Beetel Magiq II price = Rs. 9500/-

Beetel Magiq II

Affordable and budget Beetel phones are quite popular and now the brand wants to woo the tech savvy Indian user with its Magiq II android based tablet. It is based on the Android v2.2 Froyo OS which is v2.3’s predecessor. The tablet features a 786 MHz processor, lacks a USB port and a capacitive touch screen. While the resistive touchscreen does the job, it does require more effort than a capacitive touchscreen. In simple words, users will need to apply pressure on the screen rather than just glide their fingers around to navigate and tap. Yes, it is not the most feature packed android tablet money can buy, but what sets it apart is that it has inbuilt 3G – you don’t even need a dongle, and it can double up as phone(this is the reason we included it in the list) . It also has Wi-Fi and upto 16GB expandable storage capacity, 7 inch display, two 2MP front and back cameras all in less than Rs.10,000.

Important Specifications

  • Android v2.2 (Froyo) OS
  • 7-inch TFT Touchscreen

  • Expandable Storage Capacity of 16 GB

  1. […] Lets take an example of Aakash – When Aakash was announced at Rs. 2276, although the low specs were criticized, it showed the entire world that a working tablet at that cost was possible.
