We're already seeing more tablets at Mobile World Congress 2015 than we did at CES 2015 and you can thank Haier for at least three of them. The HaierPad trifecta deliver a trendy skinny aesthetic at a low price in select European markets.
Running Windows 8.1, the HaierPad W800 is an 8-inch tablet that's almost as modest as its €129 price tag. It features an 8-inch IPS HD screen, Intel quad-core processor, and a micro-HDMI port -- still a rare sight these days, despite each new HaierPad packing one. The W800 also comes pre-loaded with a free year of Microsoft Office 365 and, for a small bump in price to €149, an optional cover and keyboard is available.
Then there's the W203, another Windows 8 slate, but this 10-inch model ships with a cover, keyboard, and stylus for €249. The aluminum wrapped tablet houses a quad-core Intel Z3735F CPU, Intel Gen 7 GPU, and 2GB of RAM. It also has a full-size USB 2.0 port, in addition to a microSD card slot that's expandable up to 64GB.
Lastly, there's HaierPad 971, a slim and trim tablet worthy of a spot on the top thinnest and lightest tablets list. The 9.7-inch Android is 7.6mm thin and boasts a 2,048x1,536-pixel resolution screen, 1.8GHz quad-core CPU, 16GB of internal storage, and 2GB of RAM. It too has a micro-HDMI port as well as a microSD card slot, but it's only expandable up to 32GB. It's expected to be available in Europe in April 2015 with a retail price of 249 euros.
The HaierPad W800 is now available in stores and the W203 is expected to drop in April. Currently the tablets are only available in European markets, but check back for updates if that changes. Keep up with the rest of the latest and greatest gadgets from Mobile World Congress 2015 here.
