Meet Wind Tech Co. LTD, which has become the first company to offer a tablet without an operating system pre-installed. We have seen laptop vendors doing this from a decade to reduce the retail price, but this is the first time a tablet is being offered without one. Fortunately, since it is an x86 machine, you can easily install Windows 8.1 on it.
