The Onda oBook 10 Ultrabook is a variant of the earlier released oBook 11 Ultrabook, comes with detachable Keyboard with Multirotational Shaft. The tablet is also a bit cheaper, however, the price doesn’t include the keyboard on it. Interestingly, the oBook 10 Ultra thin design resemble the likeness of Macbook Air.
Difference between the oBook 11
There is a close resemblance between the two devices, however, in terms of design the oBook 11 is catered to the foldable type (Lenovo YoGa inspired), meanwhile the oBook 10 is a transformer tablet with a detachable keyboard (magnetic dock). The oBook 10 is only limited to 720p HD and a single front facing camera.
Furthermore, features like USB 3.0 and 4K video output via HDMI are also available on the tablet. The Rotational Shaft allows you to use 3 modes on the device: namely Tablet Mode, PC mode or Stand Mode, basically a hybrid 2 in one tablet.
More hybrid tablets now showing
It seems the trend today are on Hybrid tablets, very versatile machines that’s catered to a wide audience. Not just for multimedia but also light workstations. The Intel Cherry Trail chipset is still good enough light workload and gaming, it’s also a more efficient with less heat compared to the earlier released X5-8500 Cherry. Going back to the oBook 10, the 720p HD display i think is not a disadvantage, it doesn’t stress the CPU and thus will give more performance benefit compared to Retina and Full HD. Still, more is to be known once the tablet is available.
