The latest to come from the house of Beetel is the Glide Android tablet. However, the Glide is more of an upgraded version of the original Beetel Magiq than a completely new development. As such, much of the feature of the original Magiq is also part of the latest Beetel Glide though the display has fortunately been changed for the capacitive type, which is indeed a welcome development.
So the specs sheet for the Beetel Glide looks like this: a 7 inch display (the tablet though is a bit elongated and hence looks more like a smartphone on steroids), a 1 Ghz CPU, Android 2.2 Froyo, 8 GB of internal storage with the option of adding 16 GB more via microSD card slots along with front and rear camera of 2 megapixel resolution. The tablet also boasts of both Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity and is powered by a 2200mAh battery.
“The Magiq Glide is the latest addition to our successful Magiq range of tablets which has been highly appreciated by the Indian consumers. After an extensive market research and keeping in mind the feedback received from our customers on our previous products we have come up with the Magiq Glide. The new tablet has all the features available in our previous products which our customers liked and additionally we have added a capacitive touch screen to enrich the touch experience,” said Mr. Vinod Sawhny, Executive Director and CEO, Beetel Teletech Limited during the tablet’s unveiling.
The Beetel Magiq was a decent tablet device and now with one of its biggest grouses taken care of with a capacitive display in place of the resistive screen in the former, the Glide at Rs. 11,999 can be a lucrative buy.
