It's raining Windows tablets across the world, and it's quite a downpour in India as well! A Pune, India-based IT distribution company, Sakri IT Solutions, launched Windows 8.1-based tablets in partnership with Intel and Microsoft for India, Malaysia, and Bangladesh.

The WinTab devices run Windows 8.1 with Bing and are powered by the Intel Atom Z3735D processor. The maiden devices are available in two form factors – 8-inch and 10.1-inch – but Ravi Lakshmann, CEO of Sakri announced that the company will soon introduce WinTab tablets in diverse sizes to address different industry verticals.

While the two tablets are identical in most specifications, including display resolution, the only points where they differ are the battery size and that the 10.1-inch has double the RAM as well as internal storage than its smaller sibling. Also, while the 8-inch one includes a SIM slot for 3G connectivity, it is missing on the larger variant.

Sakri plans to augment its strengths in the retail, e-commerce and SME segment by working with various ISVs to enhance their capabilities to cater retail, BFSI, and education sector. In partnership with Flipick, the company will provide adaptive learning online courses for higher education and competitive exams powered by Pearson Education.
