Lava Mobile will make its first Android 4.0 based tablet called E-Tab Z7H available from today evening. The tablet will be priced at Rs 5,899 but is expected to be available for Rs 5,500. Flipkart has already been taking the preorders for the tablet for the past one week.
Siddharth Saxena, chief marketing officer of Lava International told The Mobile Indian, “The tablet will become available from today evening. There is a lot exciting content that we are offering with this tablet as well as a very attractive bundled Tata Photon dongle.”
The device has a 7 inch capacitive touchscreen with 800 x 480 pixel resolution. It has a 1.2 GHz processor coupled with 512 MB RAM and 4 GB internal memory. It only has a front facing VGA camera and 3G support through dongle. There is a 2800 mAh battery as well.
However, the big news here is the free content that will come bundled with this tablet. Lava is offering 14 books worth Rs 4,000 free from Tata Mcgraw Hill with this tablet. The books include Dhirubhai Ambani’s biography, APJ Abdul Kalam’s Ignited Minds as well as personality development books on topics like word power, preparation for interview etc.
