Zen Mobile has launched the Zen UltraTab A900 in India, for Rs. 7,999. Featuring a 9-inch touchscreen, the tablet runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and comes with a host of apps preloaded.
The Zen UltraTab A900 is powered by a 1.5GHz processor, coupled with 512MB of DDR3 RAM. The 9-inch display is bizarrely quite low-res, negating the size advantage, at 800x480 pixels. It does offer 5-point multi-touch functionality however, like most of the current crop of budget ICS tablets.
Other features of the Zen UltraTab A900 include Wi-Fi connectivity, 3G connectivity via USB dongle, microUSB slot with USB On-The-Go, 1.3MP camera, 4GB built-in storage, 32GB microSD card support, 3.5mm headphone jack, and a 4,000 mAh battery rated to deliver up to 3.5 hours of video playback, and 14 hours of Wi-Fi usage.
The Zen UltraTab A900 will come with plenty of apps preloaded, such as Bollywoodji, ibibo, Kundli, nexGTV, Nimbuzz, MapmyIndia, Mig 33, Paytm, Readers Hub, Music Hub, Rummy, and Teenpatti. Zen Mobile has also skinned ICS with their own UI, called Ultra Tab sense, which features a 3D homescreen, and a variety of widgets.
Speaking at the launch, Deepesh Gupta, Managing Director of Zen Mobile, said, “After the successful launch of Zen UltraTab A100, we believe the Indian consumers were waiting for a new product in the 9-inch screen space… Powered with the latest Android 4.0 operating system and a 5 point multi touch capacitive screen, it [the Zen UltraTab A900] is built to appeal to a cross section of users which varies from avid gamers, busy professionals, thrill-seeking youngsters or even the multi-tasking homemakers; it’s an ultimate on-the-go- entertainment hub to bring welcome change to their busy life.”
