The Nintendo Switch took the world by storm when it was announced as the successor to Nintendo’s less-than-successful Wii U. The Switch merged console experiences on your television with the convenience of portability. So what better to do than make a knockoff of it with Windows instead? Enter the Vastking G800, China’s answer to the Switch.
Internally the Vastking G800 is equipped with an Intel Pentium N4200 quad-core Apollo Lake processor capable of running Microsoft’s latest Windows 10 operating system and the 8 inch IPS display offers users a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. Storage takes the form of 32 GB of internal disk space which can be expanded even by installing a solid state drive (SSD).
Vastking hopes to sell the tablet for about $300 per unit… but that’s the wholesale price for customers that order 1,000 units. So expect the retail price to be substantially higher if and when this tablet comes to market. Vastking hasn’t announced a release date for the G800 yet but it is expected to arrive next year.
