SNS Network Sdn Bhd has announced the addition of new devices to its lineup of Joi tablets, with the original Joi 8, an Intel-powered Windows 8.1 tablet released last year, now joined by the Joi 7, Joi 8i with 3G and Joi 10 Flip (pic, above).
“For work or for play, at home or on the go, our tablets are now available in various sizes for everyone,” said SNS Network managing director Ko Yun Hung.
The Joi 7 is a variant of the Joi 8 tablet, featuring a 7in display, an Intel Atom processor, and 16GB of storage, the company said in a statement. It packs most of the same features as its predecessor, but in a smaller and more compact form factor.
The Joi 8i with 3G is an updated version of the original Joi 8, featuring a Micro HDMI port and 3G connectivity for Internet access on the go, SNS Network said.
The Joi 10 Flip is an updated version of the Joi 10 Flip released late last year. It features an updated Intel Atom processor and support for the Joi Docking Station, a charging station which gives the tablet four additional USB ports, a full-sized HDMI port and a LAN (local area network) port.
It also has a Kensington Security Slot if users need to keep the Joi 10 Flip chained to their desk.
“With our Atom processors inside these tablets, users can expect an experience as sleek as the device they hold in their hands,” said Sumner Lemon, country manager, Intel Malaysia and Singapore.
“We look forward to supporting local companies like SNS Network in creating more local tablets with world class experiences in the future,” he added.
