connect it to our television through a Mini HDMI cable . It also has Miracast technology , which is used to transmit the contents of the tablet to the television in real time.
We can charge the device through a MicroUSB and transmit data through Bluetooth 4.0 . Likewise, it offers a 3.5 mm Mini Jack port to listen to music or videos through headphones. An interesting section is that it includes a reset button , a function that almost does not include any terminal and that can be very useful if the equipment gets hung up. This button will allow you to reset the factory data and keep your tablet running smoothly. All these connections are on one side of the device so that they do not hinder the use of the terminal and it remains manageable.
As for its autonomy , the device has 6,000 milliamps , which represent about thirteen hours running without draining the battery so. In this way, it is a perfect tablet for long trips , since it can resist being turned on for long periods of time.
Price and reviews
The Woxter Nimbus 102 Q is now available for the modest price of 179 euros . It is a perfect device for those who are looking for the maximum benefits at an affordable cost .
Thus, although it limps in some points, such as the camera, it solves it with its large 10.1-inch screen , the applications that come standard and the connections it offers . It is ideal to entertain you on long trips. It can also be useful if you live far away and are one of those who usually carry a device with you since, apart from being a particularly elegant tablet, it only weighs 498 grams and is 7.8 millimeters thick . In short, a very balanced terminal .
