Karbonn has unveiled a new Ice Cream Sandwich running tablet, called the Smart Tab 1. This latest tablet by Karbonn will be powered by a 1.2 GHz processor and will be another one in the low budget Android tablet segment. There have been a range of 7 inch tablets in the market now and what may set the Smart Tab 1 apart from the competition is its pricing

The Smart Tab!

Here's what the spec sheet for the Smart Tab 1 looks like:

17.8cm capacitive 5 point touch screen
1.2 GHz processor
Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich
1080p video playback
HDMI out
Wi-Fi, 3G via USB dongle
2 megapixel front camera
microSD card expandable up to 32GB
3700 mAh battery

From the looks of it, the Smart Tab 1 will directly compete with Micromax's Funbook which we will be reviewing shortly. Along with this tablet, according to our sources, Karbonn is planning to launch two new budget Android smartphones, the A7 and the A9. Both the phones will be dual SIM, will run on Gingerbread 2.3.6 and will be powered by a 1 GHz processor. The main difference between the two phones will be that the A7 will have a 2.8-inch screen while the A9 will have a bigger 3.8-inch screen. For more specs and details on these upcoming handsets, stay tuned to this space.

Pricing and availability for the Smart Tab 1 haven’t been revealed as of now, but considering it’s up on the home site, the product will be on shelves in the coming week or two. Also, Karbonn have put up a Book Now option on the Smart Tab 1 so if you’re interested in purchasing this device in bulk, you can click here to get more details.

From the looks of it, the Karbonn Smart Tab 1 doesn’t look majorly different from any of the other seven-inch tablets in town and hence the major differentiating factor could be the build quality, how fluid the interface is and at what price is this selling at. Speaking about the price, how much would you pay for the Karbonn Smart Tab 1?
