Wishtel

Wishtel, a home grown Indian brand, has partnered with Intel to offer affordable and reliable Windows tablets to enterprises. The company has unveiled a new IRA-IW range of Windows tablets in different sizes at an affordable price range of INR 7,000-18,000.

The IRA IW series is powered by Intel Baytrail 3700 Series 1.33GHZ-1.8GHZ processors and Window 8.1 operating system. Pretty much uniform in specifications, the three tablets are available in 7-inch, 8-inch, and 10.1-inch sizes.

Here is Intel's Anand Ramamoorthy, Director of Consumption Sales, on the new tablets:

"There are over 200 million middle-class potential customers in India alone for different screen sizes across different price points. Intel® based tablets provide an ideal balance of performance, battery life and graphics for consumers and we are working with Wishtel this year in delivering an exciting hands-on experience to consumers on our Intel® processor based tablets across multiple screen sizes."

While nicely priced, the tablets don't cut much corners in hardware specifications, although it's left to see how the build quality and user experience is. While primarily positioned as devices for enterprises, the tablets would also be sold to retail customers as well.
