Sub-$70 Windows tablets show up in China
Seeing cheap Windows tablets is not a big surprise, but sub-$70 Intel Bay Trail-powered slates still seem incredibly cheap. Such devices have been spotted at this week's HKTDC show in Hong Kong, and the lowest price is $65 USD.
The Emdoor EM-I8170 is the $65 USD Windows tablet mentioned above and has the following highlights:
- Processor: Intel Atom Z3735G
- Memory/Storage: 1 GB RAM; 16 GB internal storage
- Display: 7-inch touchscreen with 1,024X600 pixels
- Operating system: Windows 8.1
Another similar tablet is being shown by Ployer and carries the same price tag but uses the Intel Atom Z3735F chip and with a larger, 8-inch screen. Unfortunately, no other details are available at this time.
While it is not known when will these tablets hit the US market, it is worth mentioning that sub-$50 Android tablets are already available for purchase. The 7-inch Horus 8 GB tablet from Chinavasion, for example, can be purchased for roughly $45 USD (shipping not included).
