Pantel Technologies, known for its affordable Penta Tablets in India has launched a new tablet in the country in partnership with Intel and Microsoft. The Penta WS802X is claimed to be the India’s first Windows 10 Tablet. It is exclusively available to purchase on the HomeShop E-Store for a price of Rs 5499. This budget priced tablet would empower consumers in the country to have access to desktop-like computing.
The Penta WS802X sports an 8-inch IPS display with a display resolution of 1280 x 800, which is slightly better than a 720p resolution. Housing just minimum specifications to run the Windows 10, the device is powered by an Intel Atom Processor clocking at 1.3GHz. It is a quad-core chipset coupled with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, which is expandable up to 64GB via microSD card slot.
Mr. Vijender Singh, Managing Director, Pantel Technologies said, “Pantel is proud to launch Penta WS802X with Intel and Microsoft in the market. We want our products to reach one and all without compromising on their budget. We also look forward to introduce more innovative and affordable products.”
In terms of the cameras, the Penta tablet has 2-megapixel image sensor on the rear while there is a same 2-megapixel sensor on the front as well. They would not give you incredible imaging outputs but should be good enough to capture casual photos, or make video calls. We are not sure, but Microsoft might have pre-installed Skype application on this tablet, which would allow you to do video conferencing and many other things by using the front and rear cameras.
Regarding the connectivity features, it offers plenty of functions including Wi-Fi, microUSB port, Bluetooth, USB OTG and a 3G dongle support as well. We would have also liked if the company has offered an SIM slot on this tablet like they offer on Penta T-Pad WS704Q, which was launched in September. Because these days, people appreciate the fact that they can have everything on a tablet, watch movie, do work, and even make calls on the go.
Coming to the battery capacity of the device, it has a 4000mAh battery that should be more than enough to last the day on an average usage. The device would be coming with some free accessories like a keyboard attachment and a Bluetooth mouse, which Rs 2000 worth. Also, you’ll be getting MS Office bundled with tablet. It would be interesting to see how this tablet would work in real life and empower consumers with desktop-like computing.
