TrekStor is German technology vendor that specializes in mobile devices and accessories. We sought them out during IFA 2014 to see what kind of new devices they were showcasing, and managed to get a hold of their very latest Windows 8.1 tablet, the TrekStor SurfTab Wintron 10.1 tablet. Check out our hands on video below of very attractive, yet affordable €229 Windows 8.1 tablet:
The TrekStor SurTab Winton 10.1 is, as you might have guessed, a 10.1 inch tablet based on the Intel Atom Z3735, a quad-core processor that is based on the Bay Trail architecture with a base clock of 1.33GHz and single core turbo speeds of up to 1.6Ghz. The device includes 2GB of RAM and 32GB of flash storage, although there will be a Pro version with 64GB of storage, 3G modem and a keyboard/case. Price will vary according to configuration of course.
Of course the display is a 10. inch IPS LCD panel that looks good, with decent viewing angles, good brightness levels and color reproduction that actually punches above its weight considering the €229 price point. The front camera is a 2MP while on the back you are getting a 5MP shooter. In terms of connectivity there is WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 with a USB 2.0 port, mini HDMI out and micro SD card slot. The back of the device has a finish that is very reminiscent of the Samsung Galaxy S5 – a slightly rubberized dimple effect that actually looks quite good on a tablet device of this form factor.
Check out the video below where Roland gives you a tour of the TrekStor SurTab Wintron 10.1 in all its glory:
The base configuration of the SurfTab Wintron 10.1 from TrekStor will set you back a very fair €239. However, €319 gets you the 32GB version of the Wintron 10.1 with a 3G modem and the keyboard dock, which also doubles up as a cover – sounds like good value to me. You can also expect prices to be somewhat lower outside of Germany.
