Wishtel partners with Intel to bring affordable tablets to Indian businesses

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.

  • It's good to see Intel working with India brands to make affordable devices. Btw I never heard about this brand Wishtel.
  • Excited to get another OEM. Maybe they'll make phones too eventually!
  • What are the prices in dollars?
  • Approx $116-300
  • Hey Abhishek, I know there are subtle differences between the tablets, in terms of display sizes and battery capacities, but I'm not seeing anything about clock info of the processors. Is it on the article? Otherwise I might know whether my ADHD is acting up. ;)
  • The Z3740D is the same CPU in the venue pro 8. It has a clock speed of 1.33-1.8ghz
  • Nice, usually all those low-cost tablets have the same specs but this one has 3G. Still waiting for a 4G version of the Surface Pro 3. Hope the Surface 3 will include a cellular module.
  • Nice specifications for that price! Wen will we get such phones at that price??? I wonder...sigh..
  • Windows rt or normal or pro?
  • Windows 8.1
  • Intel CPU means Full windows 8.1
  • Can you make phone calls with the 3G version? It seems like there is an earpiece on the top of the tablet for phone calls.
  • Great specs at affordable prices, never heard of the Wishtel but, more the merrier!
  • Ya happy?
  • That's nice and all but..."Wishtel"
    Seriously, worst name ever.
  • 8 inch device makes sense coz the screen resolution would be rather thin on a 10 inch display
  • Nice tablets at this price point, bt where is it available???
    On flipkart as usual?? LOL
  • I would be happy if they have choosen AMD Mullins instead of baytrail.
  • Wp8.1???? that is cooler than I expected.I think the price cut on Os is due to the new reduced license fees by Ms.If this is good then lets c if I will buy this.
  • Windows 8.1 :)
  • The 10" version sounds a lot like Asus transformer t100. The difference being lower price and 3G option.
  • waiting fr it to experience it.....
  • I hope they will release enable text massaging over gsm/3g and call. why windows 8 doesn't offer this kind of features like other competitor did to their tablets?
