Microsoft’s Surface series is generally quite well received by the audience in almost all markets it sells in. However, Chinese companies think that they can replicate almost any device — with a better price.
This time around we have the Vido W10 Elite, which is a Microsoft Surface 3 wannabe that doesn’t cost too much money. To be specific, it costs around the $350 mark, and even features a Surface 3-style keyboard (which unfortunately needs to be bought separate).
The Vido W10 Elite comes with a 10.1-inch 1920 x 1200 pixel IPS display, an Intel Atom x7 Z8700 processor, 4GB RAM, 128GB ROM, a 5 mega-pixel (autofocus) rear camera, 2 mega-pixel front facing camera and a 7300mAh battery. It even features a USB Type-C port and 2.4GHz/5GHz WiFi.
It’s a bit of a shame that the keyboard isn’t a part of the retail package, especially since we’re talking about a device that costs over $300. Speaking of accessories, Vido also make a touch stylus that you can purchase additionally.
Seems a bit pricey for now, hoping the factory and its partners realise this and bring the price down to about $250 in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, more tablet news here.
