Hands On with the Eve T1, an 8-inch BayTrail tablet

During the past few months, there have been quite a few new small Windows tablets to hit the market. One such device, the Eve T1, has landed on my doorstep and while we get acquainted with the tablet, we have put together a gallery for you below.

The device features an 8in IPS display running at 1280x800, an Intel BayTrail CPU at 1.8GHz, 2GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage, 4300 mAh battery, 5MP rear camera, 2MP front camera, 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, microUSB 2.0 (for charging), 3.5 mm audio jack and support for up to 128Gb SD card. The footprint comes in at 130mm x 216mm x 9mm, but while this tablet is by no means slim, it's not hefty either.

As for cost, the T1 is 159 Euros or $130USD (Eve tells me is no tax on the device if shipped outside of the EU which is why it is cheaper in USD) and is on-sale through the T1 website here.

The device comes in a minimalist looking black box and inside you find the tablet, wall charger and USB cable; there is also a user manual too.

When I picked up the tablet, it instantly reminded me of the Dell Venue 8 Pro that I enjoyed right up until the charging port broke. The back of the device is all plastic but that is expected at this price point, although the rear case is a fingerprint magnet.

The device does not squeak or make unsettling noises when you press around the screen firmly but there is a bit of flexing if you torque on the corners. And the weight gives the tablet a bit of a quality feel to it, despite the plastic case.

The screen is bright and everything seems to be working well so far but we will have to wait until the final review before we decide if this tablet is worthy of a purchase.
