Kobian has launched Amercury mTab Neo 2 tablet in India today. The tablet is Android 4.0 ICS ready. The price of the tablet is set at Rs 14,999 (INR). This includes the one year warranty given out by the company.
The Mercury mTab Neo 2 Tablet runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread. The company behind the tablet, Kobian, says that the tablet would fully support Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich once it is out within just four weeks from now.
The price for mTab Neo2 is relatively high when compared to other tablets launched in the past few weeks. Many tablets including Mercury mTab Neo 2 would be supporting the Android 4.0 such as HCL ME Tab U1 and MyEdu Tab K12 and HE, Micromax’s Funbook, Zync’s Z-990 etc. But Mercury mTab Neo 2 has a dual core 1.2 GHz processor (ARM Cortex A8) to support its high price. It has in built 3G connectivity and support for voice call.
The tablet is equipped with 512 MB RAM and an internal memory of 8 GB. It supports memory expansion up to 32 GB using a microSD card. Other features of the tablet include 16:9 aspect ratio with multi touch display. It has a color display of 1,600K colors. It also supports Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth and 3G.
The Mercury mTab Neo 2 has both front facing as well as back camera to support face to face chatting. It also has an HDMI output port to stream high quality HD video. The battery life of the tablet is around 6 hours.
Mrs. Sushmita Das, Country Manager for India, Kobian said that – “Work, talk and share your stuff at high speed, with mTab Neo2. This product comes with all the features one can ask for in the current tablet ecosystem and a little more with the upgrade to Android 4.0. It’s a beautifully bundled feature rich product from Mercury. The long battery life is the topping the ice which will surely attract more customers and hence will help our partners sell more.”
Mercury has already released two tablets mTab Neo and mTab2 before the launch of this tablet. The first tablet launched by Mercury was in August, 2011.
It gives us an idea how the battle between companies is getting hotter for newer and newer products. The product life cycle has drastically come down and the battle for new product launch is gaining momentum. In these circumstances, the ultimate gainer is the end consumer who has variety of options to choose from and all at affordable prices.
