Lava To Launch 4.2 Android Tablet By Next Month

Lava has made it a point to stay in the headlines it seems – as we know they have released an array of Android powered devices of late. Now, Lava are on the verge of announcing another tablet – which is said to be a 7inch tablet powered by a either a 1.5GHz dual core processor or a quad core processor coupled with 1GB of DDR3 RAM, which sounds like a powerful tablet for casual use. The USP of this device is that it is said to run Android 4.2 out of the box, which is the latest Android version from Google. The overall configuration sounds similar to the recent Lava Xtron tablet, but we will know the difference only after release of this new unnamed tablet.

The tablet is expected to have an SVGA resolution of 1024×600 on its 7inch display panel. As far as storage is concerned, there is 8GB of inbuilt storage, and a microSD slot which can accept microSD cards upto 32GB in size. For internet connectivity there is WiFi and the option to use 3G/EVDO dongles, which comes in quite handy when you’re on the move. To power the tablet there is a 3700mAh battery which should have enough juice to keep the tablet running for about 4 hours with WiFi on. There’s a VGA camera on the front to assist video calls and a 2 megapixel rear camera for the occasional photograph. The OS being Android 4.2, will make usage very simple even for users who are new to Android.

Expected Pricing & Availability

Just like their previous tablets we would expect this new tablet to be priced in the range of 6000-8000 INR. The tablet should be available in retail stores and online stores by May end. Lava were quite innovative with their advertising last time round – store coupons were offered with every tablet in case of the Xtron, we hope to see some more innovation in order to get customers’ attention.
