The PC-on-a-stick device that can convert a TV into a fully functional PC and a Smart TV
Microsoft India, in partnership with iBall, announced the launch of iBall Splendo, the first compact and affordable PC-on-a-stick device that can convert a TV into a fully functional PC and a Smart TV. Priced at INR 8,999 only which includes a wireless deskset (mouse and keyboard), all the user has to do is plug the device into the HDMI input on the TV for a complete Windows PC experience.
“The iBall Splendo is for people who love devices and want to be connected all the time using multiple form factors,” says Vineet Durani – Director Windows Business Group, Microsoft India.
The iBall Splendo is a compact device that can fit neatly into your pocket. It is powered by the Intel Atom Quad-core processor, runs Windows 8.1 and has a 2 GB RAM with 32GB in-built memory. When connected to a TV, through its HDMI male plug, the device can turn the TV into a PC – complete with features including HD graphics, multi-channel digital audio, a micro SDXC slot, Normal USB port, Micro USB port, Wi-Fi and in-built Bluetooth 4.0. The device has a fanless design and comes with a one-year warranty.
The fully functional PC set-up can be used for work, such as checking emails and document editing. Because of its small size, it is portable and can be carried along while travelling on work as a replacement for the laptop. It can also be used for entertainment purposes, surfing through YouTube/videos, browsing photos and play games on TV.
iBall Splendo will be available for sale beginning of July across the country. It will also be broadly available on IT and TV retail channels.
