Now that companies have realized that it is Windows tablets that buyers want, they’re starting to experiment with the hardware.
After 2GB RAM tablets took over the world (figuratively speaking, of course), its now the turn of inexpensive 4GB RAM devices to start making an appearance. While we’ve seen some in the past as well, the Pipo W1S looks interesting because it’s fairly affordable.
At $233, the Pipo W1S brings a Windows 10 machine with 4GB RAM, 64GB on-board storage and an Intel Atom X5-Z8300 to the table. Other specifications of this new tablet include a 10.1 inch 1920 x 1200 pixel display, an Intel HD Graphic (Gen8) GPU, and a 6000mAh battery. There’s a couple of cameras on there too: a 5 mega-pixel rear, and a 2 mega-pixel front facing sensor.
Gizchina News of the week
As mentioned before, the W1S runs Windows 10 out of the box.
For now, the Pipo W1S can be pre-ordered for $233. 16th November is when the device is expected to start shipping, so if you’re in for an early Christmas gift this season, the Pipo W1S might be something worth considering.
A dual booth version of this kind of configuration won’t be bad. Chuwi, hope u are seeing this
I believe there will be a dual boot version before Xmas as that’s what I’m in the market for.
yes still waiting for a good dual boot tablet with core M and 3g/4G connectivity/support …its such a pity that tablets are less competitive than phones … hope next mipad also have 3g/4G capability and a deal breaker specs with amazing price
Z8300 supports 2G ram only, how come so many Chinese tablets equip it with 4G ram?
maybe use 2pcs of 2gb ram slot..and somehow connecting them that cpu won’t find it unacceptable to operate with..its china we are talking about..a country where many impossible things had become possible(like mtk6795 with QHD and ……)
Don’t trust Pipo after bad experience with pipo P1 tablet. Very bad quality of WiFi and audio parts.
Had a Pipo W3f and everything was good.
Hope there’s a trip… I mean dual-boot variant
this cpu support max 2GB and not 4GB, if it had Atom X5-Z8500, then yes 4GB.
if the screen had 13′ and above, for this price, i would have buy it right now.
6000mah seems a bit small for thath size tablet
if only they include a wacom/ntrig digitizer….it was perfect!
Should have a look at the cube i7 stylus, a bit expensive but the hardware is a lot more faster than any atom. Core M 5Y10, though lower clocked is uses a lot more powerful of an architecture than that found in the atoms.
Chuwi Hi10 is still better option for me
