iBall has launched a New tablet, iBall Edu-Slide, which targets IIT-JEE aspirants by providing pre-installed preparation material. The hardware specifications are also pretty good but the price is a little too steep at 30,999 for Wifi version and 35,999 for 3G variant.
The Study material will be from renowned Bansal classes, famous among IIT JEE aspirants. Includes a master problem package, eBooks for Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics with personalization tools and online evaluation test package.
The display is 10.1 Inch IPS HD display with 1280 x 1024 pixels. This will give you pixel density of 165 ppi which is pretty good clarity for a tablet. The operating system employed is Android 4.1 jelly bean operating system.
The Wi-Fi version will come with 1.5 GHz dual core processor and the 3G version will come with a quad core processor whose clock frequency has not been specified. The RAM capacity of 1 GB backs up these processors and the internal storage capacity will be 8 GB. This storage is further extendable to 32 GB.
The primary camera has an 8 MP sensor and the front camera is a VGA camera which could be used for video calling. The battery capacity is 8000 mAh.
