NEW DELHI: Betting big on growing popularity of 2-in-1s, devices maker Notion Ink is making a comeback in the Indian market with 'Cain', developed in partnership with Intel, priced at Rs 19,990.
The Windows-based 2-in-1, which works both as a PC and a tablet, will be available exclusively on eCommerce website Snapdeal.
"With prices falling, we expect more people to opt for 2-in-1s and we are seeing a trend in that direction. 2-in-1s provides the functionality of a PC and mobility like that of a smartphone. With the price point becoming mainstream, there will be more takers," Intel South Asia Director (Marketing and Market Development) Sandeep Aurora told PTI.
The device features Intel Atom processor, 10.1-inch display, 2GB RAM, 32 GB internal memory (expandable up to 32 GB), 2 MP rear and 2MP front camera and 7900 mAh battery.
Notion Ink had unveiled its Adam tablet in 2010, which was touted as a contender to Apple's iPad.
"Notion Ink Design Labs believes in thoroughly studying and understanding user experience and developing a solution for it. Cain is a result of the same philosophy and delivers a unique value proposition of rolling two devices into one sleek form factor without compromising user experience," Notion Ink CEO Rohan Shravan said.
Cain will be available with preloaded business apps like Office, with free one-year subscription, and Outlook along with free data of 500 MB per month for six months.
"2-in-1s as a category has grown 17-20 per cent month-on- month over the last six months. Its an ideal device for working professionals who are looking for mobility as well as students who want good computing capability along with an entertainment quotient," Snapdeal Senior Vice President (Electronics and Home) Tony Navin said.
