Kobian Group, the maker of Mercury brand of computer components and peripherals, recently launched its second tablet device, the Mercury mTab Neo. This device is the successor of the not-so-popular Mercury mTab2 tablet. The previous model had only Wi-Fi and external 3G support, but the new Mercury mTab Neo features in-built 3G and SIM support for voice and video calling.
This tablet comes with a 7 inch capacitive touchscreen display and a powerful 1 GHz dual core Cortex A9 processor. Most of the entry-level tablets currently available in the market runs on the Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) OS. However, the Mercury mTab Neo runs on the super old Android 2.2 (Froyo) OS. Check out the complete specs below.
Sushmita Das, Country Manager – India, Kobian Pte Ltd, said,
