After witnessing price war in the budget category smartphones, the market is now set to witness similar competition in affordable tablets, providing the gadget consumers more than their share of money worth for low-cost computing devices.

While the recently launched Aakash tablet is absolutely incomparable in terms of its value and utility due to its subsidized price of $35 for a nano device, the consumption trend for Reliance 3G tablet and Beetal Magiq is in for some exciting times.


While the 7-inch sized Beetal Magiq is priced trifle below the magical Rs.10000 mark, Reliance’s 3G Tab would cost you Rs.12999 with comparatively high end features and data plans in the low-cost tablet category.

Of course, there are big daddies to select from such as Samsung Galaxy and iPads of the world, but they cost a bomb vis-à-vis these budget devices. The more the sugar you put, sweeter your drink will be. While you can get the best of the touch screen in Apple’s iPad, you get relatively low touch response on capacitive screen of Reliance tab, and even lower response on resistive screen of Beetal tablet.


The 3G tab of Reliance comes with 800 MHz processor, as against 1 GHz processor in Beetal Magiq. However, both mini computer devices functions on 512 MB RAM. While Beetal’s low-cost product runs on Android 2.2 Froyo operating system, Reliance tab is coupled with Android 2.3.4 operating system.

Lastly, the 7-inch subsidized ultra-budget cost Aakash tablet provides a screen resolution of 800 x 400 and runs on Android 2.2 Froyo operating system; powered by slower 366 MHz along with HD video co-processor. Expectedly, it has 256 RAM. The price subsidy is notified only for students; for others Aakash would cost Rs.2276/-.

Latest to join the race is HCL Infosystems that has launched its all-new 7” tablet X1, based on Android 2.3 operating system with 1 GHz processor, 512 RAM – priced at Rs.10490.
