Microsoft releases a $140 PC on a Stick, iBall Splendo

Microsoft’s intent to stimulate the PC market is quite evident. The latest move by Microsoft is to partner with iBall to release a portable PC on a stick for just $140 (9000 INR, 28,000 NGN). And, you will be surprised by the hardware the PC on a Stick carries.

For the uninitiated, the Stick PC, known as iBall Splendo will be powered by Atom Quad Core processor, 2GB of RAM and 32 GB of inbuilt memory.

The PC on a Stick uses the latest Windows platform, the Windows 8.1 and with Windows 10 near the release date, the future version of the stick PC can see a change in the operating system version.

Other key features of the iBall Splendo PC on a Stick are connectivity options such as plugging it into any TV that sports an HDMI male plug. Once connected, it will be able to do an array of functions such as play movies, small games, and others.

Virtually you will be able to transform the stick to a whole PC that will have features such as multi-channel digital audio, normal USB port, micro USB port, Wi-Fi, HD graphics and inbuilt Bluetooth 4.0.

According to the official iBall blog, the team believes in the future that offers portable devices, powerful enough to meet the demands of the user.

The iBall Splendo is targeted at users who do not have a central way of entertaining themselves and like to carry the powerful PC on a Stick with them for instant gratification.

The iBall Splendo will come with a 1-year warranty and is perfect for people who like to travel a lot. For example, they can just carry the device and plug it into the hotel TV for full immersive entertainment.

With technology improving as each day passes, it tough to speculate what we would have in the future.
