Bangalore based company, Asmaitha, has launched an Android tablet Sruta which sports USB 3.0 port. As per ITProportal, Asmaitha’s Sruta is the first tablet in the world have a USB 3.0 port. I wouldn’t doubt it because, the Android tablet world is running behind Quad core processors right now and USB 3.0 might have sounded like a footnote to them.
Sruta comes with a Sony Ericsson Nova A9500 dual core 1 GHz processor, 1 GB RAM, 7 inch touch screen, Android OS, 6000 mAh battery, 8 MP camera at the back, 2MP camera in the front, and of course USB 3.0 port.
The tablet is priced at $200 and would be available later this year.
USB 3.0 – Is that a big deal?
USB 3.0 is faster than USB 2.0. If we have to put the speeds into context, then USB 3.0 is 10 times faster than USB 2.0. USB 3.0 is capable of transmitting files at 5 GB/second. Sounds exciting right?
Now, is that a big deal on a tablet?
USB 3.0 on a tablet sounds really cool. But that alone can’t be the selling point for Sruta. At best, USB 3.0 could be a feature which will get the wow. What about the rest? They are ordinary specifications. The $200 price tag is sweet touch though.
And as we have emphasized more than once, tablet isn’t a tablet until there’s a ecosystem around it. Sruta will be powered by Ice Cream Sandwich, which is making some news about being enchanting.
With iPad3 and its retina display just around the corner, tablet world will not get excited by much else. USB 3.0 on a tablet is a deft touch though. How long before everyone else follows suit and make USB 3.0 their marquee spec?
