RCA Cambio W101SA23T1S 10.1″ 2-in-1 Tablet (Win 10, Intel Atom Z8350, 2GB / 32GB, with Keyboard) – Walmart Black Friday $89
The RCA Cambio W101SA23T1S is an extremely cheap 10.1″ Windows 10-based 2-in-1 tablet with a detachable keyboard. It’s priced at only $109. During the 2018 Black Friday sales on Walmart, it will cost only $89 and will surely be one of the best sellers in the electronics department.
The centerpiece of the 2.1-pound RCA Cambio W101SA23T1S is the 10.1″ multi-touch screen with ordinary budget-class 1,280 x 800-pixel resolution. We applaud RCA for putting this IPS wide viewing angle panel in such a cheap tablet / 2-in-1. Thanks to the detachable keyboard cover, which is included in the price, the RCA Cambio W101SA23T1S can also act as a mini 2-in-1 touch-screen laptop. The keyboard is available in four different colors: silver, blue, pink, and purple. The tablet sports a Microsoft Surface-style kickstand on the back, which allows an angled screen position.
True, Cambio’s internal components aren’t as capable as those in full-blown notebooks. The included Intel Atom Z8350 (actually x5-Z8350) processor is a very basic personal computer-use chip. It is capable of completing the basic home and office tasks, but nothing more than that. Combined with a small system memory size of 2GB, the Atom Z3850 will enable you to run web browsers, Microsoft Office apps, and media players. But, without running many of them simultaneously. Yes, 32GB of internal eMMC-based data storage memory is very small. But, RCA at least provided support for external memory cards with capacities of up to 128GB via a built-in microSD card slot.
Speaking of MS Office, it’s worth noting that the 2-in-1 comes with free touch-friendly mobile versions of select Office apps – Word Mobile, PowerPoint Mobile, Excel Mobile and OneNote.
Not all details about the RCA Cambio W101SA23T1S are known at the time of this writing. For sure, it features two 2-megapixel cameras – one on the front and one on the back of the tablet, and Bluetooth support. The 2-in-1 tablet has a battery life of up to 6 hours, according to the RCA. It certainly has some kind of Wi-Fi connectivity (most likely 802.11AC Wi-Fi) and at least one USB port, but we’ll know that for sure when we receive a full specs sheet. UPDATE: In a review of the tablet (in the Review section of this page), our reader Louie said the Cambio has one full-size USB 3.0 port, one micro USB port, an mini HDMI video out.
Nevertheless, for a price of only $99 or $109, the RCA Cambio W101SA23T1S is definitely one of the best Black Friday deals in the computer and electronics categories.
