Many Kenyans are working on the move increasing the amount of time spent outside the office. As a result, the need for productivity on the go has increased which is why manufacturers have set out to meet the need of the increasingly mobile working population.
In collaboration with Microsoft and Intel, Tecno has officially launched Tecno WinPad 10, a 2-in 1 device that is set to serve the needs of Kenya’s entrepreneurial market that values mobility for increased productivity.
The combined tablet and laptop runs on Windows 8.1 with Bing Operating System (OS). Powered by an Intel® Atom™ quad-core processor, the detachable device comes in a package inclusive of the tablet, keypad and keyboard cover. This device will be upgradable to Windows 10 for free when the software becomes available later this year.
The device, which only weighs 550 grams, is easily portable and much lighter than your normal PC. Users can therefore easily fit into their suitcase or handbag, allowing them to transition from office, to class, type notes in a case of students or prepare a presentation on the go. Users will enjoy one year of Microsoft Office 365, built-in 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 that allows consumers to surf the internet at optimal speeds, anytime, anywhere.
Using the device, users will easily transition smoothly from business to lifestyle increasing their productivity by giving them the power of a laptop and freedom of a tablet. The TecnoWinPad 10 will not only bring functionality and convenience but also support an increasingly mobile business environment.
Speaking during the event, Microsoft Kenya’s country manager Kunle Awosika acknowledged it was an exciting time for the firm and its customers. He added there was a wide variety of amazing Windows 8.1 devices, offering cool designs and all the features customers want in market now that will be great Windows 10 devices when upgraded end of July.
“We are working with partners like Tecno and Intel throughout our expanding ecosystem to offer a great Windows 10 upgrade experience on existing devices and to build a wide range of innovative new devices Like the Winpad 10, across categories and price points, that bring Windows 10 capabilities and experiences to life for customers,” he said.
TecnoWinPad will be available in Safaricom shops countrywide and will retail at Ksh 29,999.
