Intex iTAb : New Budget Tablet in Review

It seems that the war for a substantial hold over the budget tablet market in India is going to get fiercer by every passing day. Companies like Micromax, Spice, iBall, and others are fighting hard to gain the top spot. And now one more player has jumped into the fray- Intex Technologies. The company has announced an 8 inch Android tablet for the domestic market. Let me sketch a review for you to be able to know what exactly the tablet called iTab is.

But, as I always do with the budget gadgets, will first tell you about the price tag. This iTab from Intex is going to sport a price tag of 11,900 INR. And with the tablet you get a 3G data card, LAN adapter, a leather carrying case, and a pair of Reebok sunglasses; all part of the bundle.
Now, moving towards the spec sheet, the tablet comes packed with Android 2.3 gingerbread. And in the CPU and RAM section it has got a 1GHz Cortex A8 processor which is well complimented by a 512 MB DDR3 RAM. The iTab has a bright display screen of 8 inch, which has a resolution of 800x600p. The device has got an 8 GB flash memory on board which can be furthered till 40 GB via a 32GB microSD card. This tablet has a 5000 mAh battery which is capable of giving the users a work time of 5-6 hours with the Wi-Fi on. In the connectivity segment it has got Wi-Fi, 3G, USB and HDMI connectivity.
For the music lovers it has support for many formats such as MP3, WAV, WMA, AAC. And in the video genre it has AVI, MP4, MOV, 3GP. The Intex iTab comes pre-loaded with 360 degree G-Sensor feature, apps such as the Adobe Reader, Android Market and games like Angry Birds, Solitaire, Talking Tom etc. 

Many of you would agree with me that in spite of all the aforementioned features and specs the iTab seems to be a little exorbitant for its caliber. When other budget tablets are well below the 10K mark, Intex Technologies would have to pay some heed towards the pricing, otherwise the iTab is a worthwhile tablet.
