SWEEP OFF THE TA­BLE

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - REVIEWS -

Android tablets are flood­ing the mar­ket and the lat­est one to join the band­wagon is the Mi­la­grow Tabtop PC, an 8-inch tablet on Android v2.3. With the broad tex­tured bezel run­ning around the dis­play, this Tabtop PC does not have the looks to flaunt. The curved body at the back has a very plas­tic feel. Most of the con­trols are on the side panels. The left has vol­ume con­trols, back and op­tion key, while the right is clut­tered with on/off slider, HDMI, USB, mini USB port, mem­ory card slot, SIM card slot and a 3.5 mm jack.

Even with a 1.2 GHZ pro­ces­sor and 1 GB RAM, this tablet takes ages to boot. But once it pow­ers up, it man­ages most tasks with­out fur­ther de­lay. The cus­tomised skin of the Tabtop isn’t very im­pres­sive. With the home key placed on the left top, the ap­pli­ca­tion launcher is at the bot­tom right. Four short­cuts can be added to­wards the right edge that stays static on any home­screen. Along with reg­u­lar con­sumers, Mi­la­grow is try­ing to tar­get pro­fes­sion­als in­clud­ing in hos­pi­tals, schools, etc. for which plenty of apps have been pre­loaded on this de­vice. The bat­tery with a ca­pac­ity of 5000 mah didn’t last long. And at times, it failed to power up fully af­ter a night of charg­ing.
