Windows 8 Tablets at MWC 2014: All That’s New
This year, just like the two years before, I am going to attend the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and I will make sure to report on the latest new Windows 8 tablets that will get unveiled. So, bookmark this article as it will constantly get updated with new Windows 8 tablets that will get announced.
A while ago, I was sharing tips on how to get to the Mobile World Congress 2014 location in Barcelona, as well as the most important schedules and events. It’s 22 February already and the event kickstarts tomorrow with a lot of interesting mobile news that will impact users from around the entire world. Our job will be to find all the Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 new tablets and put them all in a single place to make it easier for your readers to decide what they are interested in and what’s ‘meh’. We will also do our best to get high-quality pictures and videos, instead of dull press photos.
All the new Windows tablets at MWC 2014
Why ‘Windows tablets’ and not Windows 8 tablets? Well, because there might be some that will insist that Windows RT is still good, which I strongly disagree with, and, technically, all the new Windows 8 tablets that will get launched will come with Windows 8.1 preinstalled, so it’s not quite Windows 8.1. So, stay tuned as this post will be constantly updated once we hear the first details.
New Windows 8.1 tablets from HP
This is a cool Windows 8.1 convertible tablet that can be used in 4 modes, pretty much like Lenovo’s Yoga product. It comes with a 11 inch IPS screen that has a resolution of 1,366 x 768, Intel Pentium-series Bay Trail CPU, a 500GB hard drive, Beats Audio and a 2-cell battery. The best part, however, is its price – less than $400.
One of the first Windows 8.1 tablets to make use of Intel’s 64-bit Bay Trail chip structure, it also comes with the following features: 10.1-inch display with a resolution of 1900 x 1200, Qualcomm Gobi 4G LTE, and 64GB or 128GB of storage.
HP ProPad 600
Just announced and not currently available, the HP ProPad 600 Windows 8.1 tablet comes with an Intel Atom quad-core processor of an unspecified frequency and a ‘long’ battery life. It has a 10.1-inch 1920 x 1200 WUXGA display and comes with built-in micro-HDMI.
