Intex has discreetly announced the i-Buddy Connect II 3G tablet, which is a new variant of its i-Buddy Connect 3G tablet unveiled earlier this year for close to Rs 10,000. First spotted by Gizbot, the second generation model is a rather toned down version. Also Read - Xiaomi silently launched Mi LED Smart TV 4C 32-inch at an introductory price of Rs 15,999
In terms of features, unlike the i-Buddy Connect, the Intex i-Buddy Connect II 3G comes with single-SIM which as the name suggests is 3G compatible. The tablet has a 7-inch WVGA display with 800×480 pixels resolution. On the software front, it runs on Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich as seen on its previous variant and many of its competitors.
The hardware includes a 1GHz dual-core Cortex A5 processor with 512MB of RAM, while the older variant came with 1GB of RAM. Other features on the tablet include a 2-megapixel rear camera and a 0.3-megapixel front camera, 4GB of internal storage, 32GB of external storage support on microSD card, voice calling support and a 3,000mAh battery which the company claims will offer up to 5 hours of talk time and up to 300 hours of standby time.
Apart from this, like the previous version this tablet also comes with Educlass which is a smart school application with content from NCERT text books for class 1- 12 as well as other interactive educational content.
The tablet will be competing against the likes of Swipe Halo Value which offers a better set of features including Android Jelly Bean and is available for Rs 7000, and Celkon CT910+ HD tablet which is available for Rs 7,999 with similar set of feature but a better OS version.
