Gamers are becoming a niche market each time more attractive for manufacturers of tablets. At first, efforts were directed toward groups of users seeking perfect for the work environment, more interactive terminals that were gradually displacing the traditional stands, older and with some portability problems which could be a significant impediment to these audiences. However, over 2016 we have seen a boom of new releases to them that leaves once again showed that the future of the sector through diversification. Players could now be the new focus of attention as we have seen with models such as those presented by Nvidia or Razer.
In the race to get the interest of consumers in the new formats as tablets for gamers, big companies still not are focusing too many efforts, which could be an opportunity for others such as LINX, more unknown, may split with some advantage. Today we show you the bet of the company to conquer the lovers of video games, Vision, a device with British label that uses as one of its collaboration with Microsoft and its logo in the industry of the consoles: XBox.
The most striking of this device is the fact that their side has two vertical grips that various controls are placed as if it were a conventional remote control. The tablet, whose approximate dimensions are 21 × 13 cm on the other hand has a more robust removable housing that is which incorporates the joysticks. Both components are made of an alloy of aluminium and polycarbonate in order to Stylize and lighten, but at the same time, offer more resistance to Vision.
Here we would not find great fanfare since we would be facing a terminal of medium size, 8 inches, accompanied by a basic HD resolution of 1280 × 800 pixels. This could be a drawback for players that are more demanding in regards to sharpness and image quality. In an attempt to reach also other type of public and also, to improve the experience of the game in Streaming titles, has an rear camera and a front that in both cases, reach the 2 Mpx, which can also lead to a setback for those seeking higher qualities in this aspect.
Tablets for players, as well as the focused on professional public, require fast processors so that in this case, they are able to run more elaborate games without major problems. In the case of Vision would be facing a component manufactured by Intel series 5 X, which would reach 1,84 Ghzmaximum, acceptable if we take into account that it is a device of less than 200 euros. In terms of memory, it is equipped with a RAM of 2 GB with a storage capacity of 32, expandable up to 128 by the incorporation of Micro SD card.
At the beginning I had the tablet of LINX, counted with the support of Microsoft. This not only results in controls, identical to the XBox, but also to the incorporation of 10 Windows that add some voice of Cortanacommands. Through synchronization, you can link the device to a console created by the Redmond account and receive terminal latest news, updates and demos of the latest titles. There is also the option of creating accounts in Stream, optimized for the latest version of the software. In terms of connectivity emphasizes its support for WiFi networks. It has a battery of 6,000 mAh.
Availability and price
This device already has some experience in the market. Presented a little less than a year ago, this tablet went on sale shortly after the bet of Nvidia in the same format. While currently, offer models for players is somewhat reduced, the presence of Vision in the market, in which landed approximately in December 2015, could be one of its major inconveniences since as time passes, the sales channels through which it can purchase are reduced. As I mentioned at the beginning, it has been manufactured by a British company so its cost, about 150 pounds , could suffer variations currency exchange, by both the usual differences between different Internet portals.
While they come from companies that, at least in our country, are still not too known, little by little we found an increase in the number of tablets for players who nonetheless is still low when compared with the existing ones in the traditional format or professional groups. Do you think that Vision can still be an alternative interesting for gamers to already take a time to sell? Do you think that this same “longevity” can be a drawback that place it at a disadvantage against the benchmarks of the industry? You have available more information about other similar models, so you can get to know other options at your fingertips.
