Computer peripheral manufacturer Kobian, which operates under the brand name Mercury, has launched its mTAB Lite phablet in India. This device measures 12mm in thickness, has a 7-inch screen, weighs 320gram and has been priced at Rs 6,000.
Mercury mTAB Lite sports a 7-inch touchscreen, 1GHz Vimicro Cortex processor alongside 512MB RAM and 4GB of internal storage expandable by 32GB via a memory card. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Micro-USB and 2G data with voice calling, which is probably why the company positioning the device as a ‘phablet’ rather than a tablet.
Mercury mTAB Lite comes with VGA front and rear cameras and the built-in browser supports Adobe Flash 11.1. It runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and is powered by a 2,700mAh battery.
Commenting on the launch, Sushmita Das, Country Manager, India at Kobian Pte Ltd, said, “We are glad to announce the launch of mTAB Lite – ultra slim phablet. Wide screen, dual cameras, SIM for calling, powerful processor, OS that offers apps, games etc. are the major features required in a tablet. We at Kobian are focusing to introduce better models in the phablet segment that will meet today’s consumer demand pattern for computing devices and better prices.”
