RCA Cambio W101V2 is a detachable tablet where the users can just attach or detach its screen from its keyboard. This kind of device is not something new and very common nowadays thanks to the popularity that ASUS and Lenovo bring to the wide consumers. What makes this system is special is located in its price range. It costs you not more than 130 dollars and in return you will get of a fully fledge Windows 10 laptop. Yeah, the hardware specification is not special, but the price is so special here. If it has 200 or 300 dollars price I am not going to recommend you as it features only 2GB RAM and Intel Atom processor. But, considering the price, I think it’s worth to take look here.
As the companion for its 10.1 inch screen, there is a detachable keyboard that connected through its magnetic slot. Just put your screen near of the magnetic slot and it’s automatically connected. I have decided to make a review about it because there is a huge chance that many people looking for a decent and cheap system for their kids or used as their secondary system. That is what we are going to take look here. Let’s make our way to the inside and see how it works on us.
Design and Build
There is nothing special from its design. Both of keyboard and tablet are created from plastic than later finished in smooth finishing. The product itself is available in few different color choices included of the pink, blue, and black one. Its light color choices here are great here because it could be a selling point for users to take it. One thing that I love from this small device is its dimension and weight. The tablet is just weight for 1.65 pounds and connecting it to the keyboard will only add another 1.06 of pounds. It means the weight is not heavier than 3 pounds for this case.
As for the port connectivity, everything is depending on the tablet itself because the keyboard dock is just only a plastic shell for the keyboard and nothing more. On the left side, you will find of combinations between USB 2.0 port, micro USB port, HDMI, and charger ports. The right side is completely empty and there is nothing more to find here. The battery could be charger by either of through its default connecting slot or we could charge it anywhere through its micro USB slot. I prefer to charge it through the micro slot because I just need to bring single USB cable here. The cable is not included, but any similar cable from smartphone should work well here.back to menu ↑
Out of the box, you will receive of a 10.1 inch tablet with 1366 X 768 resolution similar to Lenovo Miix 320. The TN panel is used here, so the viewing angle is limited here. The color accuracy is pretty average, but luckily the brightness is not that dim and at least pretty useful for indoor usage. For the outdoor usage, activate the auto brightness or setting the brightness into the maximum is recommended because I can barely see anything at the minimum brightness. The display itself is supported with touchscreen and navigating through the system feels smooth here. With the price, I could not make any complaint here.
Move into the inside, there are some hardware components that should accompany you for a while. For the processor, they put of Intel Atom Z3735F with 1.3 GHz clock rate. This is a very standard processor and should run 5 to 10 tabs at the same time on Chrome with 2GB of RAM. As for the storage, we only receive of 32GB storage here, so putting of micro SD slot for installing apps and saving stuff is a must to do on your list now. Adding another 32GB SD is a not tough job because most people should have of free SD card from their smartphone.

Worth Mentioning Features
The first worth mentioning thing here is the keyboard. The thing is useless without a keyboard. The small detachable keyboard is included on the package here. The keyboard is connected through the magnetic slot and feels tough as soon as it’s connected. Even moving it around will never make it detachable pretty easily. The magnet holds the screen so well. For the typing experience, I think the result is good here at least for people who get used with short travel keys. The keys spaced are short and sometimes it often gets you press the wrong button accidentally. All of keys appeared in normal size with few exceptions on navigation a few keys that look quite small.
The last thing that I have to talk about here is battery life. The battery is so solid with 8 or 9 hours of usage. Using it for browsing to the internet and typing document will make it last a day with light usage here. The keyboard takes huge amount of battery here, so it’s better to detach when you do not need it. We can always charge the battery through the USB slot with battery pack when you need for more battery. Carrying a 10000 mAh battery pack is more than enough for charging it twice.back to menu ↑
The RCA Cambio is a perfect introduction system for your kids or usable as a secondary device. The specification is low here, but keep in mind finding similar thing on 100 hundred dollars is impossible. Spending that amount of money is not that hard especially considering with so much productivity and usability it offers to the users. Using it as media entertainment or supporting your productivity, everything is yours. Feel free check our other articles here.
