HCL silently launches Me series of Android tablets in India [Update]
HCL has silently launched three Android tablets in India. Spotted this morning via a Facebook advert, these tablets are a part of its Me series. HCL is trying to target all the budget segments with these three tablets.
HCL Me AE7-A1: Most affordable of the lot, AE7-A1 features Android 2.2, a 7 inch resistive display and 800 MHz processor. HCL has priced at INR 14, 990. Other features of the tablet include 256MB RAM, 2GB storage and a front facing camera. You will be able to use internet on the tablet via WiFi and by connecting a USB EVDO dongle/data card.
HCL Me AM7-A1: Featuring the 3G connectivity, AM7-A1 will come with Android 2.2, 800 MHz processor and 7 inch capacitive display. HCL has priced it at INR 22,990. Other specs include 512 RAM, 8 GB Internal storage, and 1.3 MP front facing camera. Considering Samsung Galaxy Tab price has already fallen to 24K, I don’t see many buyers for this one.
HCL Me AP10-A1: This HD ready tablet will sport 10 inch capacitive display, Android 2.2, 1 GHz dual core processor, 1 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage. Company has priced AP10-A1 at INR 32,990. There is no word on Honeycomb update, but we expect that HCL pushes the update for at least AP10-A1, as it has specs to support that.
HCL has a vast network in India, and combined with marketing, I see HCL getting a decent number of sales. All the tablets are available on HCLStore.in and in HCL branded stores.
