standard Microsoft Takes on Android With Sub $100 Tablets

Finally a good windows table for under $100.  You see a lot of these with the Android operating system.  But not very may with Windows.  It’s nice to see Microsoft isn’t laying down.

They can be a real competitor to Android.  Here’s one of the best examples I could find:


A sensible purchase? Here is a look at a fine example, a Linx 8 purchased from Sainsburys for 89.99 (even better deals are available online). It is one of a range of three, with 7″ and 10″ models also available.

The Linx 8 (bottom left) is cheaper than many Android tablets

What you get is an 8 tablet with a quad-core Intel Atom Z3735F 1.33Ghz chipset, 800×1280 5-point capacitive touchscreen, 1GB RAM and 32GB storage, front and rear 2MP cameras, micro HDMI and micro USB, micro SD slot, audio socket, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Oh, and a bonus of one years subscription to Office 365 personal, worth having considering that it costs 59.99 if you buy it separately. You could argue that if you want Office Personal, you might as well buy the tablet;

Despite the low price, the device is nicely packaged in a strong sleeved box. There is also a 16-page getting started booklet, which states that you can “use the tablet while it is chraging (sic)” so I plugged in and switched on.
