It’s like the Dumb, Dumber and Dumbest!”

Akash tablet

After Aakash literally disappeared in ‘thin air’, please welcome the new brothers: 7+ and 7C! The hoopla of the cheapest ever tablet made in India began about a year ago. God forgive me for being so naïve that I believed that this 7” Android 2.3 will change the way technology is accepted in my country when it was all a little dirty prank. The technology is marvelous for having produced this technical gem in less than Rs. 3000. But in India, every research in brilliant and its only when it is applied that it leads to a fiasco. Aakash, or the Ubislate as it is commercially known, has lost its shine in all the controversies and blame games played by the government, IIT Rajasthan, Datawind and Quad Electronic. Amongst the 1000 tablets that were to be distributed by the government to students, less than 400 have reached their fate and [+more]

iBerry Auxus AX02: New Tab on the Block!

iberry-160212

Hail another competitor in the sub-10k range of tablets out in the Indian market. While iBerry had initially launched a tablet with the Gingerbread OS, it quickly launched the Auxus 02 with an upgraded Android ICS. At Rs. 9, 990, it is pitted directly against offerings from Zync, Intex, iBall and the like. But will this be the game-changer in this segment? The standouts: While at the first look, this 7-inch capacitive touch screen tablet has a familiar design, I love the circular button in the centre made from steel which renders the Auxus 02 a distinct, classier look over its counterparts. Its screen is responsive and the keyboard is easy to type on- making this tablet a lot more user friendly than other tablets in this price range. The Auxus AX02 is even equipped with a 2MP camera in the rear using which you can click crisp images, while a [+more]

Nikon Coolpix P510: The Perfect Successor to the P500

nikon

The Nikon Coolpix P510 is a great development to its successor with a 42X wide optical zoom, a 16.1 mega-pixel CMOS sensor as well as GPS capabilities that lets you geotag your images on the go. We all loved, and still do love, the Nikon Coolpix P500 for being one of the pioneers and long-standing leaders among the bridge camera series. For the longest time, it was one of the best cameras you could pick up if you were looking for something that could perform far better than an ordinary point-and-shoot, but be easier to handle and cheaper than a DSLR. I came across the concept of the bridge cameras when the Nikon L110 a couple of years ago, when I was looking to change my sturdy Canon camera, and wanted to invest in a camera which could do more for me than just sit tight in my purse. I [+more]
