XOLO getting ready to launch first Windows tablet in India
The Win has a standard form factor, 10.1-inch, 1280x800 screen. Underneath is a dual-core AMD A4-1200 CPU tuned to 1.0GHz (known as “Temash”) coupled with Radeon HD 8180G graphics.
That hardware manages Windows 8.1 with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. Weighing in at just over a pound-and-a-half (750g), the Win is about 15mm thick also houses a USB 2.0, 3,550mAh battery (good for about 6 hours), a 2MP main camera, and a 1MP front facing camera.
It is officially “coming soon” and is expected to cost about ₹22,000 ($360). Unlike most devices that come with the full version of Windows however, the Win will come bundled with Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013 as part of the package. That places the Win at the top price point of its tablet offerings, but there is no apples-to-apples comparison to be made beyond that.
What the XOLO Win might lose in beauty points, it picks up in value. The basic build factor and bundled software suite should find the Win with a receptive audience.

And then again, the OS in the XOLO Win is excellent both in productivity and entertainment so it runs a versatile and better OS compared to the OS in the XOLO Play Tegra Note. The XOLO Win can also run billions of legacy apps.

The millions of people who use android and ios could care less about the s**tty legacy apps of windows running on a desktop environment that microsoft can't make up its mind on what to do with.

"Underneath is a dual-core AMD A4-1200 CPU "
why XOLO, why....
also $360 is not that great of a price, for around the same you get a Asus T100 with keyboard dock

$360 for something with the specs of something that would be priced at $80 in Grocery Outlet or something.
