Kobian has launched another budget android tablet in India named Mercury MTab Air for Rs. 10,999. The tablet features conventional budget phone specifications and the USP lies in the added .85 Inches of diagonal length which gives it some extra credit points if 7 inch is too cramped up for you.


The 7.85 inch display sports 1024 x 768 pixels which is not quite high but is comparable to other budget android tablets. The tablet supports dual SIM connectivity and runs on Android 4.3 jelly bean operating system.

The chipset is quite primitive. You will get a 1 GHz Dual core MediaTek MT8312 processor, which is a buzz kill considering abundant quad core options available at this price range like Oplus Xonpad 7. The RAM capacity is 1 GB and internal storage is 8 GB. MicroSD support for up to 32 GB is also present.

At the imaging front is present a 2 MP primary camera at the back and a VGA shooter at the front. The battery capacity is 3800 mAh which is above average. Connectivity features include 3G, WiFi b/g/n, Blutooth 4.0 and GPS.

The tablet seems slightly overpriced at Rs. 10,999. It will compete against tablets like Dell Venue 7, First generation Nexus 7 and Oplus Xonpad 7. The phone is expected to be available for purchase by the end of February 2014
