Upgrade To Windows 8
The internationally acclaimed trade show IFA Berlin has been officially inaugurated. It is believed that a slew of Microsoft products will steal this year’s show. As it had been reported earlier, Microsoft is all set to introduce its low-priced Windows 8 tablets at the show. The key attraction of these Windows 8 upgrade tablets is that they are small and therefore are easy for handling.
Interestingly, Microsoft has a number of rivals who will also deliver Windows 8.1 powered tablets. Acer and Toshiba with their low-priced Windows 8.1 tablets ($150 and $120 respectively) have already made their presence felt. Other popular brands such as Dell and HP are also going to introduce some budget tablets at this year’s IFA Berlin show. Surprisingly, most of these tablets share some similarities with each other. They come either in 8-inch or 7-inch screen ranges and sport Intel Atom Soc processor mostly.
Get a Windows 8.1 device at $120
To reach the maximum number of customers, Microsoft campaigns its products with the tagline ‘Get a Windows 8.1 device at just $120′. Obviously, Microsoft wants to belittle the Android powered low budget tablets with its low-priced but feature rich Windows 8.1 tablets and most interestingly, the fact that these tablets run the latest Windows 8.1 OS make them superior to the Android tablets.
Encore Mini to be launched as the first Windows 8 powered tablet
Surprisingly, Microsoft won’t be the brand that rolls out the first Windows 8 tablet at the show. The Windows 8.1 powered Encore Mini tablet by Toshiba will announce the first Windows 8.1 tablet at this year’s show. The key features of this low-budget tablet include 7-inch display, 1 GB of RAM, quad-core Bay Trail SoC and 16GB of built-in storage. The storage can be expanded. Nevertheless, report has it that this particular product won’t allure many users as it has already been blamed for its not-so-pleasant viewing angles.
Windows 8 Features
Interestingly, this tablet seems to have better connectivity options than other tablets that come in the same price range. Bluetooth 4.0, Micro SD slot, WiFi, Micro USB 2.0 port etc are among the key features. This Windows 8.1 preinstalled tablet is going to be sold at $120.
