Wespro ePad : Cheapest Tablet available in India! Cost : Rs. 7999

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.

 

Wespro-1

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 :

  • Processor: VIA WM8505 400MHz Wespro-2
  • Operating System: Google Android 1.9 OS
  • Display: 7 Inches Display Screen
  • RAM: 128MB
  • Internal Memory: 2GB Nand Flash
  • External Memory: Expandable up to 32GB with TF Card
  • Built-in Wi-Fi: 802.11b/g
  • File Format: Support MP3/WMA/MPEG4/MPEG2/MPEG1/3GP/DIVX/XVID
  • Battery Backup: 4-5 Hours
  • Functions: Internet surfing, information searching and News reading
  • Multimedia: Play Music, Movies and Online Games
  • Battery: Li-polymer 7.4V 1400mAh
  • Weight: 0.42kg
  • Size: 20.3 x 13.6 x 1.0 cm
  • Ethernet connectivity and the package contains the connector too. (source)
  • 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.

    1. The configuration, specially the built-in RAM is pretty low end. It should still serve a lot of people who want to own an iPad or a tablet for their esteem. Otherwise the config of Samsung Galaxy cannot be beaten in the business gadget category for sure.

    2. i have bought this touch pad thinking it would run tata photon plus(mobile broadband) but it doesn't.
      i wanted ask whether this problem is due to it's Android OS ?
      If yes is there a way to change OS to Window CE or some other OS that would support tata photon plus.

    3. Posting this review with hope that this might be useful to a potential ePAD, specially Wespro epad buyer, or for that matter anybody interested in buying one of these chinese low cost MID's what they call.

      I am using the 3rd unit now and know this inside out. This is based on a Wondermedia chipset from VIA. With very little RAM and low speed. No bluettoth, very very poor wify with a range of about 5 feet only. Cumbersome 3G, whhich will work in 1/5 cases only. The Android appmarket, the interesting part of Android fee OS is fake here. This is a chinese app market with no propers apps.

      Most Important, this is a huge security too. You would think this is Google appmarket and give your Google login id and password here unknowingly, but you just gave the google credentials to a chinese hacker! When I pointed this to Wespro support people they said they cannt do anything on this as the OS comes pre-loaded from China.

      With much effort and some knowledge of internet I found some good apps from here and there and installed. Sharing them if it helps somebody – http://www.webkriti.com/android/

    9. you shouldn’t buy this tablet
      bcoz this got only 400 MHz processor which is not suitable for good tablet pc
      even the low end android phones come up with atleast 600 Mhz processor :)
      android 1.9 is outdated android OS n
      you should look for atlest 2.2 (Froyo)
      Though you have to increase your budget for that

      n cool model by the way (external looks) :)
