SNS Network, the company behind Malaysia’s first tablet brand, has a budget-friendly tablet, priced at only RM899.

“The lack of affordable Windows 10 based tablets in the entry level segment in Malaysia led to the creation of the JOI 11 tablet,” says SNS Network managing director Ko Yun Hung.

Its key selling point is the 2-in-1 form factor that allows it to be used either as a tablet or laptop, by attaching a keyboard to it.

The 10.8in tablet is targeted at students or those who are looking for a second device. 

The stylus support, on the other hand means that users can purchase the optional Active Pen for sketching and note taking purposes

Despite its affordable price tag, the JOI 11 is also one of the few tablets that can run on two operating systems. 

It can run on either Windows 10 or Android 5.1 Lollipop.

The tablet is powered by a quad core Intel Atom X5-X8350 processor, features 4GB RAM, a relatively large 8,400mAh battery which could last up to six or eight hours on a single charge.

It comes with 32GB of storage space. Those who prefer more can easily expand it up to 128GB, with a microSD card.

Additional accessories, namely the Active Pen, is priced at RM99, while the metal keyboard and leather keyboard are priced at RM249 and RM199 respectively. 

Those who are interested can now pre-order the tablet at the company’s Gloo retail stores at major Aeon and Aeon Big malls.

Alternatively, the online pre-orders can be done at Gloo’s official website or Gloo Store on online marketplace 11st.

The first 100 customers who pre-order it will receive a Kingston 32GB microSD card for free.

Also launched at the event are two Avengers branded laptops namely the AVR10T and AVR116T by Hong Kong-based E-Huge Technology Ltd, priced at RM1,249 and RM1,449 respectively.

The AVR10T features a 10.1in HD (1,280 x 800 pixels) display, 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage (expandable up to 64GB with microSD).

The AVR116T comes with a 11.6in HD (1,366 x 768 pixels) display, 4GB RAM and 32GB internal storage (expandable up to 64GB with microSD).

The laptops are decorated with limited edition vinyl stickers and themes from the Marvel superhero franchise.Both come preloaded with Windows 10 Home.
