The new one arrives bq Aquaris M8 tablet, with a smaller screen but with quite competitive features for its reduced price. The world of Android tablets seemed stopped but Christmas is approaching and you have to start offering new devices to convince those users who do not know what to give or simply want to have a larger screen to read or watch videos.
Precisely thinking of these users is where the new bq Aquaris M8 appears, a new component of the Spanish manufacturer's family.
bq Aquaris M8, features and technical specifications
The bq Aquaris M8 is a tablet with an eight-inch screen with HD resolution. Inside we find a MediaTek quad-core processor, powerful enough to watch videos and play the most classic games and cheap enough so that the official price of this tablet does not rise above two hundred euros.
We have a very typical bq design: Dragontrail protection, back cover that repels dirt, protection against fingerprints and some pretty classic lines. No stridencies or complications.
The tablet does want to stand out in an essential aspect in these devices, the sound. Two speakers are incorporated, a sound amplification chip is added to maintain good fidelity and incorporated microHDMI to easily connect it to a TV or external display, in addition to having microUSB OTG to add mice or keyboards. In short, small additions that most tablets have but should not be missing even if the price is lower.

bq Aquaris M8 tablet, availability and price

Not bad to have an updated device, with a good battery and a sufficiently manageable screen for most tasks.
