Pune-based Sakri, with its WinTab slates is the latest addition to the list of local manufacturers that are pledging allegiance to the Windows platform ever since Microsoft dropped the licensing fees for its operating system by 70 percent. Two new tablets have been launched by the company, with their price points set at Rs 13999 and Rs 20999.
These apply to the 8-inch and 10.1-inch models, respectively. The products have been blessed with IPS panels and both bear a resolution of 1200 x 800 pixels. The Sakri WinTab tablets ship with Intel Atom Z3735D processors onboard, which have their clock speeds set at 1.83GHz.
