Toshiba isn’t the only company developing a 7 inch Windows 8.1 tablet with an Intel Bay Trail processor. Emdoor has one in the pipeline as well… and if Emdoor’s not a familiar name, this is the same company that showed off an 8 inch Windows tablet at Computex that could sell for as little as $100
On paper the Emdoor Miso looks a lot like the 8 inch Emdoor EM-i8080. It’s just a tad smaller.
The Emdoor Miso features a 7 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel IPS display, an Intel Z3735G quad-core Bay Trail processor, and up to 6 hours of battery life thanks to an 11.1 Whr battery.
It has just 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, which should help keep the cost low. While Emdoor hasn’t announced a price for the tablet, expect it to sell for significantly less than any Windows tablets released in 2013 or the first half of 2014.
Despire the low price, the tablet does come with a free 1-year subscription to Microsoft Office 365 Personal which means that you can use Word, Excel, PowerPoint and other Office apps for no extra fee… for a year.
Other features include a micro USB port, microSD card slot, and micro HDMI port. The tablet supports WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0, as well as Miracast wireless display, and it has 2MP front and rear cameras. It measures 0.39 inches thick and weighs 14 ounces.
Emdoor plans to begin mass production in August.
