Huawei Matebook Now Has an US Launch Date: July 11th; Priced Up From $699
We wrote yesterday that Huawei was planning to bring its Windows 10 hybrid, MateBook to the US and today we learn a bit more info. Turns out that the slate is coming on July 11th to the USA and the convertible will be priced upwards from $699.
It goes up to $1199 for the Core M5 version with 8 GB of RAM and 512 of storage, while the basic unit offers 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. Of course, there are also accessories in the mix, that aren’t bundled, but rather bought separately. They’re the keyboard, priced at $129, the stylus, at $59 and the dock at $89 a pop.
This is no regular tablet or convertible, as it’s the winner of 5 awards at MWC 2016. Those were media awards, like Best 2 in 1 product form Alphr.com, best hybrid, best in show, best tablet from Computer Bild and best of MWC from Know your Mobile. The Mate Pen was particularly praised.
