Dubai: India has now launched the world’s most affordable tablet computer in Dubai.
The 7-inch tab in the XPad series, priced at Dh299, was unveiled during a press conference in Dubai on Wednesday.
Manufacturer Simmtronics said the tab has become the “hottest selling” product in the Asia-Pacific region with a current order booking of almost 500,000 units.
The High Definition display and Wi-Fi enabled model runs on Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) operating system.
It also supports 3G connectivity and has a TF card and USB port.
According to the Gulf News, the XPad’s 7-inch model is just about Dh80 more expensive than the Dh220 commercial version of the Aakash tab in India, which has been touted as the world’s cheapest tab.
