In the world of inexpensive tablets, Android powered devices have been leading the way. Unfortunately, the word ‘cheap’ sometimes refers not only to the price tag, but also to the overall build quality and user experience with low end hardware. A new Microsoft Windows tablet is hitting store, probably not near you, that clocks in at about $48, but is it worth looking at?
The inexpensive new tablet is the Ployer MOMO7W, a 7-inch Windows tablet with 1024×600 screen resolution, an Intel Atom Bay Trail processor with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.

It can be a challenge for small-to-medium-sized-businesses (SMBs) to pick a mobile platform because the decision involves more than just choosing a device. The new generation of lightweight tablets provides unprecedented mobility for sales people, executives and others, but whether model X integrates with your current infrastructure, is easily managed and offers compatibility with the software you’re already using is another matter.
Most SMBs don’t have big IT staffs or the time and resources to adapt their networks and train staff to support new, incompatible devices. A ready solution comes in the form of Windows 8 tablets favored by a growing [...]
There was a time a hundred bucks might get you a decent computer accessory like a high end mouse, or speakers, but a full-fledged computer? Unheard of until now.
Recent price breakthroughs in Intel-based tablets and special offers from Microsoft have produced a slew of great tablet deals at $100-$200 for full-fledged Windows 8.1 tablets in the 7- to 8-inch display range.

TabTimes got the chance to go hands-on with the Toughpad 4K UT-MB4, the world’s first 20-inch 4K tablet, at IFA and we were impressed with the staggering 3840 x 2560 IPS display, the powerful Intel Core i5 vPro processor, the ample 256GB of storage and the super precise (but optional) stylus pen.
The good news is that the tablet is finally heading over to U.S. shores and is expected to launch in January 2014. The bad news is that the model starts at $5,999, so expect customers to continue to be big brands like Prada, Ferrari and Lamborghini as they look to jazz up their showrooms.
The tablet, which was announced at IFA back in September, offers an 8-inch 1280 x 800 resolution IPS display, runs Windows 8.1 and comes pre-installed with Microsoft Office 2013 Home & Student. It also boasts an Intel Atom Z3740 quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.
In addition, buyers will find dual-facing cameras (8MP rear camera and 2MP front-facing camera), dual microphones and connections for micro HDMI, micro USB and an micro SD card.
"Our competitors chased netbooks," said Cook. "Now they're busy making PCs into tablets and tablets into PCs," he added, in reference to hybrid tablet and what Intel is calling 2-in-1 portables.
"Competitors are confused," he said. "We believe deeply in this category and we're not slowing down on our innovation."
