Many agree, and we too don't doubt the fact (at least for now) that sub-15K tablets seem to attract Indian audiences. Yes, it’s the price factor that is making the difference. Zync just launched the first ICS tablet in India priced around Rs.9,000, and now Intex has launched the i-Tab Android tablet. With a price tag that reads Rs.11,900, Intex also adds in the company’s 3G data card, LAN adaptor, leather cover and a pair of Reebok sunglasses, which come bundled along with the 8-inch tablet.
Yet another affordable Android tablet
This new tablet will further strengthen the affordable Android tablet market, only if it manages to deliver efficient performance. This way it would be able to make a mark in the market. Fuelled by 1 GHz cortex A8 core processor with 512 MB DDR3 RAM, it runs on the Android Gingerbread 2.3 version. Designed for young urban professionals on the move, it is a tad heavy at 475 grams. Intex is also planning to further expand its new tablet range with new 7-inch and 10-inch models. It is equipped with an 8-inch capacitive two point touchscreen, and packs in several applications. The 360 degree G-Sensor feature, memory capacity of 8GB, expandable up to 32GB and a 5000mAh battery giving offering back up of 5-6 hours make up the spec sheet of the device.
On the occasion of Intex’s foray into tablets Sanjay Kumar, GM, Mobile Business, Intex Technologies (India) Ltd., said, “Intex has been offering affordable user-friendly products across various categories for over 16 years now and our loyal customer base is a living testimonial to our claim.
