RedFox Technologies announced over the week-end the availability of its long-overdue tablet PC — the RedFox WizPad. First mentioned back in July, the WizPad is a 10-inch tablet running an Intel Atom CPU and Windows 7.

We got to check out one at an SM Appliance Store yesterday to see it first-hand and to get the suggested retail price.

10″ capacitive display screen @ 1024×600 pixels
Intel Atom N455 1.6GHz
Intel GMA 3150

2 USB 2.0 ports
SD card slot

There’s a G-sensor that allows you to flip the screen 360-degrees and auto-orients the display accordingly, much like the iPad.

Though there is an open slot for a 3G SIM card, it does not have a modem installed. The sales rep says, it’s optional and can be upgraded at point of sale. Claimed battery life is around 6 hours.

RedFox also promises larger capacity models like a 32GB SSD storage and 2GB DDR3 RAM in future releases. RedFox mentioned before that this is gonna be a multi-OS tablet which is technically true considering it’s got the guts of your typical netbook. You can probably easily install Meego or Ubuntu in here via the USB port (or maybe even Android).

I suppose it boils down to what you intend to do with it. Too many products out there try to do a little of everything and end up not being excellent at anything. This is where I think Apple really excels. They define the right elements to focus on to create a great user experience.

From what I’ve seen, this is supposed to be a Tablet PC. So yes, not directly comparable to an iPad if you talk tech wise.

But if you view it from the user side, what exactly is this Red Fox tablet supposed to do? At the end of the day, it still is a Tablet, and in a way that sorts of determines how you can use it.

I personally think Tablets are more for consumption, rather than production. Primarily to surf, read, view photos, videos etc. Tablets are not even really for portability I think. It’s more of something you use around the house while you’re lying on your couch, in bed, etc in a way the same way that you would usually read a book/newspaper, etc.

A PC is more for work, for actually producing something. Net, something a bit more powerful, more stable, more storage etc. It’s not so fun and easy really to type a long document in a tablet, or do big spreadsheets, etc.

This is why I think the Red Fox WizPad is somehow planned wrong. It tries to be a PC in tablet form in a market that’s benchmarking against the iPad.

Wizpad is not dumb. The third model comes with Genuine Windows 7 HOme Premium. Plus, it has a slot for sim card.It is way…way…better than the Ipad and Samsung Galaxy! Any half-brained human can see that.

Expensive. In dollars @ 43 per dollar this device cost 744 US dollars!!!!!

If this were Microsoft, HP, Dell, Fujitsu, Sony Vaio, maybe the price is justifiable. But Red Fox?

Highway robbery.

Dumb toy like the ipad. Only rich mindless zombies would buy such devices while sitting in Starbucks.

imo average price of atom based n450 netbooks now cost around 13k to 17k

– keyboard
+ touchscreen

doesn’t justify the 32k price xD

better save your money on a different model :)

Hi Yuga,

Can you suggest which stores can I buy this slate?

Perhaps the mall’s mark up is really high. Maybe it really cost around 23K if not in a mall. Baka mura yan sa Gilmore (kung availbale na).

announcement just got out, asus will be releasing 7, 9, 10, 12 inch tablets. This is going to be fun and exciting, especially that asus was a game changer when they released the netbook.

@Abe Olandres – I guess there’s not many choices as to getting a tablet that runs Windows OS. A Php29k Windows tablet with a netbook’s specs is still highly priced for me… Will have to wait till next year. Maybe prices will start to go down by that time…

This is very disappointing. The price is as similar to an iPad. I was hoping it would be cheaper at around Php20,000. I was wrong. Man. It was truly heartbreaking especially that an iPed costs only Php4,000.

This is an epic fail in the part of Redfox. How in the world can they compete with the iPad if they have the same pricing? If I’m shelling out P31k, I’m going for the iPad.

I just hope that they reconsider the pricing because it is not competitive with the iPad. Or better yet, buy a netbook. You’ll get better specs for less the price.
