India's First Official Tablet - OlivePad

With the iPad yet to be officially launched in India and the Notion Ink Adam taking it's sweet time, Olive Telecom launched India's first official tablet - the OlivePad VT100. The OlivePad is available in all Croma stores from eh first week of August (well, I am a bit late in posting this).

So what exactly can a customer expect from the OlivePad. Let's have a look at the features -

  • To start with, it has a 7 inch capacitive touchscreen. 
  • It runs on the Android OS. 
  • It is 3G enabled along with WiFi (but we don't have 3G facility in India yet. Come on, give me a break...when are we going to have 3G for the private carriers????)
  • It has dual cameras, a 3 MP at he back and a front camera for video calling.
  • GPS, e-book reader and web browsing with Flash support are some of the other features. 
It's price is about Rs. 25000 INR (which corresponds to about $500 approx). And there are talks that it will be launched in Europe in the near future.
