New $99 Android Tablet Launched in India
The Indian market is lately buzzing with affordably priced Android tablets. Just this month Bharti Enterprises unveiled its Beetel Magiq and Reliance unveiled its Reliance Tab 3G. Now, there is a Bangalore based company called Lakshmi Access Communication Systems (LACS) which have launched yet another Android based tablet in the Indian market. The great news is that this particular device is priced as low as $99 (around 5,000 INR).
This is a 7-inch tablet device called the Magnum Pepper Tablet PC, which runs Android 2.2 FroYo. It is unclear whether it has a capacitive or a resistive touchscreen our money is on resistive and of course, we will update you once this is clarified.
Furthermore, the tablet is powered by an 800 MHz processor, it includes 256 MB of RAM, WiFi connectivity, USB 2.0 port and a RJ45 LAN port for wired internet connectivity. It lacks 3G support, but the company has mentioned that it is 3G dongle compatible. Additionally, it supports microSD card up to 32 GB, has a front facing camera and 2GB of built-in storage.
Now, this tablet is definitely quite obsolete due to it is low specifications, but we are still quite impressed with this device as they have tried to compensate for the lack of some hardware, and it is priced incredibly low.
