Introducing the Kupa UltraNote Windows 8 tablet
The Kupa UltraNote comes powered by Windows 8 and a Core i7 Ivy Bridge processor along with 4GB of DDR3 RAM and a 64GB SSD
Although MobileCon 2012 like all its previous versions is Enterprise-centric, we can’t deny the fact that it is going introduce some new products and hardware for sure. And true to the point we have come across reports about a new Windows 8 tablet called the Kupa UltraNote.
According to Engadget, the Kupa UltraNote modular tablet features a 10.1-inch 10-point capacitive multi touch IPS display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200p and runs on Windows 8. The tablet comes powered by a Core i7 Intel Ivy Bridge processor along with 4GB of DDR3 RAM and 64GB of SSD. The tablet also features a Wacom-like digitizer pen.
Other features include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, 3G/4G LTE radios, NFC, built-in microphone, speakers and fingerprint reader. The tablet also features a SIM slot, 3.5mm audio jack, mini HDMI out and 2 USB 3.0 ports on the right, and a proprietary power/docking connector on the bottom edge.
The tablet measures 15mm in thickness and weighs around 760g which is pretty light, while there’s a 45Wh slide-out battery on the left.
The Kupa UltraNote also features an ASUS Transfomer-like detachable keyboard dock which comes equipped with an additional battery along with a power jack, SD card slot, Ethernet connector, VGA output and 2 USB 3.0 ports. Also, external accessories such as credit card reader can be attached to the left or right of the tablet via a built-in latch mechanism.
Performance-wise Engadget found the Kupa UltraNote to be pretty decent in terms of speed and responsiveness.
However, there’s no word yet regarding the pricing and availability.
