Indian manufacturer iBall have introduced this very low priced ($110) Windows 8.1 tablet (1GB RAM, 16GB flash with SD card expansion slot) and as such is a good buy considering the quad core Atom CPU. iBall's director, Sandeep Parasrampuria, is claiming it the world's cheapest Windows tablet and they seem to have a tied up well with Microsoft and Intel.

9-inch Windows tablets are growing in popularity and this low-cost OEM product under the Odys brand is a good example of how the segment is panning out with high-resolution screens. This model doesn't come with a keyboard dock or case.

The HP Stream 8 is an 8" Windows 8.1 tablet based on the Intel Atom Z3735G Bay Trail platform. The 8" IPS screen has a 1280x800 resolution. One interesting feature (though most likely limited to the United States) is the 200MB of free 4G data that T-Mobile delivery without a signing a contract. The tablet includes Bluetooth 4.0 LE (Low Energy) and WiFi b/g/n. We would have loved to see more budget tablets to include 5GHz WiFi. The proclaimed battery life is 6.5hrs.

We would have liked it to have WiFi 802.11ac to be a little bit more future proof. The proclaimed batterylife on this device is up to 15h which, if true, is very impressive.
|Lenovo Thinkpad 8, 8.3 inch, 430 grams (0.95 lbs)|

The Toshiba Encore is one of the first of the Baytrail-T PCs and one of the first of the 8-inch tablets. It falls under the Microsoft Small Screen program and therefore gets Office Home and Student, full version, included. At 480gm it should offer very consumer/consumption focused usage and the price, starting at 299 Euro, is extremely good.
