Celkon’s CT 888 7-Inch Tablet Costs Rs.7999, Runs Android 4.0 ICS

It is raining Android tablets these days. Just as I complete writing a piece about the not too spectacular launch of the Asus Fonepad, I have news about yet another tablet launch. This time, the manufacturer in question is not a globally well-known MNC – but has of late been able to create a buzz in the market. We are talking about Celkon and the company’s newest 7 inch tablet model, the CT 888.

CELLKON

The CT 888 looks like just another affordable 7 inch tablet – and the specs aren’t extravagant either. The display sports a resolution of 1024*600 pixels, supports multitouch and is capacitive in nature. Under the hood is a 1.2 Ghz dual core chip that at least on paper “sounds” better than the single core 1.2 Ghz chip you would find on the Asus FonePad that was launched in India earlier today.  Oh and lest we forget, there is 512 MB of RAM. Enough – but then we’d have loved 1 GB.

On the software front, this one runs Android 4.0 ICS – and there is no word whether the tab would be updated to JellyBean. Moving on to the camera, this one sports two of em – the primary camera being a 2 megapixel snapper. The front camera is a VGA affair. There is 4GB of internal memory that you can expand further using micro SD cards. Connectivity wise, this one is decently covered with support for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and of course – USB. Under the hood rests a battery rated at 3500 MAh.

The Celkon CT 888 is up for sale on Snapdeal for a price of Rs. 7999. The tablet is also available on installments with the option to pay in 6 monthly or 3 monthly options.

So, do you fancy getting one of these for yourselves?
