iBall Slide Gorgeo 4GL: Affordable 4G tablet

The iBall Slide  Gorgeo 4GL   offers dual 4G slots & flash-assisted front camera

It's  smart to go in for a 4G phone this year as almost every major provider  has announced  4G services. There's no reason why tablets  should be left behind -- and iBall's new tablet  ( iBall Slide Gorgeo 4GL)  the   throws in dual 4G SIM slots for good measure.  Both  cameras -- 8 megapixel rear and 5 megapixel front   come with flash.  You  want  to  beef up your photography, the tablet  also takes  a set of SLR lenses that you can buy for Rs 1499.

The 1 GHz quad  core64 bit processor backed by 1 GB RAM is up to most tasks  and you can expand the built-in 8GB RAM   to 32 GB with a micro SAD card.  The   7 inch  1024 by 600 IPS display  is on the lower side of HD. 

Apps wise,  I  have come to appreciate  the combo of preloads that iBall has always provided  -- in this case,  games like All Star Cricket, Asphalt  Nitro and MotoCross  and a very comprehensive  info and current news package in Newshunt.   The company is a loyal supporter of Opera -- which is good, because  the latest iteration of Opera Mini has a host of user- friendly features  including   clever software to reduce data usage  during video downloads.

The makers throw in three different  USB cables so connecting to all  types of ports is a cinch.   At Rs 6999, this is good value for money. --Anand Parthasarathy.  February 6 2016
