Gigabyte, has launched a new tablet. The 10.1 inch tablet, the S1080 features a Windows 7 operating system and is powered by an Intel Atom N550 dual core processor.
“The S1080 is designed to be the ultimate mobile device to fit the demanding needs of consumers who need a high-performing multitasking slate that offers the full productivity of a PC,” Stephen Lee, sales director at Gigabyte Notebooks said.
The tablet weighs under 0.90kg (1.98lb) and has 320GB of built-in storage, which is massive in comparison to tablets available in the market.
Other features incorporated in the tablet are USB 3.0 port, built-in VGA port (no HDMI), Wifi and Bluetooth.
Display has a multi-touch backlight TFT-LCD with 1024×600 resolution. For on-screen navigation, Windows 7 on-screen keyboard and handwriting recognition software is present along with a more traditional, navigator button and left and right mouse buttons.
The tablet is expected to be priced at around $300 (Rs 13,600) when it is available in the market starting next month. Availability in India is not yet known but we see no reason why it won’t be launched here.
If it is made available in India at even slightly higher price than that, it will certainly be a good bargain.
