Gamers can rely on the Mali-400 GPU for decent graphics.
For those looking to video chat, the tablet comes with 2MP of front camera. Storage of files, be they vital documents or your favorite films, is made easy by the 4GB internal space, expandable using microSD card up to 32GB. Completing this attractive package are the connectivity options, which include 3G (using appropriate USB dongle), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and microUSB. The device runs on a 3100mAh Li-ion battery.
