Extremely compact, portable and lightweight, you don't have to think twice about taking this tablet along wherever you go
A tablet PC, or simply tablet, is a complete mobile computer, larger than a mobile phone or personal digital assistant, integrated into a flat touch screen and primarily operated by touching the screen. It often uses an onscreen virtual keyboard, a passive stylus pen, or a digital pen, rather than a physical keyboard and running a standard PC operating system like Windows, Android or Linux.
While doing the budget tablet shootout, we came across a number of handy tablets in the range of just 4-5k. At such a low price, those tablets had so much to offer. XPad X720 from Simmtronics Semiconductors is the latest addition to the the budget tablet PC segment. Price-wise, it is in the same league as Aakash 2, but quality-wise it is superior on several counts.
The device's 7-inch display with a similar screen resolution of 480p seems brighter. Speaker packs more power than the likes of Aakash 2 and BSNL Tpad IS709C and can be used as a portable music player. The 1 GHz Cortex A8 processor, Android 4.0 and 512 MB RAM, like in Aakash 2 provide for smooth browsing, typing, video playing and gaming experience.
The front camera, placed on the diagonal edge, is a VGA and is quite satisfactory for video chatting. It supports 3G but through a USB dongle, which means you will have to spend 2k more on it. But then Aakash 2 and BSNL Penta tab don't support 3G or 2G either, and the only way to surf internet on them is through Wi-Fi. The tab has a better battery, which gives more than 4 hours of back-up on non-stop video playback. All the buttons and ports are placed neatly on one side of this sleek looking lightweight tablet.
