Indian tablet manufacturers list is never ending and every day there is a new tablet launched. One thing we have seen with these manufacturers is that they are worried of the software updates on these tablets; rather they announce the upgraded version of their existing tablet and forgets the older tablet.
But on the other side Aakash has brought the ideology into the people minds that tablets are pretty much cheaper and this is why you see dozens of tablets are available in India. Today it turned out to be Ice X Electronics debuting with the launch of 7 inches Android tablet powered with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS. This tablet will compete with existing tablets like Ultra Tab A100 priced at Rs 6100, Funtab by Go Tech, New Reliance 3G Tab priced at Rs 15,000, Wickedleak Wammy Ethos priced at Rs 8,999, Simmtronics XPad at $ 81 and Intex iBuddy tablet.

Going through the specifications of the Ice Xtreme 7 tablet, it’s with Allwinner A10 SoC chipset and powered with 1 Ghz single core processor. The screen is capacitive with 5 input multi touch support and this tablet is boosted with 1 GB of DDR3 RAM for faster operation.
It’s equipped with 4700 mAh battery and it will be seen with the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system providing the minimalistic design and interface. The tablet will be seen with variety of ports such as dedicated USB port vi which you can add various USB dongles available in the market. The tablet also includes the mini USB port and HDMI port as well. This tablet includes internet access via Wi Fi as well apart from USB dongle support, though USB dongle internet will be pretty slow.

This tablet is priced at Rs 7000 and its provided with a leather cover to go with the tablet. They are planning to launch the wireless charging tablets in the coming days.
To sum up the Xtreme 7 tablet will be spotted with the following specifications –
- Android 4.0 ICS
- Allwinner A10 SoC chipset 1 Ghz CPU frequency
- 1 GB of DDR3 RAM
- 4700 mAh battery
- 2 mega pixel front facing camera
Among the various alternatives available for this tablet are Attitude Daksha, Micromax Funbook, Lacs Tablet, Beetel Magiq 3G Tablet, Mercury mTab, BSNL TPad, Fujezone 3G Tablet, Sruta 7 Tablet, Micromax P300 Tablet, Mercury mtab2 tablet, Zinglife z97t, HCL Me X Tablet, Tabplus Rio Tablet, Reliance 3G Tablet, Spice Mi 270, Zync Z990, Eser A10 tablet and the never ending list of tablets.
In our view the price of Rs 7,000 is little too high as we already have the famous tablets like Micromax Funbook at Rs 5500 or Attitude Daksha tablet in that range. Why would one go with Rs 1500 extra for a newly launched tablet.
