Karbonn introduces budget Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Tablet
Karbonn has introduced the first budget Android Jelly Bean 4.1 powered tablet in India. Karbonn Smart Tab 1 is the first budget tablet running latest Android Jelly Bean which will hit the Indian stores. The Smart Tab 1 from Karbonn has been priced at Rs. 6990.
Karbonn Smart Tab 1 has a 17.8cm capacitive 5-point touchscreen and sports a 1.2 GHz processor. Karbonn has tied up with MIPS Technologies which enabled the use of ultra low-power MIPS-Based™ JZ4770 SoC from Ingenic as its running core and leverages the simplicity and elegance of the MIPS architecture, resulting in features like extremely low power consumption, lightening fast 1.2GHz performance and a high level of functional integration.
The tablet will be available at pre-book from the Karbonn home website. Current users of Karbonn tablets also have something to cheer about as they will be getting free upgrade from Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
The tablet has WiFi with 3G support through USB dongle, somewhat like Micromax Funbook. Karbonn Smart Tab 1 is capable of playing FULL HD 1080p videos and also provides HDMI support. Android Jelly Bean 4.1 will make sure everything is smooth and you never get bored with the tablet in your hands. The tablet looks promising and with that price tag its a steal, there is some serious competition in this segment and we should hope other manufacturers to come up with their products soon.
