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.
