iBall, the makers of the Andi series of phones have introduced the Slide Q9703 in India which is a mid-range tablet that refrains from breaking the bank, thanks to its reasonable price. The slab is here to give a tough competition to the likes of Zync Quad 10.1, Wammy Magnus and Desire 2 amongst others, all of which have been blessed with 4-core processors.
The iBall Slide Q9703 plays successor to a number of slates belonging to the performance series of the company. This device claims to be crammed with a ‘string of extra-ordinary features’ as well as an HD display. Its chipset processes at a maximum speed of 1.2GHz for ensuring relatively fast multitasking at all times and takes the help of 2GB of RAM for maintaining smooth navigation.
As far as the interface is concerned, customers can expect it to be fairly intuitive as the slate is powered by the Android Jelly Bean 4.1 OS. An octa core GPU shoulders the responsibility of delivering eye-pleasing graphics via a 10.1-inch Retina QXGA IPS 2048 x 1536p multi-touch screen with a pixel density of 264ppi.
Hoarding digital content in the tab will hardly be a problem as the slab has 16GB of onboard memory. And in case users need more free space, they can choose to insert a microSD card in the dedicated slot for additional storage of not more than 32GB. A 2MP camera is placed on the front for video calling purposes and a 5MP snapper sits on the back for capturing good-quality pictures and videos.
And what’s more, this affordably-priced tablet extends support to 4K ultra HD videos of up to 4096 x 2160p resolution and even plays as many as 4 videos at the same time. Its popup window function can be used for opening another application while watching a video. There’s Bluetooth, HDMI and Wi-Fi and it offers 3G connectivity too, but via an external dongle. The device can be expected to go strong for a long time as it draws power from an 8000mAh battery.
The iBall Slide Q9703 will be up for sale in India for a price of Rs. 15,999.
