The 7 inch tablet will have Android 2.3 OS along with a 1 GHz processor.
Lava Mobiles, an Indian handset manufacturer which forayed into the Android segment with the S12 smartphone, will launch an Android tablet in February.
S N Rai, co-founder and director, Lava Mobiles, said to The Mobile Indian, "Lava will launch an Android 2.3 based tablet in February for Rs 5,500."
He further said, "The tablet will be made available bundled with a service provider's connection and will not be available as a standalone device." Though he did not reveal the name of the service provider, he said that the telco is operational across India.
On the specification front, he said, "The tablet will be a 7 inch capacitive touchscreen tablet, and will have a 1 GHz processor. It will also support a SIM slot as it will help our operator partner to push their data services."
Rai also added that Lava Mobiles is in advance stage of talks with Intel for providing the processor for the tablet.
He further added Lava, is working on specific apps ranging from education to health and most probably these will come pre-loaded in the tablet.
Initially, Lava Mobiles was supposed to launch the Android tablet in December.
Explaining the reason behind the delay, Sunil Raina, chief marketing officer for Lava Mobiles, said, "We wanted to launch a quality product in the market and didn't want to hurry. As a result, our research and development team took a bit longer to give the final shape to the tablet."
