If I were to say, it’s raining tablets in India, that would still be an understatement. When we started TGF, we were expecting to write a lot on the tablet pc’s aka mobile Internet devices. We never expected to write about them so much and so soon. This might be the seventh tablet PC we are covering in less than a month. Wespro Digital has a MID called ePad and the cost of it is Rs. 7999. This by far is the cheapest tablet available in India. Binatone Home Surf is available for Rs. 8990.
ePad’s specs are comparable to the recently launched Accord @Pad. If I were to go through them it would be a copy paste except for few things.
Wespro ePad’s specifications :
Wespro ePad and Accord @Pad run almost the same processor. Not sure if there was a typo or not but, both run a 400 MHz VIA processor. ePad runs a VIA WM8505 and @pad runs a VIA VM8505. Wespro ePad runs Android 1.9 operating system unlike @Pad which runs 1.7 out of the box.
Weight of ePad is 0.42 kg which is far less than @pad’s weight of a one kilogram. ePad costs less than @Pad by one thousand rupees.Weight and the price are two things which make Wespro ePad a better bet than Accord @Pad. Another notable feature is the ability to play DIVX/XVID file formats which none of the other MID’s have offered. If video playback is your key criteria then ePad could be your MID of choice.
