The Indian smartphone manufacturing company Karbonn has been give it their all to create an impact in the market. They made their intentions clear by releasing a 5.9 inch phablet in the latter part of 2012 and in 2013 too they have been going great guns with Android powered budget tablets that puts them right on the platform pitted against Micromax. Karbonn TABLET is another 7 inch budget tablet that is powered by the Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system along with the 3,700 mAh standard lithium ion battery which should make the device a real catch.
Karbonn is one of the first digital equipment manufacturers in the country, which has forayed into low-cost tablet market targeting the middle and low-end consumer base. The Karbonn tablet launched by the name - Karbonn Smart Tablet 1 is its first product in this series. Karbonn Smart Tablet 1 is an 18cm or 7.1-inches Android based tablet that runs on Google's IceCream Sandwich (4.0.3) operating system. Being a low-end tablet, the Karbonn Smart Tablet 1 does not feature a SIM card and hence, any calling facility is not built into it. The screen has 5-point multi-touch scratch-resistant capacity that gives a maximum resolution of 800 x 480pixels. The Karbonn Smart Tablet 1 runs on a fast and efficient 1.2GHz XBurst processor with 512MB of RAM and 1GB of internal storage with its memory capacity expandable up to 32GB via its microSD card slot.
In terms of design, it has all the necessary ports built into it - including a 3.5mm audio jack, HDMI, mini-USB, microSD, and charging socket. There are physical keys for power, options, home and enter on top left corner on its white back skin. With curvy dimensions of 12.1cm x 0.8cm x 19.3cm, Karbonn tablet weighs a heavy 295grams. Karbonn Smart Tablet 1 comes with some good optico-features built into it. There is a front facing 2MP camera that makes video chatting very easy but is not spectacular in terms of taking photos. Though it's quite a laughing matter that Karbonn has included a 2MP camera but no in-built SIM support for net browsing (except for USB dongles) which means that most of the users will be using internet only over the Wi-Fi thereby beating the purpose of having a Tablet in the first place. It supports many video formats such as MP4, AVI, MPG, 3GP, FLV, VOB, MPEG, WMV, MOV, MKV, TS, TP, M2TS, DAT, PMP ASF and also a number of audio formats like MP3, WMA, and WAV. The sound output though is dull and crackling. The device does not support High-resolution video-playback at all, let alone playing it.
Karbonn Smart Tablet 1 has several network connectivity features built into it, which includes Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and 2G/EDGE and 3G support via external USB dongle. The specifications of Karbonn Smart Tab 1 on various product-websites claim that it has built-in Bluetooth, but it does not have it for real. Apart from that, USB2.0 is provided for serial data transfer between Karbonn Smart Tablet 1 and any other USB2.0 compatible device. Karbonn Smart Tablet 1 has been pre-loaded with loads of applications including its proprietary Karbonn browser, Karbonn Games, personal battery, and file manager. Also included are apps like - Dhingana, NexGTV, Google Maps, Video Chat applications, Facebook, CatApp, and TOI among others. A 3700 mAh battery that gives an average music playtime of 12hours or video playtime of 4.5hours with a standby time of 220hours powers Karbonn Tablet. The display drains the battery very quickly and so the battery does not have a good life. The customer support is pathetic with no service centers available even in some Tier-I cities.
