Zen Ultratab A900
Price: Rs 7,999

Specs: Android 4.0; 9-inch tablet; 1.5 Ghz processor; 512MB RAM; 32GB expandable memory; WiFi, 3G Dongle support; 512 gm.

After 7- and 10-inch tablets, Zen Mobile has opened a new category with a 9-inch display. The rectangular design and weight of the UltraTab A900 is far from impressive. In contrast to the stylish black bezel, the white plastic used for side panels and the back makes the tablet look very average. The power key and volume controls have been placed on the top with the rest of the ports on the right panel suggesting the tablet is to be used in the landscape mode. The ports on the right panel include mini HDMI port, 3.5mm jack, memory card microUSB port and the proprietary charging port.

The Android Ice-Cream Sandwich interface looks similar to other tablets in the market. Along with the regular apps, there are plenty of pre-loaded apps too. The 1.5 GHz processor with 512 MB RAM managed to perform most of the tasks with ease. We did not notice any lag while watching movies, browsing the web or even playing games. The tablet also has a 1.3MP front-facing camera. The device has a 4000 mAh battery onboard that lasted close to a day on average use.

Bag it or junk it? Good value for money.
