Product Description
Idolian MiniTurbo T8

The new MiniTurbo T8 comes with the same look and feel for the original TouchTab but with a number of improvements. The MiniTurbo T8 has a faster Telechips 1.2 Ghz CPU.  The higher processing power is more efficient which helps improve on the overall weight of the device.  The MiniTurbo T8 is 2/3 the weight of the original.   MiniTurbo T8 also comes with a front facing 2.0 megapixel camera for improved resolution.

Pros & Cons
Idolian MiniTurbo T8
 

PROS:

- Weight: The biggest improvement on this device is the weight.  The new MiniTurbo T8 feels almost 1/2 the weight as the TouchTab C8.  I can easily carry it in one hand while reading or at the gym.
- Battery Life: The battery is smaller than the TouchTab C8, but still lasts about 6 hours during light use. Play hours of music or watch a few movies while on a long flight.  This is certainly better than squinting at your SmartPhone screen.
- CPU: The new Telechips 1.2Ghz processor is fast and reliable.  There are other processors that boast 1.2GHz or dual core, but don't deliver.  The new processor can multiple applications and games at the same time without noticably slowing me down.

 

CONS:

- Camera: It has a 2.0 megapixels front facing webcam, Video chat is still not available on Android 2.3 so skype and gchat applications are simply used for instant messaging.
- Button Location: The control buttons on the sides of the device make it difficult to navigate, especially when using it in portrait mode.
- GPS/Bluetooth: Still waiting on TouchTab to come out with GPS version. I don't think it would be really useful unless it was equipped with a 3G plan.
   


Customer Reviews
  Truely a great buy!

this thing is great. It plays everything i threw at it. If you wanna rip a dvd vob files directly to the device and play it, it will play it. No lag whatsoever. Subtitles, great. I really cant say much bc i'm too suprised at it's versatility. I'd ramble all day about hlw great it is. BATT. LIFE.------ SO far on one charge, i have gotten over 5 hours of play and stil have 22 percent left. 33 percent was four hours of watching. Great product

 Soooo Happy with this!
To be clear, this isn't a PC, nor do I expect it to be. It does load up both mobile and 'full' websites and looks just fine in both; so you can browse pretty comfortably. On a regular basis I'll carry it around the house, check email, read e-books, and potentially, load up MP3s and listen to them in the car or at work. Everything else it can do is gravy.

It has no 3G or 4G modem. It also does not have a GPS receiver and no straightforward way to connect an external antenna. That is one thing I would have really liked it to do. So far I have not been able to get the webcam to connect to any video chat client but I only spent a few minutes working at it with Google Chat. Out of the box, all the webcam does is stares back at you, and the photo/video quality isn't the best. I'm pretty confident that can be remedied with some kind of app, either on the web or in one of the app stores. It does not have bluetooth. Many options exist in the slightly-more-expensive $350 range that do include these features; so if you'll use them (as I suspect many folks will), this isn't going to meet your needs. But, just to have a fun around-the-house or around-the-office e-reader, email checker, multimedia player, and basic web surfer, this is absolutely right on the money. And, obviously, it's leaps and bounds better-made (both the hardware and the software) than the stupid "ePad" I bought last year.
