If you are looking to get in to the Windows tablet market, but don’t want to shell our for a big name brand, the Pipo W2 is a good stepping stone at only $130.
When we hear the name Pipo we generally picture Android tablets, but recently we have seen the company take steps to secure themselves a place in the Windows tablet market.
The Pipo W2 is Pipo’s affordable entry-level Windows tablet and ships with Windows 8.1 running on a quad-core Intel Z3735F processor and 2GB RAM all for only $130!
Specification include support for a 3G USB dongle, 5 mega-pixel man camera, 2 mega-pixel front and 8-inch, 1280 x 800 WXGA 5 point IPS display. If you should find that panel too small for home use there is also a HDMI port so you can hook the W2 to your TV for a larger picture.
A single Micro SD slot allows you to add additional memory should 32GB not be enough, and a micro USB lets you connect a keyboard, mouse or game controller.
The compact body of the 8-inch tablet would make it great for lugging about, but we are concerned that the battery is only 4500mAh, and are not sure how long you will be able to stay away from a wall socket during daily use.
The Pipo W2 is on sale through reseller site Gearbest for $130.
