G’Five will be launching an Android based tablet PC in India within a month. The tablet will be a 7 inch capacitive touchscreen device based on Android 2.1. The device is expected to run on VIA processors, with a rating of 600 MHz or more.
It is expected to be priced below Rs 15,000 as competitors such as Olive Telecom have got devices named Olive Pad with the latest version of Android currently selling at Rs 19,000. HCL too has entered the market with its own tablet HCL Me Tablets starting at Rs 14,900.
[advt]G’Five has opened 10 exclusive stores under the brand name of Mobispot. G’Five, which according to the IDC is the third largest handset player in India, is planning to launch 500 such stores across the country, including 20 in Delhi.
Jaideep Chopra, vice president, G’Five, says,
“We are ready with the product; we are just waiting for the right time to introduce the device. The pricing will be competitive with what is available in the market.”
About Mobispot, Chopra said,
“We will be launching 500 Mobispot stores across the country. We will focus not just on tier two and tier three but also metro cities with 20 stores in Delhi alone. These stores will sell only G’Five products including our lineup of mobile phones, tablets and laptops.”
