PiPO is a Chinese manufacturer specialized in low-cost Android tablets mostly based on Rockchip System–on–Chip. With the PiPO W1, they are just releasing their first Windows 8.1 based 10.1" tablet running on an Intel Atom Z3740D (Bay Trail-T) quad-core processor. This model has similar specifications to the Dell Venue 8 pro where PiPO has added in the W1 a large 64 GB flash memory storage space and a detachable keyboard.

Folding keyboard

The PiPO W1 is equipped with a detachable keyboard that looks quite similar to the Microsoft Surface tablets. There are likely some magnets on the metal connectors to make it easy attaching the keyboard.

PiPO W1 system and software offer

Like other Bay Trail-T based tablets, the PiPO W1 runs on Windows 8.1 (32-bit). According to PiPO the tablet ships with Office Home and Student 2013: Word 2013, Excel 2013, PowerPoint 2013 and OneNote 2013.

Currently no Bay Trail based devices are available on Android, but these processors may allow to run the Google O/S and it seems Intel has such plans for Q2 2014. Still, it is unknown at the moment if the W1 will eventually offer native Android support together with a Win 8.1 / Android dual boot.

Expected PiPO W1 performance

The Intel Atom Z3740D part of the Bay Trail-T platform is running at 1.33 GHz up to 1.86 GHz in burst mode, the GPU part of the processor called "Intel HD Graphics" is based on the Intel Gen7 architecture offering only 4 Execution Units (EU) running at a maximum speed of 688 MHz. With a processor manufactured using 22nm process technology, the W1 is expected to offer a decent battery life from 8 to 12 hours.

Looking at the GPU performance on other Intel Atom Z3700 Bay Trail tablets powered by similar processors, it seems the graphic performance is about fine, but still quite far from Android high end processors (Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 / Tegra 4)

Final words, pricing and availability

It is interesting to see Chinese manufacturers such as PiPO investing the Windows based tablets. PiPO W1 with its folding keyboard is definitely oriented for work related activity. The W1 performance looks acceptable for an entry level Windows 8.1 tablet, even if it does not offer a particularly high definition display and lacks GPS support, it still looks to offer an a fully complete model for those willing to switch from Android to a Windows 8.1 tablet.

There is no exact word on the PiPO W1 availability and price from the manufacturer, it will hopefully be priced to compete with similar devices such as the Dell Venue 8 pro that sells at $319 in 64 Gb storage configuration. We can expect to see the PiPO W1 tablet in the $300-$400 range hopefully to hit the market in the next two months.

I have just bought one of these and its a brilliant piece of kit, I'd rocommend it. If anyone in the UK is interested in one of these I'd highly recommend Digital Playworld, they are the official Pipo seller in the UK

Hey guys!

I have a unit of this one here and it has a bricked UEFI. I would need someone to create a backup of his for me so I can restore it. Use this tool:

It is the Flash Tool for American Megatrends BIOS chips. Just open it, then click the save button, name the file AMIBOOT and wait for it to finish dumping the BIOS. Then send the image file to me. This would save the life of one of these sweet tabs. :)

Thanks in advance!

Did you ever get your Win 10 issues worked out? Sorry I cannot help, but wanted to join because I just got a W1S with Win 10 and Android 5.1. My son uses it more, since I got the Cube version with similar specs, the iWork10 with keyboard. It will be interesting to compare them. My son complains about the touchpad either being laggy or too sensitive.  No touchscreen or Win 10 problems but as you say, it is all in Chinese; it does seem that the Windows on the Pipo seems more tablet-like; I think it wants to run MS 365 instead of full MS Office.  The version on my Cube seems to offer desktop interface without prodding. You might check with, who says they put the firmware into Engish on the tablets they sell. Good luck.
