Trend of Tablets below Rs 5000 and Where to Buy them?



Today, we are seeing new trend in India for Tablet below Rs 5000. You can easily buy a Tablet with 1 GHz processor for as low as Rs 2500 only. Most of these Tablets are powered by android operating system and offer many advance features sometimes not offered by big names. Though, biggest issue is that we can not find any big brand in this category and these tablets are mostly available from local or small level companies. 

The two good options in this category are Micromax Funbook and Karbon Smart 2 Tablet. Both these tablets are available in market for Rs 6000 and they offer many good features like HD picture viewing, advance android version, better RAM etc. Other issues which I noted with all these tablets in very small internal memory of 4 GB only and (small) 7 inch screen size. With such a small internal memory, it is very difficult to enjoy these tablets fully. 

Some names of some these economical tablets selling around Rs 3000 are Zync Z-900 Tablet, Sylvania Ultraslim, Fujezone Tablet, Econnect Tablet etc. You can find many other tablets in this range with different names.  These tablets have become popular with children or people who want them for limited use or style. On one side, Tablets from big brands are available for more than Ra 15000 and on one side; these tablets are available for Rs 3000 only. 

At this cost, many people believe that there is no harm in buying such devices because it is really a very economical price. In my opinion, you can buy these devices if you are not planning to do very serious work with them. These tablets are good for children, students and fun time users. If you are looking for advance feature then these devices are not for you and you should buy a branded tablet.

Below I have added a list of online stores from where you can buy Less than Rs 5000 Tablets at Ease and Discount Rate

1)      Homeshop18.com (Click Computer --- then Click Tablets)
2)      Tradus.com
3)      Seventymm.com
4)      Futurebazaar.com

What is Cloud Space Storage/memory? How effective it is for Mobiles?



Cloud Space Storage means storing data on cloud. Cloud is a virtual storage platform hosted somewhere else. Generally, a cloud is created by connecting many small clouds (memory storage units). You can buy storage space on cloud space storage by buying it from number of companies offering cloud space storage. The storage space which you buy from cloud space storage companies is also termed as cloud space memory. Upon buying cloud space storage, you get a password to upload and access your data any time. Therefore, your data always remain safe and accessible to you only. A single cloud space is used by many people and companies; however, each individual can only access data linked with his account by using his login credentials.  Many people and companies use cloud space storage to store their data confidentially and in this way, they become free from storing data individually. In last few years, this concept has gained lots of popularity because it is much convenient, safe and economical to store data on cloud space storage.

The new concept is to use cloud space storage for mobile devices. Many mobile companies are offering free cloud space data storage accounts to mobile buyers. One of such mobile in market is Sony Xperia which is offering 50 GB free cloud space storage for life. Now biggest question is how effective is cloud space storage for mobile devices? Before using cloud space storage, we are required to know that we need active internet connection to upload and access data on cloud. Therefore, you need a fast and unlimited data plans to fully use cloud space memory. Under present conditions in India, the speed offered by most of 3g networks in average and data charges are very high. Under such conditions, cloud space storage does not look very effective for mobile devices in India. Though, we can hope that in near future with increase in mobile internet speed and decrease in its prices cloud space storage may become attractive option for mobile users.

All these online stores claim so many things; however, many times people got cheated due to such sites because of poor delivery of product. For example, I ordered a digital camera from an online store and it took one month and one week for site to deliver this product. Some sites have miserable and untrained customer care which makes it hard to get right information or to send a product back. Therefore, it is very important to buy electronic products from trusted sites only.

Which is better mobile operating software Android or Window and Why?



Today, Android is undoubtedly most popular and most used mobile operating system in world. At present, Android mobile operating system has direct competition with Window’s mobile operating system. So far, Window’s mobile operating system is much behind android in reach and popularity; however, it is increasing its presence with new launches. In next few days, Microsoft is going to launch Window 8 mobile operating system. Microsoft says that Window 8 mobile is much better than Window 7 mobile. In last few years, high end mobile market has grown very fast thus increasing demand for better mobile operating systems. Therefore, Microsoft has also realized need for a good mobile operating system to remain successful in operating system business. Microsoft is clear winner when it comes to computer based operating systems; however, in mobile operating systems Google is clear winners because it entered this market very early and at right time. Apple’s iOS mobile operating software does not looks to have direct competition with others because it is only restricted to Apple’s Iphone only and same is the story with Blackberry operating system. On the other hand, Nokia has already stopped development of its own mobile operating software Symbian. Therefore, there remain only two major players one is Google’s Android and other is Microsoft’s Window based mobile operating software. Now question comes in front of us is that which out of these two operating systems in best.

8)      Large base of application developers.
9)      More frequent release of New Android Versions.
10)  Cost of running Android is much less as compared to other operating system.
11)   Very easy to operate

Bad Points of Android-

1)      Too many unwanted apps
2)      Too many choices of versions
3)      Problem of less battery life with some versions
4)      So widely available that fails to give a unique look.

Good Points of Window Mobile 8

1)      Innovative design and new look.
2)      Better multi-tasking, resolution and battery life.
3)      Unique look and appeal
4)      Good base of apps
5)      Software upgrade support
6)      Multi processor support



Bad Points of Window Mobile 8



1)      Very expensive Apps
2)      Cost of running software is high
3)      Not easy for new users
4)      New product and needs to be tested
5)      Available only for higher end mobiles
6)      Lesser base of app developers
   

By considering all these points, you can yourself decide which software is good for you.

Which is Best option Internal Memory or External Memory of a device and Why ?

Memory is an important part of any electronic device today because it helps us to store unlimited things. We all know that more the memory of a device more freedom we enjoy in storing favorite items. However, many times we face this dilemma that we should buy a device with internal memory or a device with external (extended memory). For example, if you have option of buying two tablets, one with 64 GB internal memory and other with 64 GB memory card (extended Memory).

Now both devices have same memory and you can buy tablet with 64 GB memory card at much less price of tablet with internal memory of 64 GB. Today, many tablets with 4 GB internal memory and extended memory up to 64 GB are available in market for less than Rs 5000. On the other hand, tablets with internal memory of 64 GB cost more than Rs 15000. Now should you buy an electronic device with internal memory at higher price or why should not buy a device with extended memory at much less price?

I have used both kinds of devices and my verdict goes with devices with internal memory because benefits of such devices are much higher as compared to devices with extended memory. An internal memory of 64 GB compared to extended memory of 64 GB enjoys much a faster speed, more functions, less errors and long life. If, you are planning to use a device for long time then you must keep in mind that a memory card will not last for long and its speed will decrease with time.

Many applications, games and software work only on internal memory and many others work fast on internal memory. So if, you are paying more for device with high internal memory then you are definitely buying a peace of mind and great comfort for long time.
