A few years back the notebooks were sought after by many consumers as they replaced the dependence on PC. Now, though notebooks have transitioned a lot and have evolved as ultrabooks, netbooks and more, the trend of tablets is spreading widely.
Earlier, the tablets were meant only to a particular segment of consumers who were willing to shed a lot of money on purchasing devices, but now, the evolution of budget tablets has changed that concept completely.

With the launch of quad core tablets in the Indian market, it is now easy to do homework at your comfort, play games, and take advantage of 3G connectivity anytime. Few advantages of the quad core tablet include much faster browsing, multiple tabs processing and more. Of course, multitasking will be smoother and more responsive and issues like stuttering, freezing, shutting down will no more happen.
Above all, intensive apps, gaming, video chatting, photo sharing and other types of everyday activities will use less power and generate better performance.
Recently, the Indian market witnessed the launch of Nexus 7, the first quad core Android Jelly Bean tablet after a long time at Rs 15,999. After the launch of Nexus 7 in the international terrain, a lot of tech vendors started coming up with similar offerings. But, when it comes to the 7 inch market segment, it is quote hard to find out a quad core tablet.
On Friday, an India based vendor - Wickedleak resolved this issue by launching Wammy Desire Tab 2 at Rs 9,999. The tablet is a quad core device with Android 4.0 ICS/Android 4.2 Jelly Bean (Beta) out of the box. It is available for pre-order on the company website and will start shipping from the next week.

The final version of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean for the Wickedleak tablet will be released in June 2013.
