Now let us find out what Le Pan has to offer to the Indian consumers and whether or not its low cost 4.0 Android Ice Cream Sandwich tablet has the power to attract people. We have heard of several companies producing their devices while incorporating this latest operating system from Google’s Android. However, Le Pan seems to be the first company to provide this latest version of operating system in India. Therefore, we can at least expect the company to gain good amount of attention from avid users in the nation. This will also make LePan one of the top competitors in the tablet market.
Design and Display :
The Le Pan 3 has received a good design and does not look quite cheap like its price. The design reminds up a little bit about the tablet that Sony has launched lately. However, we cannot compare them in terms of design as Le Pan has carved this device pretty well where curviness can be found at the rear body if seen from side. The device is completely touch screen and at the top sports a front view camera that is placed right at the middle. The display gets broad border from every sides, making the tablet look impressive. The left and right sides of this device gets metallic finish which enhances the overall appearance of the device.
To make the Le Pan 3 more attractive, complete metal finished body has been attached at the rear with the logo carved at the rear mid of the device. What is more interesting about this device is its 10 inches of display. The thickness of this device measures 0.48 inches. Still, we are not yet confirmed about the exact size of the screen, but the evaluations and rumors say so. Also, resolution and other features are kept undercover as of now by the company. The Le Pan 3 measures 7.44 inches in height, 9.29 inches in width and 0.48 inches in thickness.
The Le Pan 3 comes loaded with TI OMAP 4460 Dual-Core processor that runs quickly with a clock speed of 1.5 GHz. Certainly, we can say that this device can be a good competitor of many high-end tablets in the market. With such powerful performance, the tablet would not only run various apps in it, but would also serve various businesses.
The manufacturer has made justice to its tablet and with the users by incorporating a memory storage capacity of 1 GB (RAM) to Le Pan 3. This makes sure that consumers would never run out of memory space when they want to run their favorite apps in this device. In fact, the internal memory space is also pretty fine with 8 GB which can be expanded with a MicroSD card that gets fitted right at the card slot provided by the manufacturer to its device. The external memory can go up to 32 GB.
The Le Pan 3 comes with good range of connectivity options such as Wi-Fi enabled, Bluetooth and GPS module. The device also supports 1080P output, USB OTG and Ethernet through adapters.
The tablet sports its two different cameras – one at the front and the other at the rear. The primary camera is of 5 megapixels, giving great satisfaction to the users. However, there would be no flash to make your picture clear, especially during night. Besides, a secondary front facing camera with 2 megapixels has been provided by Le Pan for users who can make video calls.
No word has been out about this all new low cost Le Pan 3 tablet. However, the company wants its device to be launched as per India-centric. As of now, we have to wait until the company comes up and releases the features of this device along with its price.
Apart from what the company has introduced in the market, it has been found that Le Pan is planning its another model which would be a bit lower in terms of specs and features than this Le Pan III. It is named as TC978 which was showcased as amongst the one in its new launches. There are total three tablets that have been introduced by Le Pan for the general public. So, the company has become a trend setter to launch a low cost Ice Cream Sandwich based tablet in the Indian tablet market.
The TC978 would also share 10 inches of display just like Le Pan III and would also feature its 1 GHz processor. So, there are two models that are on the list to give tough competition to the low cost tablets in the Indian market. At this moment, the company has received a lot of tablet PC enthusiasts who are waiting for the launch of this device, especially because of the latest Android OS integration. The company has introduced three of its mid-range tablets – Le Pan II, TC978 and Le Pan III. The company is still not releasing any information about its pricing, perhaps it is planning to give a shock to the competitors.
