Overall: Update Sep 16: Yes, it was an unwarranted risk buying this product. This is now dead and my 5k is down the drain! Thanks milagrow!nnTook the risk and bought this relatively unknown tablet.nnPros:n1. Nice look and feel - the glossy, slipper back is a bummer thoughn2. Excellent battery life - getting more than 10 hours on casual browsing, YouTube, eBook reading, etc (surprising, coz Androids are known to be battery inefficient, having owned 2 Android phones, before switching to Windows Phones for good)n3. Very good support from Milagrow prior to buying this tablet - answered my queries promptly, and with a smile :)n4. Detected my Airtel 3G dongle (Huawei E1732) in a matter of seconds - thumbs up!nnCons:n1. Not so good display - I simply don't believe the A+ blah, blah in the product descriptionn2. Touch response is not greatn3. Display viewing angles - pathetic!n4. Not so fast Cortex A8 processor - well, the description says 1.2 GHz, however, all of the sys info that I have used say that this is clocked at 1GHz onlyn5. Oh, forgot to add: though it says JellyBean ready, there's no roadmap/timeline on when it will be rolled out to the devices. Good marketing, I'd say!nnSo, it's hard to decide whether to buy this tab looking at the pros and cons above. Well, it's a good buy if only priced at Rs. 3900. I don't think it's worth the 1K extra. nnSpecial mention: Flipkart's offer of free screenguard - it's the worst ever screenguard you could ever find. This is one of the clearest indications that flipkart is going the enterprise way - taking customers for granted!
