SOLT IVW Review
SOLT recently launched a new Windows Tablet, SOLT IVW and is available for Rs. 14,900. This is one of the most affordable Windows tablet presently available in the market with 10.1-inch FHD screen and other high-end specs. SOLT IVW is apparently India’s first 3 in 1 device which can be converted into a desktop, a laptop and it is already a tablet. It can be converted into a desktop with the help of a docking station which is available for Rs.17,490 which includes the tablet and the docking station. This tablet can be bought from either Amazon.in or Snapdeal.com.
SOLT IVW Design:
As far as looks of this tablet are considered, it looks amazing with a charcoal black matte finish on that back and a 10.1-inch FHD screen complementing it on the front. The device being 9.8 mm thick, makes it easier to hold and having a matte back, gives the hold a better grip.
Since SOLT IVW comes along with a cover plus attached keyboard and that we have it with us, we thought of writing about it too. The cover and attached keyboard gives it a great look as well. You can see yourselves in the images below:
SOLT IVW Hardware and Specification:
When it comes to specification, this tablet comes loaded with high-end specs including Intel Atom Z series quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, 10.1-inch FDH Display, 5 MP Primary camera and 2MP secondary camera. It provides a storage space of 64 GB on board which is expandable up to 128GB. A 7900mAh battery is sufficient enough to work on the tablet for about 8-10 hours continuously.
Since this tablet also supports docking feature, which is for the first time introduced along with the tablet, the docking stating boots the calibre of it. Having 500 GB of optional space storage and 4 x USB 3.0 will help you convert this tablet into a complete desktop which is somewhat rare.
Recharging this tablet from 0 to 100 would take longer and is quite exasperating, that is if this tablet gets completely discharged it would at least consume 3 hours to get charged. So, it is recommended that if you have this tablet, please place it for charging when the battery percentage is 12 and above, as it gets charged comparatively quicker than when it is fully discharged.

Display of this device is quite clear and sharp, so you will get a good movie experience. Plus this device comes with 2GB RAM and 1 GB Intel HD Graphic, so most of the games which do not require high specs will run smoothly. Do not expect games like GTA 5 to run as they require a bit better configuration and a lot of space, do not forget this has just 64 GB of storage space available.

SOLT IVW overall is an amazing Windows tablet PC with high-end specification and is appropriately priced.This tablet can be easily used for work, a bit gaming and for entertainment. If you compare the price of this tablet with others in the market having same or nearby specification, you will find that those are at least going to cost you about INR 24-30K where as you get SOLT IVW tablet for under INR 15K. Since users are looking forward to getting their smartphones charged quickly, SOLT also needs to work on the same for making their Tablets charged quicker. We hope SOLT will addresses to this in their next Tablet which they would be launching soon
Considering the design, hardware, performance and price we can say that you should totally go for SOLT IVW if you are considering buying a Windows Tablet.Plus device can be converted to a laptop as well as a desktop which gives it an additional advantage over other Windows Tablets present in the market. We are giving this tablet an overall 4.5-star rating, where 0.5 stars were lost for the charging issue and we hope SOLT addresses this soon. We would suggest the users to put forward their review/ view for this tablet as well.
