After introducing a sub 10,000 tablet, Beetel has added a new feather in its tab-cap. With the launch of an upgraded tab, the Magiq Glide, the company is trying to compete against the likes of the Reliance Tab.
Where the new 7-incher looks exactly like its predecessor is the user interface. Running on Android 2.2, the custom UI has application tabs at the bottom—home, web, entertainment, communication and favourite. There are some shortcuts on the top right with
the last icon for task manager and notifications. The kick stand at the back makes it easy to type or watch videos.
The biggest drawback of the Magiq was its resistive touch display. Rectifying past mistakes, Beetel has given the Glide a capacitive screen which makes scrolling through the main menu and even typing simpler and smoother.
The Beetel Magiq Glide has a 1GHZ processor with 512 MB RAM. The overall performance was decent, but the 2MP camera and battery were average.
