Gurgaon, India-based industrial conglomerate Videocon Industries Ltd (commonly referred to as Videocon) recently launched Videocon VT10 tablet, which is its first foray into the congested Indian tablet market. The 10-inch tablet based on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean will reportedly be marketed with 10,999 Rupees (around $200) price tag.
Considering the Indian government is in pursuit to giving each student an affordable tablet to be used in school, VT10’s price is considerably higher, however, it comes packed with decent specs and it’s bigger.
Videocon VT10 Specs
Display. With 10.1-inch display, Videocon VT10 will be more competitive than other smaller and even more affordable tablets available in India today. Videocon used IPS LCD technology for the device featuring up to 1280 x 800 pixels resolution.
Hardware. The company didn’t provide further information about the chipset being used in this device. What we know is that it will be powered by a dual-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz. But based on the specs of its display, it is most likely a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset that is used because the resolution is high. Majority of Videocon’s smartphones uses Qualcomm’s chipsets so it shows that both have good working relationship.
Camera. VT10 reportedly sports 2-megpixel camera. The good news is, there are two of them; rear- and front-facing cameras. So, for this aspect, we really cannot expect more from the device.
Battery. Giving the device 6800mAh battery is enough to assure interested people that the device will not power down after a couple of hours or three. Considering it only has a dual-core processor and uses LCD technology for the display, the battery can last longer.
OS. The device will natively run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system. For geeks, this is attractive enough, although, Videocon didn’t say if there is an update to version 4.2 shortly after the release.
Videocon VT10 Availability
The company didn’t provide information as to when this tablet will be released, or if it will ever be marketed outside the Indian market. Internationally, Videocon VT10 has a chance to attract more enthusiasts. However, if the company isn’t ready to take on the risk, our fellow enthusiasts in India may be the only people to ever enjoy this device.
