* Exclusive to Quad Core models.

CPU

Quad Core Cortex up to 1.6 GHz. Smart power

The bq Edison 2 Quad Core boasts speeds of up to 1.6 GHz and, as its name implies, incorporates four cores on a single chip. This, combined with the tablet’s specially adapted architecture and Android 4.2 to make optimum use of these features, gives the tablet truly spectacular levels of speed and fluidity. For activities that consume a lot of energy, such as power-hungry apps or streaming video, your device will use all four of its cores. However, for activities that don't require high performance it will only use the cores that are necessary. This way, it only consumes the resources it really needs, thereby optimising battery life.

The processor of the bq Edison 2 Quad Core is made to be energy-efficient. Its high performance does not come at the expense of battery life.

GPU

Mali 400 up to 600 MHz

Enjoy an authentic gaming experience with the bq Edison 2 Quad Core. Its 10.1-inch screen combines with a 600 MHz GPU to offer seamlessly fluid performance, even with the most graphically demanding games.

eMMC memory

Improved storage management

The bq Edison 2 Quad Core includes eMMC internal memory. This new storage standard makes life easier for the CPU by managing storage operations independently, which allows the CPU to focus on other tasks and improves the overall performance of the tablet.

10,1’’| IPS 178º | 16:10 | 1280 x 800 px

10.1’’, 178° IPS screen

Full-on full-screen

16:10 is the best format for viewing videos and movies. You can enjoy them in full-screen format, without those annoying upper and lower black bars that steal screen space and make viewing less comfortable. Browsing and gaming are also improved, resulting in perfect harmonisation between the display and the application. Plus, the tablet’s 1280 x 800 px resolution adds the finishing touch to a full-on, full-screen user experience.

10.1 inches of pure fun

Movies and videos that look almost real, images that are more lifelike than ever before, and games boasting a spectacular palette of colour… the bq Edison 2 Quad Core’s 10.1-inch, high-def IPS screen makes it the ideal tablet for multimedia activities and browsing the Internet. What’s more, thanks to its 178° viewing angle you’ll have a perfect view of the screen from any position, with no blind spots.

Battery with energy savings

A battery that’s up to the job

8600 mAh battery

A capacity of 8600 mAh means longer battery life and longer-lasting power. The bq Edison 2 Quad Core's 10.1 inch IPS screen and four processor cores demand high performance. Fortunately, its 8,600 mAh battery is more than up to the task.

Energy-saving mode

bq’s team of engineers has developed an energy-saving system you can activate in order to slow the processor down for less demanding tasks. This extends battery life without having any impact on performance. This, combined with readjusting screen brightness levels, can extend battery life by 20-25%.

Android 4.2 Jelly Bean

Improved control gestures

You can pull down the notifications bar by sliding a finger across the upper left-hand area of your tablet’s screen. Swipe to the right to bring up the panel of general system settings.

Widgets on the lock screen

Place your favourite widgets on the lock screen so that you can access them directly, without having to enter your unlock pattern or password.

Keyboard with gesture typing

Gesture typing lets you write by swiping your finger across the screen in an unbroken movement. The keyboard detects your words and inserts spaces wherever they’re needed.

Multi-user support

Sharing your tablet with your friends or family is now convenient and secure. Android 4.2's multi-user option allows you to create as many accounts as you like on a single device, so that different users can personalise them by adding their own accounts, apps and wallpaper. Plus, children's accounts can be configured by an adult to guarantee the security of the youngest users.

Operating System

OTA

bq tablets are updated OTA (Over The Air). The device alerts you when new firmware becomes available and allows you to install it directly onto your tablet. Both the OTA system and the updates are developed by bq’s team of Spanish engineers, ensuring full integration between the updates and the firmware.

Only the essential apps

bq devices only include the essential apps that allow you to use your tablet straight out of the box. We don’t add apps that consume resources and are of no use to you. Your device, your apps.

Connectivity

Bluetooth

Share content on your bq Edison 2 Quad Core with other devices quickly and easily. Activate their Bluetooth connections, synchronise the devices and voila! You can transfer any file in a matter of seconds – with no need for cables or Internet connections.

MicroUSB-OTG

Connect a mouse, keyboard, USB or 3G modem* to your device via the Micro-USB OTG port for greater interactivity and an experience that’s even more complete. The size of the bq Edison 2 Quad Core makes it the perfect device to use as a computer, in combination with the appropriate peripherals.

Dual 1080p HDMI

Connect your device to a TV using an HDMI cable, and the tablet’s Dual technology will allow you to continue using your device while the image is reproduced on the tablet and TV simultaneously.

Edison 2 3G Quad Core / Edison 2 3G

Unlimited connectivity with 3G

Enjoy streaming episodes of your favourite series, read the latest news and articles on the Net, chat with your contacts in real time and check your social networks and email accounts. All this, whenever and wherever you want.

Thanks to the Edison 2 Quad Core’s 3G connectivity, you don’t need a Wi-Fi network to get the most out of your tablet.

Plus, its 2 GB of RAM optimise multi-tasking and help make even the most demanding applications more fluid.

GPS and GLONASS technology

Although the GPS can detect the device’s geographical location, the tablet also has a built-in eCompass, a digital compass that informs the GPS which direction the tablet is facing, which enables the navigator to specify precisely which route should be taken.

Who was Thomas Alva Edison?

“Genius is one per cent inspiration and ninety-nine per cent perspiration.”

Milan, Ohio (United States), 11 February 1847
West Orange, New Jersey (United States), 18 October 1931

Edison is considered one of the foremost inventors of the 20th century. He patented over one thousand inventions during his lifetime, including the electric light bulb, the phonograph, the alkaline battery and the electric car. As a homage to his achievements after his death all the lights in various different cities were switched off for one minute.
