Lava IvoryS Tablet: Competition
The 7-inch tablet market has become more saturated; the price competition in this segment is intense. With such a saturated tablet market, it's unclear exactly where the IvoryS tablet stands. If you're looking for a feature rich tablet, this probably isn't the only option with 3G voice-calling feature.Asus recently launched the Fonepad 7 Dual SIM tablet ( Voice Calling) at a price point of Rs. 12, 999. It comes with a 7-inch 720p HD display and runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. The quad-core tablet is expected to get Android 4.4 Kitkat update in June of this year
