Last month, HCL launched three tablets, including a dual SIM tablet called ME Y3. The other two tablets are called HCL ME V1 and HCL ME U2. All the three tablets are based on Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system and have a 7 inch screen with 1 GHz processor. The basic difference is their connectivity options.
While the ME Y3 is a dual SIM tablet, the HCL V1 has only a single SIM slot. The U2 is a WiFi-only tablet but can access 3G through a USB data dongle. In V1, one can also use a dongle to access 3G apart from the internet access through its SIM card. In Y3 there is no dongle support.

Salora, which hit the smartphone market with a bang with its first handset called PowerMaxx Z1 earlier this year, has also announced its first tablet in February.
Infact, Salora launched two tablets, called Salora Pro tab and Salora Pro Tab HD for Rs 4,999 and Rs 5,499 respectively. Both tablets come with 7 inch displays, WiFi, 4 GB inbuilt memory, a 3200 mAh battery and 0.3 megapixel camera in the front. None of the two tablets come with a rear camera. The cheaper Salora Pro tab runs on Android 4.0 aka Ice Cream Sandwich operating system while the Salora Pro Tab HD is based on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
Salora Pro Tab has a 1.5 GHz dual core processor coupled with 512 MB RAM and has a 0.3 megapixel front camera, and 3200 mAh battery. The tablet comes with inbuilt memory of 4 GB. The display of this tablet supports WVGA 800 x 480 pixel resolution. Salora Pro Tab HD, on the other hand, supports better resolution of 1280 x 600 pixel and also gets a better 1 GB RAM, but only a 1.2 GHz processor. Given that it has better RAM and Android Jelly Bean performance should be appreciably better and the display resolution is also much higher.
Lava etab Xtron:
This 7 inch tablet is based on Android v4.1.1 Jelly Bean operating system and runs on a 1.5 GHz dual core processor, quad core graphics processor and 1 GB RAM. The tablet also has a 2 megapixel front camera.
Lava etab Xtron comes with a 7 inch IPS display with healthy 1024×600 pixels resolution, which means that the tablet has 178 degree viewing angle. Etab Xtron, though has 8 GB of internal memory of which 5 GB is usable, has expandable storage capacity of 32 GB via a micro SD card.
The phone is WiFi only and has a 3500 mAh battery. The tablet however misses out on HDMI port and a full USB port which we believe has been done to ensure that tablet remains slim, there is no clarity on whether it supports 3G via dongle (which we think it will) or not.
