While Chinese tablet makers in Chuwi, Cube, Teclast continue to make hay while the sun shines, smaller brands such as Vido haven’t stopped trying.
The newest from Vido’s stable is the Vido W8C, a strictly budget tablet with Windows running on it. Let us take a deeper look at the tablet, including its specifications.
The Vido W8C comes with the Intel Atom Z3735F SoC, which shipped on a tonne of mini PCs including the very popular MeeGoPad T01 (and the Intel Compute Stick). Along with that, this cost-effective tablet has 1GB of RAM, 16GB of ROM and an SD card slot that can take cards of up to 64GB in capacity.
Making the device handy is an 8-inch screen, which looks to be in 16:10 ratio, thereby making the tablet quite narrow. The display has a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. Also along with the display on the front is a 2 mega-pixel camera, while a 5 mega-pixel autofocus shooter sits on the rear.
All of this is powered by a 3.7v 4000mAh battery. The Vido W8C runs Windows 10 out of the box, and is priced at $76 shipped.
Of late we’ve been seeing a lot of netbooks from Chinese OEMs. This, however, is strictly a tablet meant for non-hardware-intrusive tasks, such as browsing the web, etc.
