NEC has also announced the LaVie S tablet today, a model that’s sold unlocked and with LTE on board. This product runs Android 4.4 KitKat and relies on an Intel Atom Z3745 64 bit processor. They also announced a 2 in 1 ultrabook today.


The CPU is a quad core 1.33 GHz one and on board of the device we find an 8 inch IPS LCD display with LED backlight and 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution. Other specs include a front 1.6 MP camera, an 8 megapixel back shooter and LTE Category 4 connectivity. There’s WiFi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 on the specs list, as well as 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage. The battery is a 4290 mAh unit.

LaVie S comes in pearl white and I see it as a strong rival for the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact tablet, since they have similar formats, but the specs are quite different. NEC’s product is expected to come in late November 2014, probably with a lower price compared to the Xperia we mentioned above.
