Japanese device maker NEC’s latest Windows tablet features a 10.1 inch, 1920 x 1200 pixel display, an Intel Celeron N4100 Gemini Lake processor, a fingerprint sensor, a pressure-sensitive pen, and support for a detachable keyboard for times when you’d rather have a laptop.

It’s called the NEC VersaPro VU, and while I wouldn’t bet on it being available outside of Japan anytime soon, it’s a good example of a 2-in-1 tablet with one of Intel’s latest low-power Celeron chips.

The tablet features 4GB of RAM, 64GB to 128GB of eMMC storage, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, and optional support for 4G LTE. There’s a 5MP rear camera and a 2MP front-facing camera. And there’s a slot in the tablet where you can store the pen when it’s not in use.

The VersaPro VU also features USB 3.0 Type-A and Tpe-C ports, and there are additional ports in the keyboard dock including HDMI, USB, and Ethernet.

NEC’s newest tablet measures about 0.4 inches thick and weighs about 1.4 pounds. Add the keyboard and you have a laptop-style device that weighs about 2.6 pounds.

  1. Why is it that when someone seems to “get it”, it’s not available in the US or Europe?
    This thing seems to have it all. Decent specs, plenty of connectors. LTE, light weight. We don’t know about the price, that’s the worry.

    1. Right, the one thing missing in a lot of these new Windows tablets is LTE. I mean, I’m not totally hip to what the big deal is to get these modems installed… but if the HP stream can get an LTE modem in for $50 more, I don’t see why it isn’t a just a base model spec. Who doesn’t take a tablet on the road… if they have one.

  2. I have a Pen, I have a Apple, Uhhh, Apple Pen
    Wait, I don’t need to use a dorky stylus with an Apple device

  3. please stop telling us whats available overseas only,,we only care about whats available in the USA..we DONT care !!

    1. FWIW this is almost certainly a white-labeling of the Lenovo Tablet 10, which will likely be available in the USA also. It’s a business-oriented product, though, with more limited presence in retail channels…
