SMART SQ718 3G tablet India price confirmed at launch


If you’re in the market for an affordable tablet with voice calling capabilities we have news today of a new arrival. The SMART SQ718 3G tablet India price has been confirmed at its launch, although it joins a crowded market for this kind of device.

We’ll kick off with details of the SMART SQ718 specifications before we get down to pricing. The tablet is powered by a 1.3GHz MediaTek MT8383 quad-core processor, and has a 7-inch multi-touch display with resolution of 1024 x 600. There’s 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage with microSD card expansion up to 32GB.

More specs of this Creative Peripherals tablet include a 5-megapixel rear camera and up front there’s a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter. It offers dual SIM support as well as 3G (including voice calling), WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS, and USB OTG. Juice is supplied with a 3000 mAh battery, and the device also includes FM radio and a 3.5mm audio jack.

The SMART SQ718 tablet runs the rather dated Android 4.4 KitKat operating system. It’s black in color and the price is Rs. 8,999. Creative Peripherals CEO Ketan C Patel said of the launch,

“We are very excited at the launch of Smart — tablets. We are launching ‘Smart’ to address the young generation, who are our largest constituent of digital age today. We are very confident that Smart will impress everyone with its superior quality and innovation. The success of any launch in digital space today lies with a robust and strong reach across all markets in India. Creative Peripherals has been chosen to take Smart across all key 15 tier 1 and 2 markets across India. The growing aspirational class of young India will find the product within their reach — geographically as well as economically!”

    Mixed thoughts!

    I’m looking for a 6.5″ – 7″ screen tab-pho: I want to run Ubuntu on one! So it’s nice to see the form factor coming back after a year or so hiatus.

    It would’ve been nice to have (at least) twice the RAM and rather more memory (at least 32GB). Intel,
    rather than MediaTek chips would be preferable too, for better driver support.

    There’s the Shift7 offering the same kind of specs, but with ethical build too: £162
