When tablets started appearing at low prices and attractive specifications, they instantly made it to the hearts of gadget lovers as well. But even with reasonable price tags, the tablets might lack some good feature. For instance, they might lack battery efficiency, good user interface, a strong and durable build etc. But it apparently is not pretty much considered to be a problem as such tablets still get sold out quite soon.
Consider the Aakash tablets of India for instance. Aakash tablet’s commercial version named as Ubislate 7 tablet got sold out as soon as they appeared in the market. This is because Ubislate 7 is the World’s most affordable tablet, which runs in Google’s Android Operating system. Ubislate users got happy news recently that a new upgraded model of Ubislate 7, christened as Ubislate 7 Plus will be released in the first month of 2012.
As soon as Ubislate 7 plus tablets were released, the units for sale till February got sold out instantly, thereby making the manufacturers add a pre-order option for the new units of Ubislate 7 Plus, in their official website. But the pre-ordered tablets will be delivered only by March.
Ubislate 7 Plus specifications:
- Cortex A8 Processor having 700 MHz processor frequency
- 256 MB RAM
- 2 GB Internal Flash and external storage memory expandable up to 32 GB
- Two v2.0 Standard USB ports
- HD Video co-processor
- 3.5 mm standard audio jack
- 7 inch touchscreen display with 800 x 480 pixels screen resolution
- HD quality video playback support
- Supports all office document formats
- Google’s Gingerbread Operating system
- GPRS Internet connectivity support
- WiFi connectivity support
- 3200 mAh Li battery offering 180 minutes of battery backing
The standard Ubislate 7 equipped a 366 MHz ARM-11 processor. Ubislate 7 had a 2100 mAh battery to power it up and run in Android v2.2 Froyo operating system. Apparently it also didn’t feature a GPRS connectivity support. So Ubislate 7 Plus seems to have an upgraded processor and a powerful new battery also supporting GPRS connectivity. The operating system also had an upgrade with the Froyo updated to v2.3 Gingerbread.
It is obvious that the tablet lacks power. But when there is WiFi support, you don’t actually need it to be powerful, although 700 MHz processor isn’t half bad. It could have sported more RAM memory. The tablet is apt for those in an organization making use of WiFi network. The Ubislate 7 was actually priced around Rs 2,500/- IN iNDIA. The upgraded Ubislate 7 Plus has around Rs 4,000 price tag in India and can be pre-ordered from ubislate.com.
