Blackview unveils $160 10.1-inch Android 10 tablet

Looking for a new Android tablet? The Blackview Tab 8 offers a lot of power for the price.

In a market dominated by the iPad, Android tablets are somewhat thin on the ground, with the Kindle Fire probably being one of your best options. But now Blackview -- a company better known for its rugged smartphones with integrated FLIR thermal cameras -- has unveiled a new Android 10 tablet.

The Tab 8 is a budget-friendly tablet for those looking to stream movies and TV shows, email, edit documents, browse the web, e-read, and game. The Tab 8 features a 10.1-inch 1200 by 1920 pixel FHD display, a 1.6GHz octa-core Unisoc SC9863A with 8 ARM Cortex-A55 cores in two clusters, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage with support for a TF Card to 128GB.

And, yes, there's an earphone jack.

Also present is a dual nano-SIM tray, so you can pop in a SIM or two and hook up to a cellular network.
