Smartphones may have dominated the MWC 2015 in Barcelona, but there were still some new tablets being released. Haier, a Chinese brand well known for their major appliances, also released 3 new Intel powered tablet products.
The HaierPad W800, which features an 8-inch IPS display at the resolution of 1280*800, an Intel Bay-Trail Z3735G quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, dual cameras as well as 4,000mAh Li-Po battery, will be priced at €129 ($140) when it goes on sale (keyboard will be sold separately). Although the Haier brand may be a guarantee for solid build quality, we still won’t advise anybody to buy a Windows tablet with only 1GB RAM, no matter how tempting the price tag may seem.
Another Windows 8 tablet is the HaierPad W203, which sports a larger 10.1-inch screen, and is powered by the Intel Bay-Trail Z3735F quad-core processor along with 2GB RAM. It also has 64GB built-in storage, dual cameras and a Micro SD card slot which supports cards up to 64GB.
Although the HaierPad W203 is only 8.9mm thick, Haire still managed to include a full USB 2.0 port, along with a Mini HDMI port, a Micro USB port on its right side. This slate will be priced at €249 ($270) when it finally goes on sale. The keyboard and stylus will be sold separately.
Besides those two Windows tablets, Haier also released an Android tablet called HaierPad 971, which is also powered by the Intel 3735F processor and 2GB RAM.
The HaierPad 971 features a 9.7-inch IPS display at the resolution of 2048*1536, and 16GB internal storage. It also has a metallic rear side in gold, which gives the tablet a premium feel. The €249 ($270 ) price, however, is considered by many to be a little too aggressive.
