While perusing the Intel booth at IFA 2104 this week, we came across the very latest tablet offerings from German technology vendor i-Onik, who were showing off a pair of attractive tablets based on the Intel Bay-Trail platform. Nicole Scott gets hands on:
The top tier offering on display at the Intel booth is a 9.7 inch tablet device that has similar resolution and aspect ratio to what we have come to associate with Apple iPads, with a display of 1536 x 2048 pixels. In terms of design the device is housed in an attractive aluminum shell with the IPS LCD screen integrated on top. This 9.7 incher runs Android 4.4 on an Intel Atom Z3745 which is based on their Bay-Trail architecture and has four cores clocked at 1.3GHz, apired with 2GB of RAM. The device has a 5MP rear camera, 2MP front facing camera and supports microSD cards, dual stereo speakers, micro USB port and a stereo headphone jack.
Watch Nicole give you a walk around the 9.7 inch i-Onik tablet love from the show floor of IFA 2014:
As well as the 9.7 incher, i-Onik were also showing a more budget oriented Android 4.4 tablet that also runs on the same Intel Atom Z3745 chip, but using a slightly larger 10.1inch IPS display with a resolution of 1280 x 800. Sporting 1GB of RAM, this baby is geared towards media consumption integrating a pair of solid looking stereo speakers on either side of the display.
We have no details regarding pricing or availability at this stage, but to us both of these attractive devices are evidence of some really decent looking, and innovative Intel-based tablets that German and European consumers will be able to enjoy some time in the near future.
