Technology is becoming more affordable by the day, with prices on smartphones and tablets decreasing fast. Such is the case with Windows tablet, as well. Take for example this Windows 8.1 tablet coming from far East China – the Pipo W5.

It is available for Chinese customers at a price of just $150 and features an 8-inch touchscreen display with support for pressure-sensitive writing or drawing with a digital pen. It features a 1280 x 800 resolution, which is exactly what you get for this price. But it’s nice that it comes with a smartpen, as well, as you can see it pictured here.

The tablet is powered by an Intel Atom Z3735G quad-core processor and runs Windows 8.1 with Bing, of course. On the inside, we find 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, which are rather decent specs and 2GB of RAM should be enough to help you accomplish basic tasks, such as browsing, watching movies or playing casual games.

The Pipo tablet also has two cameras, a 5MP one on the back and 2MP up on front. A 4500 mAh battery is powering the device, which should be able to get it throughout the day. However, we’re not sure whether this device will make its way into global stores, but international users can get it for a slightly bigger price if we consider shipping costs, as well.
