We know that Microsoft wants to make Windows 8 and the upcoming Windows 10 as popular possible and that’s why the company is offering it for free on small devices. But this tablet is incredibly cheap – can it be real?

What you’re seeing above is the screenshot of a Windows 8.1 tablet that appeared at the recent HKTDC tech show in Hong Kong. You’ll excuse my bombastic title, but this is unbelievable – it can be yours for just $65, which, lets’s agree, is even cheaper than a pair of sneakers! The tablet carries the bane Emdoor EM-I8170 and features a 7″ 1024 x 600 pixel display.
This basically confirms a previous rumor when we were saying that full Windows 8 tablets cheaper than $100 are on their way. It sports an Intel Z3735G quad-core Bay Trail processor, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. The company has received over 50,000 orders for the tablet already and by looking at the specs and looking at the price, then it’s no wonder!
The tablet also comes with 3G, which is just as impressive, if we consider that you can stick a SIM, as well. However, we’re wondering how exactly such a tablet feels in the hand of the user. Because, even if it’s dirty cheap, but if it will lag or slow down, it will be a big no-no for those who’re trying it for the first time.
HP has recently launched the $99 Stream 7 Windows 8.1 tablet with the Atom Z3735G SoC quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM. But the problem is that while they are cheap, this isn’t the price that is the same for all the countries in the world.
