Nintendo has seen widespread success this year with the Nintendo Switch – its latest gaming device that blurs the lines between a traditional home console and handheld system. Featuring a tablet form factor and detachable "Joy-Con" controllers, the device has garnered a fair amount of traction and PC manufacturers have clearly taken note.
As reported by Notebook Italia, Chinese manufacturer Vastking has debuted the G800 – a portable gaming tablet clearly drawing heavy inspiration from Nintendo's handheld. Featuring full HD display, detachable wireless controllers and kick-out stand the device is shaping up to be an enticing gaming machine, however, has a Windows 10 twist.
The Vastking G800 comes with an 8-inch IPS display at 1920 x 1200 resolution, a 1.1GHz Intel Pentium N4200 processor and RAM configurations of 2GB, 3GB, 4GB or 6GB. The device also offers 32GB of embedded storage as standard, expandable via an SD card. The device also offers WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity and 3,400 mAH battery. Other features of the tablet include a gyroscope and 2-megapixel front-facing camera. Across the top of the device, USB-C, USB-A, micro HDMI and 3.5mm audio can all be found, alongside a dedicated volume rocker.
The external wireless controllers are what makes this tablet truly unique, both usable when detached and connected to the side of the tablet. Utilizing WiFi connectivity, these controllers offer a traditional controller layout, with triggers, buttons and two thumbsticks. Although this tablet replicates the concept of the Joy-Cons, no form of simple docking to external monitors has been showcased.
As of right now, Vastking is currently looking to license this design to other organizations, ahead of a formal release. No release window or pricing has been announced at this point in time. What do you think of the device so far? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
