Mercury, one of the leading computer peripheral manufacturers has come with an updated version of the existing mTab tablet in the Indian market. The mTab created a buzz with triple core processor but consumers didn’t find it attractive enough to pursuit them of buying it, rather users were more attracted with Reliance 3G Tab or with Beetel Magiq tablets. The talk was eaten away by Aakash tablet which is a flop show in India. For a country obsessed with cheap tablets, Mercury mTab2 deserves to be bought by consumers.
Anyways Mercury thinks that consumers now have understood how a Rs 2,000 tablet works and known the right price of tablet is minimum of $ 200. Mercury eyeing to be the competitor of Kindle Fire atleast in India unveils Mercury mTab2 a new variant of its existing mTab tablet at sub Rs 10,000 (nearly $ 200). Approximately it’s priced at Rs 11,999 and it runs on the Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system powered with Google. It will board a 7 inches tablet and it will be faster, lighter and smarter tablet with triple core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz. Triple core processor are very rare in the market and this tablet will be a buzz although its predecessor failed with the same processor. There is no word on the Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich update of the mTab2 however the hardware is very much capable to run the ICS smoothly and perfect. I am sure Android 4.o for this tablet will be out sooner or latter.
Other hardware specifications includes 512 MB RAM, 7 inches capacitive touchscreen display, 8 GB of in built memory along with microSD card slot expandable up to 32 GB in size. It includes connectivity via USB 2.0, HDMI out port and Wi-Fi. Internet access via 3G is possible via the USB data card and there is no extra slot for 3G SIM card. The tablet weights 365 grams and provides very good battery backup life. It comes with access to Android Market to download applications, games, widgets on your tablet.
The Mercury mTab2 is right now available in the market at a price of Rs 11,999 with a warranty of 1 year through the Kobian authorized distributors in India. So what’s your take with this? So do you think that you will buy this one while leaving Amazon Kindle Fire? The specifications and features looks very better than Amazon Kindle Fire and I think you should have a good with it.
