After launching the 8” Slide WQ32 3G back in September, iBall is now outing a 10.1-inch 2-in-1 tablet dubbed the Slide WQ149. The latest addition also runs on Windows 8.1 and it’s powered by Intel’s Atom processor with a price tag of Rs 21999.
The iBall Slide WQ149 will go up against the Notion Ink Cain tablet that’s also features a 2-in-1 design and almost identical specs. The latter device has the upper hand since it is a bit cheaper and also flaunts an attractive form factor.
The slate in question comes with an external keyboard which acts as a stand for the main device. While you won’t get a traditional laptop design, the experience should be quite close. The accessory also packs a touchpad, but offers no extra connectivity options or features.
Speaking of which, the slate features a mini-HDMI port, USB OTG support, Wi-Fi b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0. There’s also a SIM card slot for cellular connectivity and data access over 3G. The processor used here is the Intel Atom Z3735D with quad cores and a clock speed of 1.83GHz.
And for memory, the device offers 2GB RAM, 32GB storage and a microSD card slot that supports up to 64GB of memory. iBall is also offer a free license to Microsoft Office, 1TB of OneDrive storage for an entire year and other goodies with the slate.
