Lower Priced Windows 8 Tablet from China Might Save Windows 8 OS
China wholesale company is selling Windows 8 ready tablets that have twice the power as brand name traders at only half the price.
The Windows tablet seller has launched the Windows 8 Compatible Tablet "Elite", a windows tablet with 32GB of memory, a dual core 1.5GHz Intel CPU and 2GB of RAM.
And with the device being priced at under 500 USD there is nothing else that comes close to matching value for money according to Chinavasion PR Manager Rose Li."If you were looking for a better-known brand name you would have to look at the Acer Iconia which costs 10-20% more," says Li. "Most brand manufacturers put a horrendous premium on Windows 8 devices which is a shame, because it really is a wonderful operating system to use."
International electronics manufacturer lobby IEEE carried out a study with members from the technology firm Oracle on which was the better operating system for tablets; Windows 8, Android 4 and iOS 5.
Reviewers found that Windows 8 was a better platform right across the board according to Li.“Windows 8 has more functions and features than any of the other platforms,” says Li. “It’s a shame then that it doesn’t have the same number of tablet users as either Android or iOS.”
While Windows 8 has only been out for a few months, Li thinks the lack of suitably priced tablets with suitable specifications is a reason for slow pickup.
“As a rule Windows tablet users are paying an extra 100 to 200 more for their devices than Android tablet users,” says Li. “We don’t see any reason for that to happen and that’s something we haven’t done with the Elite.”
With 32GB of storage, a dual core processor and 2GB of RAM the Elite is a veritable powerhouse according to Li, with the tablet offering even more value for money than the latest top of the line iPads.
“A 32GB iPad 2 only has a quarter of the RAM of the Elite but costs 30% more than the Elite,” says Li. “Once you combine that with the multitasking capabilities and true functionality offered by Windows 8 there is really no comparison.”
