There is a company called Window and the reason why its in news is that they have added one more tablet device – the Window N6 to the steady stream of tablets that are being produced around the world. But then that’s half the truth for the tablet is among the very few that is built around the uprated 1GHz dual-core RK2818 Rockchip processor. In fact, with the N6, Window has joined an exclusive club of just two other tablets – the ezGear Surfboard 700 and the RAmos W9 which have the new more powerful 1GHz RK2818 chipset at its core.
It is the Rockchip’s 600MHz RK2808 processor that can be found in the majority of the built to a price tablet and is held as a processor with the right mix of price and acceptable performance. However, with the consumers craving for more of almost everything like performance, features, and support, it was only a matter of time for Rockchip to make available the new processor.
So does the new dual-core processor ensure the N6 is one powerful little tablet. Unfortunately there is no way that can be answered with a simple Yes or a No for the simple reason of there being an acute shortage of credible information. There is even serious doubt as to what the screen actually measures though some sources claimed its in the 7 inch category though there’s another camp that believes its 6 inches, the reasoning for which is this – if the N5, Windows previous tablet offering has a 5 inch screen, the N6 should logically have a 6 inch screen and so on.
This apart, the other things known about the tablet is that it will ship with the Android 2.1 with an option to upgrade to the more advanced 2.2 Froyo later on. For its features, the tablet will have an integrated accelerometer along with 3G and WiFi for connecting to the internet. The tablet’s design also includes a trackball. And while still on the design, the N6 impresses with its sleek white build which is a welcomes break from the usual black front with silver edged tablets that are available a dime a dozen.
And the good thing is, the N6 is likely to be launched next month itself, which means we won’t have to wait for long for the detailed specs or for its performance characteristics.
