Compared to other rivals that are, or will come to market soon, this one has a 7-inch display rather than an 8-inch one, but it sports the same 1,280 x 800 pixel resolution.
Other features that have emerged include the ubiquitous Intel Atom Z3735, a quad-core BayTrail model clocked at 1.33GHz turboboosted to 1.86GHz.
Another interesting and unique feature among cheaper tablets is 3G connectivity, which opens the tantalising prospect of a Windows (not Windows Phone) device making calls.
As for the Haier Windows tablet, the Stream 7 is a mere 8.5mm thick and comes with two cameras. It’s a shame that it’ll only come with 1GB of RAM and 16GB onboard storage, though a 2GB/32GB version is likely to become available.
Expect the new device to be shown at IFA 2014, which has just kicked off, and go on sale later this year. The rumoured suggested retail price is €179 (about £150, $240, AU$260).
