It will be the first time that any device in India will get the latest Android Jelly Bean update.
Karbonn had announced its first Android 4.1 Jelly Bean tablet in India, Smarttab 1 sometime back. But the users who bought the Android 4.0 ICS based version need not be disappointed as the company plans to make the Jelly Bean update available in the first week of September itself.
"The Jelly Bean update for the existing Smarttab 1 users will be available in the first week of September. Users will be able to update their tablet over the air (no need to connect to PC), shortly after the updated tablet starts shipping to the users," a spokesperson of the company told 'The Mobile Indian'.
Karbonn SmartTab 1 comes with a 7 inch capacitive screen, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS, 1.2 GHz processor and 3700 mAh battery. It also has a mini HDMI port (to connect it to a TV), a micro SD card slot for storage of up to 32 GB, and also a USB port that can be used for a 3G USB dongle. The tablet, which bears a 2 megapixel camera, has a 3D gravity sensor for better gaming. The tablet is priced at Rs 6,999.
