Microsoft Store have started selling a new 8-inch Full HD Windows 10 tablet by the name NuVision TM800 (W560L) for $129 in the US and Canada, and it’s even a Signature Edition tablet, which means that there’s no bloatware or spyware installed, just a clean Windows 10 OS:
NuVision is a California based operation that have previously launched a few Android tablets as well as a few Windows tablets, but this is the first time Microsoft have teamed up to sell their tablets in Microsoft’s stores.
NuVision TM800 (W560L) is a tablet that wins on price alone. Other than that it has a 8-inch IPS screen with 1920 x 1080 resolution, the much used quad-core Intel Atom Z3735F processor, 2GB DDR3 RAM, and 32GB of storage with microSD card support.
It has a micro-USB 2.0 port and a micro-HDMI port, a 3.5 mm audio jack, a 2MP front camera, and a 5MP rear camera.
Internet comes via 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0, while this tablet has a 6 hour battery life.
The dimensions are 10.16 mm in thickness, while the weight is 308 grams.
8-inch Windows 10 tablets with Full HD displays are rare, but two alternatives are either the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 8 Windows where you can use anything from carrots to screwdrivers for stylus, or there’s the “Mini Surface” HP Envy 8 Note which comes with digitizer included.
For those who don’t feel like they need digitizer support on their 8-inch Windows tablet, the 1920 x 1200 resolution Chuwi Hi8 Pro at $89 may prove an even better choice than the NuVision TM800 tablet, since it has a newer Intel Atom x5-Z8300 processor, and even a USB Type-C port.
