Video: first 7-inch tablet with Windows 8
At Computex was shown the first 7-inch tablet with Windows 8 and the recently announced Intel Atom Bay Trail. The device is not a product for the end user, but gives a clear view about how some will look similar tablets, when they will begin to appear on the market at the end of this year.
Video on German site Mobile Geeks demonstrates tablet codenamed Lyon, developed by Taiwanese company Inventec. The device features a 7″ IPS display with a resolution of 1280×800 pixels, 2 GB of RAM, SSD drive 64/128 GB and a slot for microSD. Interestingly, this is the first car with the new Bay Trail processor with four cores with a frequency of 1.66 GHz.
The case thickness is 11 mm and weighs 470 grams, battery with a very humble capacity – 2400 mAh, which is barely enough for 5 hours of work in standby mode, but the commercial samples are likely to be equipped with more powerful solutions.
Inventec is probably going to offer this tablet under the brand name of one of the most popular hardware vendors. And although the video Lyon is running Windows 8, the device will come with Windows 8.1 on Board, and Microsoft Office. More photos of the tablet you’ll find on the website.
