Tablet pc has gain another importance in portable sector. This thing never exists before, but thanks to Android, today people can afford a portable device for surfing, multimedia and productivity usage. But as our market is flooded with tons of models this has became a bit complicated to choose the right one. Every week we can expect around 1 to 2 tablet pc released. Somehow the awareness among features is still not known to everyone. Also Android is new for our users. Now this short guide will tell you how to choose the right budget tablet.
Before that it is important to learn what Budget Tablet is. When the word “Budget” appears you must assume a product that would not affect your economy. After purchase you will not feel as poor. Somehow without a proper advice I had seen many buying a costly device which within few months goes outdated. If we ignore the assumptions points that we have to check is hardware, design, OS and other features like storage, connectivity, warranty, updates, etc. If I say the best tablet in the world is iPad that does not mean you jump off to buy 40K costly device. Because we are already having a cheaper alternative. If in this world only iPad was the alone tablet, then it is not worth to discuss about tablets in so details. We have companies like Reliance, Penta, Micromax, Huawei, etc offering us the poor man’s tablet. They are not costly but rich with features which one would expect.
Tablets are best device for education. After announcement of Aakash by Mr.Sibal I was hoping to get one for my kid. Due to high demand this tablet does not reached in every hands. Thanks to in-house manufacturer and China we found a budget product in larger quantity. In last 8 to 9 months I heard many companies popping out from now where. iBerry, Olive, Wespro, Zync, Sylvania, Karbonn, etc are some manufacturers which are giving you a tablet within price range of Rs.5000 to Rs.10000. At the time of shopping you might find tons of product but confused what to go for and what to not.
I had taken only important point in this guide so that you can make a short list while buying.
Before giving you some of those points let’s have a glance on top budget products that we have. Let’s begin with Funbook. The first tablet with Android ICS that really worked. After Funbook, Micromax has recently released Funbook Pro. The cost of first one was Rs.6499 which offered you 7" screen and the second was for Rs 9999/- which offers you 10" screen along with higher processor, gpu and 8GB internal storage. Now what more you need. Another good tablet which was released before is HCL ME which comes for Rs.7699. Still surviving is market the tablet is made to give performance. iBall Slide was another trusted brand. This tablet is the only one that offer you keyboard and mouse connection support. It can be considered one more powerful tablet to meet your needs. Now these are some devices which we can go for blindly.
But remember that Budget tablets lack many things. They might be rich in interface, but battery performance is poor in almost every device. There is no internal 3G connectivity or slim slot provided. The storage if overloaded might make the tablet love responsive and other many more stuff. These are the features which actually differentiates a budget tablet with iPad or Microsoft Surface. As per my points mentioned below you must take a budget of Rs.6000 to Rs.15000.
