“The iBall Splendo is for people who love devices and want to be connected all the time using multiple form factors.

“iBall Splendo PC-On-Stick is one such device which will be useful for every home and office conference room providing different dimensions to use the PC as well as get great multimedia and internet experience by attaching it to the TV,” Sandeep Parasrampuria, Director of iBall, said.

The iBall Splendo is powered by an Intel Atom Quad-core processor that runs Windows 8.1 and has a 2 GB RAM, alongside 32GB in-built memory.

When connected to a TV, through its HDMI male plug, the device can turn the TV into a PC – complete with features including HD graphics, multi-channel digital audio, a micro SDXC slot, Normal USB port, Micro USB port, Wi-Fi and in-built Bluetooth 4.0. The device has a fanless design and comes with a one-year warranty.

The fully functional PC set-up can be used for work, such as checking emails and document editing. Because of its small size, it is portable and can be carried along while travelling on work as a replacement for the laptop. It can also be used for entertainment purposes, surfing through YouTube/videos, browsing photos and play games on TV.

iBall Splendo will be available for sale beginning of July across the country. It will also be broadly available on IT and TV retail channels.
