SWEEP OFF THE TABLE
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.
