Good and Bad:
Etab Xtron looks a technology sound device with really a good price. But while the IPS panel will give the tablet decent viewing angles, the resolution seems rather low, as is expected from a tablet with this price. But still I will be looking forward to get the hands on this tablet for the other technical specifications and the tablet looks worth for Rs.6,499. The preloaded apps and the package with the box makes it more attractive.
