The $299 Chuwi Hi12 Windows 10 tablet packs serious hardware

Chuwi is not a name most people will be familiar with, but the Chinese vendor has announced a Windows 10 tablet that merits attention. The Chuwi Hi12 — which is set to make its official debut on January 28 — offers a 12-inch display with a resolution of 2160 x 1440, Cherry Trail CPU, and a magnetic docking keyboard.

The specs include a 1.44GHz quad-core Cherry Trail Z8300 CPU with Intel's Gen8 iGPU, 4GB of RAM, 64GB internal storage, 5MP camera at the back, 2MP front camera, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI out, one USB 3.0 port, one USB 2.0 port, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, and a 11000mAh battery.

All this for just $299, which makes it a rather enticing proposition. Chuwi claims that the Hi12 will also offer dual-boot capabilities at a later date, allowing you to switch to Android 5.1.

We'll be getting our hands on a review unit of the Chuwi Hi12, so stay tuned for in-depth coverage of the tablet. Based on the hardware on offer and the price, what do you guys think of the tablet?
