Lava announces Android 4.2.2-running Etab Xtron+ tablet

Lava has announced a refresh for its Etab Xtron series with the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean-running Xtron+ tablet. This makes it one of the few tablets in the country to run on the latest version of Android.

The Etab Xtron+ is very similar to the other tablets in the series, in the sense that it also has a 7-inch TFT capacitive multi-touch display of unknown resolution. It’s powered by a 1.5GHz Cortex-A9 dual-core processor of unspecified make and the SoC has a quad-core Mali 400 GPU to boost graphics performance. There’s 1GB of DDR3 RAM to add to the processing power. In addition, the battery capacity on the tablet has been increased to 3700 mAH; Lava says this will provide 5 hours of continuous usage time.

The 363 g Xtron+ tablet comes with two cameras, with the front-facing unit being 0.3 megapixel and the rear camera being a 2 megapixel unit. Interestingly, there’s an HDMI 1.4 port so users can view their apps, games and multimedia on their HDTVs. The internal memory of 8GB sounds decent, but there’s a microSD card slot to expand it to 32GB.

Lava has been on a tablet spree lately and had earlier launched two tablets in the Xtron range. The Etab Xtron was announced earlier in February and unlike the Xtron+, it shipped with Android 4.1.1 and didn’t have a rear camera. At the same time, the company had said it would be bringing a revamped version of the tablet, which it has now done.
