Well I call it cheapest tablet excluding the Aakash Tablet for sure. But the Aakash Tablet are always produced in limited stock, not available in stores, not available in online mega stores too. So being specific, that Byond Mi-Book Mi1 Tablet is the cheapest available tablet in the market. You can get this tablet for a price of just 4250 INR.
Now that “just” before the price may surely ponder you. But when you will get to know about the features of this tablet then the price will not be a much matter of concern. Welcome to know about the new brand of Tablets “Byond”. As the aim of new company entering into manufacturing tablet business is to “make good tablets in low price”. Byond has done the same with Byond Mi-Book Mi1 Tablet.
Mi1 Tablet is powerpacked with Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS and with a 1.2 GHz Cortex A8 processor. The face is real that in 4k INR you can get an Android 4.0 OS supported tablet. The tablet has a 7-inch capacitive touchscreen display. In my opinion the color depth of the screen does seem ok. The touch and multi-zoom functionalities work exceptional. Resolution of the screen is 800 x 480 pixels and can support Kinetic Scrolling.
It has a 0.3 MP front facing camera only camera making it the Primary camera. The quality of the photos from the camera are worse. But the camera is ok for making a video call. Whaatt most of the people worry about is about the internal memory of any Android Device. Well they have a good news, this tablet has a gigantic internal storage of 4 GB and can be expandable upto 32 GB using memory card. The tablet never fails to give pleasurable experience in watching 1080p HD videos. Byond Mi1 does support HD videos of 1080p and supports various video formats including .mkv and .flv. The main thing behing the smooth watching of videos is the 512 MB RAM. The RAM is helpful to make all your processes to work without failing them.
E-mails can be read with ease, does have office suite and Adobe Reader too. Well it has Play store so if you want any app then you can just download it comfortably using Wi-Fi or 3G dongle connectivity. Byond Mi1 Mi-book Tablet has in-built applications like: Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Gmail, Nimbuzz, TOI, Alarm Clock, Flight Mode, App Market, Calculator, World Clock. Which will help you to utilize your time efficiently. While traveling Google Maps can surely help you to find your way. The tablet is 340g in weight. Would had been happy if it was lighter(below 300g).
Byond offers a 1 year warranty on the tablet and 6 months warranty for accessories. Well to be honest as it is a new company there are very few service centres in the country. So kindly use the tablet with love and care as if anything happens it may be a situation where no one is able to help you. Talking about the most crucial aspect of the tablet is the battery storage. It has 3000 mAh Li-on Battery. Company says 3 hrs of internet browsing and 5 hours of video watching can be done. But in reality the Battery performs very low. Well if you play some great HD games then the battery will only help you till 90 mins or even less. For normal use the battery does not perform more than 2 hours as said by many customers.
So if you want to use this tablet at home or want to use it for travel journeys for less time then this tablet is for you. Otherwise keep carrying a battery charger with you for sure. As the brand “Byond” is new. Its difficult to get this tablet in local electronic stores even in major cities. But this tablet is available in online mega stores. For a price of 4,350 INR this tablet is surely worth buying for.
