The latest to hit technology space in the rapidly evolving tablet market in India is the all-powerful TabTop, being hailed as the nation's thinnest tablet.
Milagrow Humantech recently announced the TabTop tablet, a super slim device at just 6.5mm thickness. The TabTop runs Android 4.0 and comes equipped with a 4,000 mAh battery that the company boasts will give over 10 hours of usage.
The 7-inch LED display is possibly one of the best features, boasting a massive utilizable area with a screen aspect ratio of 4:3, which is 51 percent higher than the usual 16:9 aspect ratio for a tablet, said Milagrow on its website.
The display is oleophobic, i.e. resistant to finger oil and its super HD screen allows viewing of high resolution videos and pictures.
Among other features pre-installed in the TabTop are 55 of the best applications, including Google Play & Indian Android Market, making it India's first and only "Ready to use TabTop." The device also has 4G connectivity including Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and an external hard disk drive of 500GB.
Keeping the Indian consumer in mind, the TabTop comes with language keyboards covering over 60 languages, including Hindi, and has speech-to-text versatility, Afaqs.com said.
The impressive hardware that makes all this possible is the 1.2 GHz processor coupled with Dual Mali 400 MP, the world's first multi-core GPU - OpenGL ES 2.0 conformant, making it the fastest tablet in its category.
"We are committed to providing the world's best technology to the Indian consumer even as we keep the market realities in mind," Milagrow Founder Mr. Rajeev Karwal said according to the website. "With so many non-serious players in the market who just want to exploit the opportunity, it is a tough task to keep coming up with quality products at affordable prices. I am proud of our team to have given the most potent, world's only TabTopTM 7.4 to the Indian market."
The super slim slate comes in two variants and costs Rs. 10,990 for the 4GB model and Rs. 13,990 for the 16GB.
The TabTop poses serious competition to Toshiba's Excite, once acclaimed as the world's thinnest tablet. Running on Android 4.0, the Excite is about .62mm thick and has a 10-inch display. The device is powered by a 1.2 GHz Dual-Core Texas Instruments OMAP 4430 processor with 1GB of RAM and comes on 16GB and 32 GB variants. The TabTop, on the other hand, is powered by a 1.2 GHz Mali 400 MP multicore Dual OpenGL ES 2.0 conformant GPU Mali 400 MP, Afaqs said.
On the camera front, the Excite, yet to be released in India, sports a 2 megapixel front-facing camera and a 5MP rear-facing camera capable of taking 1080p video. The TabTop, on the other hand, features a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera with several camera capabilities like Face Detection and Instant Focus, but lacks a rear camera.
