Sound

With built-in Dolby

Enjoy extraordinarily immersive, distortion-free sound. With built-in Dolby, lower frequencies seem sharper and dialogues appear cleaner and noise-free, while you can even adapt the various audio profiles to suit your activity and adjust the volume level to your liking. All this, combined with the Mali 400 graphics processor, means gaming on the bq Maxwell 2 Quad Core is a truly spectacular experience.

Dolby

* Exclusive to Quad Core models.

Casing

Designed to be functional

For a tablet to have great functionality, size and weight are important but design is the main factor. That’s why the bq Maxwell 2 Quad Core’s On/Off button and volume controls are located in the top right corner of the device, where you’d instinctively expect to find them.

All the connectors are located on the left, so they don’t get in the way when you’re using the tablet while charging it or listening to music through your headphones.

The finish of the casing improves adherence and stops it from sliding out of your hands, as well as being more resistant to scratching. Plus, the bezel is exactly the right size to minimise the tablet’s dimensions while ensuring your finger doesn’t stray onto the screen when you hold it.

7”, 360 g

Featherweight

7 inches, 360 grams and designed to fit perfectly in the palm of your hand: the bq Maxwell 2 Quad Core is the ideal tablet if mobility is your number-one priority. Because updating your profiles, checking your e-mail, reading articles online or watching your favourite movies is so much easier when you have your tablet with you 24 hours a day.

4,300 mAh battery / Energy-saving system

More fun for more hours

Sometimes, the full power of the processor isn’t needed for lighter tasks. That’s why bq has designed an energy-saving system that reduces CPU performance for activities that require fewer resources. Combined with a readjustment of display brightness levels, you could extend battery life by up to 20-25%. Activate this feature and enjoy more hours of watching movies, using your favourite apps, commenting on Facebook, chatting, reading books, playing Triviados… more hours of fun that consume less battery life and let you go for longer between charges.

CPU / eMMC

Power at your service

Size doesn’t reflect power. Thanks to its four processor cores, running up to speeds of 1.6 Ghz, the bq Maxwell 2 Quad Core boasts minimal response time, super-fast browsing and extremely fluid multimedia playback. Even multitasking is fast and responsive. CPU operation is optimised even further thanks to the use of eMMC internal memory, a new standard that frees up CPU power by handling storage management autonomously. And all this comes with a much longer battery life, thanks to the CPU’s base architecture designed to minimise energy consumption.

7” HD IPS screen

HD IPS screen. Small, but perfectly formed

An IPS screen is an amazing experience. Colours are richer and more vibrant than on other LCD screens, with tones that respect the intensity of the original image without degrading and are neither pallid nor over-saturated. This translates into photos and videos that appear sharper, deeper and free from chromatic distortion. And as an IPS screen has higher resolution and contrast levels than other screens, text is better-defined, too.

16:10

The panoramic 16:10 format offers the very best multimedia experience. Videos make full use of the display format and occupy the entirety of the screen, without any black bars at the edges.

178º

LCD screens suffer from a reduced viewing angle. When you incline the tablet, the content on the screen is no longer visible. However, the bq Maxwell 2 Quad Core boasts an IPS screen with a 178-degree viewing angle, meaning you can see what’s on the screen from any position: lying down, leaning over or laying back.

GPS + Glonass

Perfect for navigation – inside and out

Both the dimensions and the design of the bq Maxwell 2 Quad Core make it the perfect choice for on-board navigation. Its matt casing optimises adherence to the support and prevents it from moving around while the vehicle is in transit; and even more importantly, it’s designed on the inside to give you the very best navigation experience. It’s compatible with all Android GPS navigation apps, both free and paid-for, as well as the Russian satellite-navigation system GLONASS.

Operating system

Android 4.2

Improved control gestures

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

Multi-user support

Share your tablet with your family and friends easily and securely. The multi-user option offered by Android 4.2 lets you create up to three different accounts on the same device, so that different users can customise it to their liking with their own accounts, apps and wallpaper.

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

Type by swiping your finger across the screen. The system automatically forms the words and inserts spaces wherever needed.

OTA/S.O

Total integration

The bq Maxwell 2 Quad Core’s system of updates has been designed from scratch by bq. It is an OTA (Over The Air) system that alerts you when a new update is 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 engineers, ensuring full integration between the updates and the firmware.

Only the essential apps

bq tablets only include the essential apps. We don’t add bloatware that consumes resources and is of no use to you. Your device, your apps.

Connectivity

BluetoothTM

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

MicroUSB-OTG

Make your bq Maxwell 2 Quad Core even more interactive by connecting peripherals such as a mouse, keyboard or 3G modem to its MicroUSB-OTG port.

Who was James Clerk Maxwell?

“The work of James Clerk Maxwell changed the world forever”. Albert Einstein.

Edinburgh (Scotland), 13 June 1831
Cambridge (England), 5 November 1879

Maxwell achieved what is considered the second great unification in physics. He collated all the theories, experiments and laws that had been formulated to date on electricity, magnetism and optics and created a single, unified theory demonstrating that electricity, magnetism and light are all manifestations of the same phenomenon: the electromagnetic field.
