Microsoft India, in partnership with iBall, today announced the launch of iBall Splendo, the first compact and affordable PC-on-a-stick device that can convert a TV into a fully functional PC and a Smart TV. Priced at INR 8,999 only which includes a wireless deskset (mouse and keyboard), all the user has to do is plug the device into the HDMI input on the TV for a complete Windows PC experience.
Speaking on the occasion, Vineet Durani – Director, Windows Business Group, Microsoft India said:
“PC penetration is extremely low in the country with just 10% of households having access to computers. On the other hand, the country has seen a tremendous increase in Internet penetration. Increasingly consumers are looking for affordable devices which can offer a complete computing experience. The iBall Splendo offers users the complete PC experience – they can browse the Internet, stay connected on social media, watch videos and Skype, play games and use Microsoft Office Online.”

A true convergence of technology for every age group and for every need!”
