The tablet Android love story continues and here is one more example of it – the Gpad G10. And its readying itself to do battle in the budget tablet segment, priced as it is at a quite affordable $185. In fact, at this price point it can even spoil the Augen Gentouch 78 tablet party which had created quite some ripples (if not waves) when it announced its availability from Kmart stores for $150. But does the Gpad G10 have enough features to really make a credible case for itself. Let’s find out.
To begin with, the Gpad G10’s “G10” bit might make you believe it has got a 10 inch sized screen. But that’s not the case. Instead, the Gpad G10’s display is made up of a 7 inch LCD touch screen that has a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. It has a Telechips 8902 ARM 11-based processor with a clock speed of 800MHz to run the device. It has got 256MB RAM though internal memory is pretty dismal at just 2 GB. However, to make it up, the tablet includes a microSDHC memory card slot which in turn let’s you increase the tablet’s total memory to an acceptable 32GB.
Among the other features that the tablet is endowed with includes a built-in 0.3MP camera, a HDMI slot, a 3.5mm headphone jack and an accelerometer that takes care of changing the screen orientation automatically as you fiddle with the tablet. The tablet is also capable of playing back 1080p video. The Gpad G10 will have a 2600mAh battery to ensure every bit of the tablet has enough juice while the default operating system is Android 2.1.
