In the latest effort to compete with the Microsoft Surface Pro 4, a Microsoft OEM, Lava, has introduced its latest imitation, the “Twinpad,” in India. The 2-in-1 Twinpad is powered by Intel Baytrail-T Quad-core processor, with speed up to 1.83 GHz, Intel HD Graphics, 2 GB DDR3 RAM and Windows 10.

The Twinpad also sports a 10.1-inch HD IPS display, 2 MP rear and front cameras, 32GB internal storage, with a microSD card slot (expandable up to 64 GB), and a 7400mAh Lithium-ion polymer battery. The Twinpad has one unique feature separating it from the Surface Pro 4; a SIM port offering 3g connectivity support.

Sharlin Thayil, OEM Group Director of Microsoft India offered some support for the Twinpad (via Gadgets360):

“We are excited to work with Lava to deliver the finest Windows 10 experience, at an affordable price, for our consumers. Product innovations such as Twinpad, on the Windows 10 platform, bring great functionality and unified experiences to life for the always-on-move consumers. At Microsoft, we believe that technology should be out of the way and apps, services and content should move with consumers across devices, seamlessly and easily. With Windows 10 ecosystem we aim to achieve this while at the same enhance productivity. Windows 10 is already running on over 200 million devices worldwide and our partners are continuously working to develop new devices across multiple price points and form factors.”

The Lava Twinpad will be available at retailers throughout India and is priced at Rs 15,999.
