Linx know simplicity is key when manufacturing an affordable tablet. The 820 is an understated slate with a grippy back panel and thick bezels to aid in holding the unit without interfering with the screen.

The colourful 8 inch screen has a decent enough resolution to allow for quick browsing, watching videos, streaming content or getting down to do some work.
The 820 is an entry level tablet, so you won't be running the latest gaming releases in super high definition or doing intensive tasks such as video editing. You'll be wanting a higher grade Windows device with an Intel Core processor for those kind of tasks.
The specification though is robust enough to ensure a seamless experience when browsing, reading and editing documents or streaming online content.
The quad-core Intel® Atom™ processor is rated for 1.44 GHz, with a burst mode of 1.84 GHz when required. This processor is part of the newest x5-Z8350 (Cherry Trail) range for tablets and 2-in-1 devices, so you can be assured of getting some of the best in mobile technology for Windows devices.

Compatible with both the Linx 820 and 1020 tablets, the Display Station (sold separately) allows you to create a simple media hub.
Industry standard wall mounting brackets mean you can attach a TV or HD monitor up to 29" Ultrawide. Then all you need to do is simply drop the tablet into the docking tab on the base of the Display Station.
Anything on screen can be mirrored, making for an easy way to share videos or games. USB Gamepads (wireless via dongle) are supported too so you can jump right into the action.
