FOR PRICE WATC CHERS
Into the already cluttered seven-inch Android tablet market, Simmtronics has launched its XPad X720.
The tablet has a black bezel and a white textured rear. Like most of th other companies in the budget dev space, this one too does not have a branding on the front. The branding at the back, however, indicates tha the device is best used in portrait mode. But with the power key on th bottom panel, one is forced to use the tablet in the landscape mode.

At first, we felt that the touch on the capacitive display wasn’t smooth and the display not that bright. But then we should not crib much as this is a sub
5,000 tablet. With connectivity options restricted to Wi-Fi, browsing on the onboard browser was about average. We could play non-HD videos on this tablet. For all these basic chores, the tablet packs a 1GHz processor paired with a 512MB RAM.
Thanks to the Android IceCream Sandwich operating system there is a dedicated multi-tasking key at the bottom using which we could use to switch or close apps. One big drag is the fact that this device does not have a rear camera and you will have to do with just the 0.3MP front camera. Browsing the web and watching videos over Wi-Fi, the 2800 mAh battery lasted close to four hours.
