The Trimeo 7″ Windows tablet is a very budget friendly full Windows 8 PC.
Windows runs surprisingly well, especially the touch screen portion. You can access the desktop view, but this isn’t really well optimised for this size screen so it can be a bit tricky to use, do-able, but fiddly.
The Trimeo tablet has a chunky feel to it and a fairly large bezel around the 7″ screen. However, it’s light enough to easily hold it in one hand while prodding and swiping the screen with the other.
Trimeo have equipped the tablet with an Intel Baytrail quad core processor, 1GB DDR3 RAM and 16GB memory which can be expanded via memory card.
If you already have a Windows 8 laptop or PC with a Microsoft account then this tablet can download your preferences during the setup, for example you’ll see in the video the Trimeo tablet has automatically installed a customer wallpaper that happens to be installed on a laptop running the same account.
The Trimeo Windows tablet has two cameras, a 0.3MP front facing camera and a 2MP rear camera. Despite it’s low megapixel count the rear camera quality is actually fairly decent, better than expected, and while it’s not going to replace a good camera phone or dedicated camera it’ll do for the odd snap or video.
You can see in the review video that the Trimeo screen is fairly reflective and can be tricky to see in direct sunlight, even at maximum brightness.
Generally everything flows very nicely, there is the occasional lag when rotating the screen between portrait and landscape.
The Trimeo tablet is ideal for general day to day use, web surfing, checking emails etc. The design is chunky and it’s not the most powerful tablet you can get, but any shortcomings can easily be overlooked when you consider the wallet friendly price of around £50 at the time of review.
