The price for the Byond Mi-book Mi7 suggests that the tablet is here to take on the budget-friendly segment that boasts of devices like Tab 8 Velox and Spice Stellar Pad amongst a number of others. It is already up for sale through various retail channels as well as select online resellers.
The Mi-book Mi7 is the proud owner of a capacitive 5-point display that offers a multi-touch real estate spanning 7 inches. This TFT LCD display allows users to view digital content in 1024 x 600p resolution. Featuring the voice calling function, the device has a built-in 3G module for facilitating fast internet access sans a USB dongle. It comes drenched in the shade of black and will soon be released in pristine white.
Powered by the Android OS, it runs the Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4 platform, but the company hasn’t mentioned anything about an OTA Jelly Bean update. The slab comes armed with dual cameras – a 2MP rear-facing shooter and a 0.3MP VGA front-mounted webcam. These snappers should not only enable users to capture decent images and record videos, but also make face-to-face video calls over the internet.
Besides 3G, this device offers wireless internet access via its built-in Wi-Fi, if there is an open hotspot in the immediate vicinity. It gains steam from a 1.2GHz dual core processor which is powerful enough to extend support to multiple applications simultaneously. 512MB of DDR3 RAM helps the chipset to ensure smooth multitasking and navigation. A 3200mAh lithium-ion battery has been thrown into the mix as well.
Measuring 120 x 190 x 9.3 millimeters, the slate is light in weight at merely 344 grams. It packs in 4GB of internal storage for digital data and even allows prospective customers to expand the memory by up to 32GB with a little assistance from a microSD card. Embedded with a USB port and a standard 3.5mm headset jack for connecting peripherals, the device arrives with GPS for turn-by-turn navigation.
The Byond Mi-book Mi7 is available now for Rs. 10,999 a pop through Flipkart.
