Kupa is a company name I’ve heard in the past, related to the Kupa X11 tablet with Windows 7 and Intel Atom. Now they’re ready for a repeat, this time with Windows 8, via the UltraNote model, pictured below. The newcomer is a 10 inch slate with some impressive high end specifications, detailed below.
So, you get a 10.1 inch IPS screen with a Full HD resolution and 10 point multitouch, plus a digitizer with 1024 pressure levels. Inside you find your choice of Ivy Bridge CPU, either Intel Core i3, i5 or i7, plus 4 GB up to 8 GB of RAM and 64 GB or 128 GB of SSD storage. The connectivity is handled by 2 USB 3.0 ports and HDMI, plus WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0/4.0, 4G LTE, RFID and NFC. The 45 Whr battery is replaceable and there’s even a 5 megapixel back camera on this gizmo.
Upfront we’ve got a 2 megapixel shooter and the weight of the Kupa Ultranote is 771 grams. You can also buy an optional keyboard dock with an extra USB port, Ethernet, VGA port and SD card reader, plus an extra battery. There’s another unique aspect about Kupa’s Ultranote: it’s basically a modular slate, that allows you to add side panels for extra connections to a card reader or scanner or other such devices. There’s no price right now, only the video demo below, sadly:
