Xolo Play Tegra Note up for pre-orders ahead of the official launch for Rs 17,999

With only a couple of hours to the official launch, Xolo has started accepting pre-orders for the Play Tegra Note tablet. Clicking on the pre-book tab on Xolo’s official website takes you to Flipkart, wherein the tablet is up for pre-orders for Rs 17,999.

Those pre-ordering the tablet via Flipkart will also receive a smart cover from Xolo worth Rs 2,499 for free. Flipkart is also offering cash-on-delivery options as well as EMI options on the purchase of the tablet. There’s no mention of how long the online retailer will take to ship the tablet.

To recap, the tablet flaunts a 7-inch (1280×800 pixels) display and is powered by a Tegra 4 SoC featuring a quad-core Cortex A15 CPU, which also includes a fifth core for better battery efficiency and a massive 72-core GeForce GPU. It is also bundled with a double-sided stylus, which essentially lets users operate the tablet using both the tips of the stylus.

Other features include a 5-megapixel rear camera, VGA front camera with software add-ons like Camera Awesome app, 16GB of internal storage that can be expanded to up to 32GB using a microSD card and a battery that is good enough for 10 hours of HD video playback.

The tablet runs on stock Android Jelly Bean and Nvidia will be pushing OTA Android updates rather than relying on its hardware vendor partners.
