German tablet manufacturer Kupa is taking aim at Microsoft’s forthcoming Surface Pro tablet with a new convertible Windows 8 tablet for business users.
Initially branded as the Kupa UltraNote when it demoed at MobileCon 2012, the X15 tablet comes as standard with a 10.1-inch 1920 x 1200 resolution IPS display, Windows 8 Pro, 8GB of RAM, dual-facing cameras, a fingerprint scanner and Bluetooth 4.0.
There are four different configurations to choose from, and this allows buyers to pick from 64GB SSD up to 128GB SSD or go with an Intel Core i5 or i7 processor. The former processor is available through the Elite, Pro and Lux models, while the i7 comes with the high-end Ultra tablet.
All four models sport HSPA+ connectivity, which is something of a step back considering the UltraNote did boast both LTE connectivity and NFC back at the MobileCon conference.
The UltraNote is now available from the Kupa website, with prices starting at $1,100 and rising to $1,600 for the Intel Core i7 model.
