Karbonn Mobiles recently announced the Karbonn Smart Tab 1, a tablet running on the MIPS-based X-Burst processor. The Tab 1, so far, shipped with Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0.3 on board, but the tablet will now come with Jelly Bean on board. The tablet has a 17.8 cm capacitive five-point touchscreen powered by a 3700 mAh battery. Featuring a gravity sensor, Wi-Fi and 3G support through USB dongle, Karbonn Smart Tab 1 comes with a 2 MP front camera, along with pre-embedded applications like Karbonn Smart Browser and Karbonn Smart games. An upgrade to Android 4.1 will be available to customers who purchased the earlier version of this tablet.



"With its unmatched combination of high performance and ultra-low power consumption, the MIPS-Based Ingenic SoC was a natural choice for our new tablet. Long battery life, leading-edge features and a wealth of local content make the Karbonn Smart Tab 1 an ideal product for the Indian market. Building on our success with mobile handsets in India, Karbonn is pleased to be a leader in bringing an Android 4.1 tablet to the market, and the first company in the world to offer an Android 4.1 tablet at such an affordable price point. We intend to be the leading marketer in the Indian tablet market, wherein we wish to reach up to 200 thousand units per month by focusing on enterprise business solutions, segmentation, education, healthcare, hospitality and next-generation business verticals," said Pradeep Jain, Managing Director, Karbonn Mobiles.

The Karbonn Smart Tab 1 is now available in India for Rs. 6999 (approximately US$125). The tablet is available via the Karbonn website, as well as numerous online portals and retail outlets in India such as Reliance Digital and Walmart.



"This new tablet demonstrates continued adoption of our cost-effective JZ4770 SoC in mobile devices. The JZ4770 SoC leverages the simplicity and elegance of the MIPS architecture, and features extremely low power consumption, 1.2 GHz performance, and a high level of functional integration. Millions of tablets are already shipping around the globe based on our design, and we anticipate increasing success as an increasing number of companies recognize the differentiation our solution can enable," said Qiang Liu, Chairman and CEO of Ingenic Semiconductor.



"After joining with Ingenic to announce the world's first Android 4.0 tablet in December, we have achieved numerous additional tablet design wins. Working closely with Ingenic and its OEMs, we are seeing increasing success for the MIPS architecture in tablets, especially in emerging markets such as China, Indonesia and India. With our deep expertise in Android development, we are able to quickly port new versions of Android to MIPS-Based devices, with speed that is second only to Google itself," said Gideon Intrater, Vice President of Marketing, MIPS Technologies.
