GLIDE IN

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - REVIEWS -

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.
