Cheapest 3G tablet launched in South Africa
Online electronics distributor TabletWorld has launched one of the cheapest full-featured 3G tablets in South Africa, with a price tag of just R2299.
The Dynapad is a 7″ tablet with a 1GHZ Qualcomm processor, Android 2.2 and a 5 megapixel camera. It comes pre-installed with a range of apps including Angry Birds, Kindle reader, TuneinRadio, Facebook, Twitter, News24, DropBox, Soundhound, Jango and IMDB.
“With this product, we want to make premium tablets accessible to a whole new segment of the market that could not afford them before. The wide selection of apps available for this Android device as well as the low price-tag makes it perfect for businessmen that need access to work documents and emails on the go,” said TabletWorld founder Laurence Seberini.
The 7 inch WVGA LCD capacitive touch screen has a resolution of 800×480 pixels, and features 32GB of storage space, although that can be increased with the use of a microSD card. It features Built-in 3G and has been tested on all of SA’s major mobile operators, and WiFi.
“It is also a perfect fit for people who want Web and email access, yet cannot afford a full-featured PC or notebook. And if you already own a notebook, you’ll love the freedom that having a lightweight mobile device gives you to be productive without dragging your mobile computer everywhere you go,” he added.
