The Indian electronics manufacturer, Simmtronics, have come up with a new 7 inch tablet, XPAD Turbo. This tablet would cost you Rs 7999/- and is available at several electronics stores across the country as well as the official Simmtronics website. You can also purchase the Simmtronics XPAD Turbo Tablet from various e-commerce websites.
The Simmtronics XPAD Turbo Tablet comes with a 7 inch HD display. A 1.2 Ghz dual core processor and 512 MB RAM power up this device. The internal memory is 4 GB and can be expanded upto 32 GB by using a micro SD card. Coming to the camera, this tablet got a 2 MP rear camera and a front facing VGA camera. The Simmtronics XPAD Turbo Tablet runs on Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 Android Jelly Bean Operating System and packs in a Mali 400 graphic processor. Under the hood, you got a 2800 mAh Lithium Ion battery. The tablet can support dual SIM cards with one SIM being 2G and the other being 3G.
At a price of Rs 7999/-, we feel that it is a good offering from Simmtronics. There is nothing outstanding about this tablet and Simmtronics knows this. The features on board are limited and thus, the pricing is justified. It is to be seen that what kind of impact it has in the market. It would face tough competition from one tablet which is loved by the masses and performs really well. We are talking about the Google Nexu 7(2012). It is now available at a price of Rs 9999/- and like the Simmtronics XPAD Turbo Tablet, is a 7 inch affair. However, in terms of hardware, it is way ahead. It got an HD display with Corning Gorilla Glass protection. 1 GB of RAM and a Quad Core Nvidia processor power up this device. Together, they make it a force to reckon with. There is a front facing 1.2 MP primary camera which can record HD videos. Under the hood, you got a 4325 mAh battery. This tablet is superior to the Simmtronics XPAD Turbo Tablet in almost all the departments. The only place where it lags is the limited storage option. You can expand the Simmtronics XPAD Turbo Tablet to a maximum of 32 GB but the Nexus 7 has a maximum capacity of 16 GB. Frankly speaking, this cannot be counted as a shortcoming on the Nexus tablet because once you start loading the Simmtronics XPAD Turbo Tablet, it would start to lag because of the limited hardware on board. So, the only place where it has a definite upper hand is the SIM card compatibility department. In Nexus tablet, you cannot insert a SIM card.
