BQ Curie 2, Maxwell 2 and Edison 2: renewed range of Android tablets. In the middle of the usual avalanche of products from Asian and U.S. manufacturers, Spanish industry is also represented in the tablets segment thanks to the work of bq. The Spanish company has just launched the renovation of its main devices of its range of Android tablets, the Curie bq 2 Maxwell Edison 2 and 2, which, in addition to offering significant improvements over the previous generation, like bq maintained by honor the biggest names in the history of science and research.
In general, we say that this new generation of Android tablets bq have experienced a significant number of improvements at the software level, particularly performance and energy savings, with an optimization that allows them to consume 25% less than the versions unprecedented. A similar improvement that is in line than it already offers bq Elcano, a tablet with smartphone functions.
bq Edison 2
The first of the tablets of the firm that we will review is the bq Edison 2, a display device with a 10.1-inch IPS display and a resolution of 1,280 x 800 pixels which replaces Edison bq. A processor level we find a Cortex A9 dual core processor, capable of running at 1.6 GHz, with Mali 400 GPU and 1GB of RAM as well as other 16 GB of internal memory, expandable via microSD card. This team has both WiFi version, with a price of 199.90 euros, and 3G, which goes up to 249.90 euros, the latter adding GLONASS support GPS connectivity.
Curie bq 2
This tablet also has a version with connectivity via WiFi, at a price of 169.90 euros, and over 3G, which goes up to 199.90 euros. As we can guess seeing their prices, specifications are somewhat lower than those of the Edison 2 with IPS HD screen 8-inch with resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels. In regard to its internal architecture remains the Cortex A9 dual core, capable of running at 1.6 GHz, with Mali 400 GPU, and 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage.
Maxwell bq 2
This is the most basic device in this range, a tablet with 7-inch screen, which will come with three versions, the Lite, Basic and Plus. The three variants have the same Cortex A9 dual core, capable of running at 1.6 GHz, the main difference between them solve their screens, which reaches its peak in the 1280 x 800 pixel Plus variant. Prices range from EUR 99.90 to the Lite version of the Plus 139.90, from 119.90 euros for the basic Maxwell 2.
It has confirmed the company, bq tablets Edison Curie 2 and 2 can be purchased in Spain since last June 21, in the authorized retail outlets and through the official website of bq. The offer is completed with the 3G versions Curie Edison 2 and 2 and the three variants of the Maxwell 2, which hit the market in the last days of this month.
