Created by Datawind, the UbiSlate 7Ci boasts a 7in TFT screen, a Cortex A8 chip, 512MB of RAM and just 4GB of internal storage. Initially built to bring Internet and personal computing access to India and officially launched in the region by UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, the tablet has now landed on US and Britain shores.
But as well as basic internal specifications reminiscent of those of the first-generation iPad, the tablet comes with a host of preinstalled education, entertainment, gaming and productivity apps. And, because it runs version 4.0 of Android, it will also be able to access the Google Play Store. However, with such a small processor, it's difficult to know how well it will handle some of the more graphically intense apps; still for just US$37.99 (RM113.97), it's bound to attract interest.
