Chinese manufacturer Vido releases three Windows 8.1 tablets

Windows tablets are fairly uncommon in China, most likely due to the licensing costs. Microsoft has however tried to make licensing cheaper, such as offering Windows for free on devices smaller than 9 inches, and also offering Windows 8.1 with Bing as a cheaper option to the standard licenseThis provides some alternatives to the extremely dominant Android OS which manufacturers have often used to be able to compete in the cut-throat market East and South Asian markets. Some Chinese manufacturers do dabble into Windows tablets, however, and one of these manufacturers is named Vido.

Vido has released three separate Windows 8.1 tablets, however they are not organized into specific, separate tiers. All three of the tablets come with 2 megapixel front and rear cameras, however the camera is the only part of the hardware specifications they share.

The first is the Vido W11C, which sports:

  • 2GB RAM (DDRL3)
  • 64GB storage
  • 1900 x 1200px 10.1" IPS display (223 PPI)
  • Intel Atom Bay Trail Z3735D (quadcore, up to 1.83 GHz)
  • 8400mAh battery capacity
  • Huawei UltraStick 3G support and GPS

It is priced at ¥1999 (USD $319.81).

The second is the Vido W11 Pro, which features:

  • 2GB RAM (DDRL3)
  • 64GB storage
  • 1900 x 1200px 10.1" IPS display (223 PPI)
  • Intel Atom Bay Trail Z3740D (quadcore, up to 2.39Ghz) 
  • 8000mAh battery capacity
  • Huawei UltraStick 3G support and GPS

Pricing is unclear for this product.

The third and final tablet, the Vido W10 Pro, carries:

  • 4GB RAM (DDRL3)
  • 64GB storage
  • 1280 x 800px 10.1" display
  • Intel Atom Bay Trail Z3770 (quadcore, up to 2.39Ghz)
  • Two full-sized USB ports
  • 802.11ac support
  • 8000mAh battery capacity
  • Huawei UltraStick 3G support and GPS

It is priced at ¥2699.00 (USD $431.80)

They appear to weigh in at around 548g (1.2 lbs), and are 10mm at their thickest points. Based on the color schemes, they appear to have been heavily influenced by Nokia's Lumia and Microsoft Surface ranges, and they also feature a keyboard case very similar to that of the Microsoft Surface. The Vido W11C and W11 Pro have the bright red/yellow/blue cases of the Lumia range, and the W10 Pro has the magnesium alloy that the Microsoft Surface sports.
