On the launch of these products, Ashish Garg, Director, Zync Global, said, “Zync has been working on these products for some time and we are very excited at the launch. Our Quad 8.0 would be the first ever 8 inch tablet in India and the Quad 9.7 would be the only tablet with an LED-backlit Super HD IPS Display which the company has launched at such exciting price points. Our new offerings cater to the tech-savvy generation who want to possess the latest gadget with all the latest features bundled into one. Zync has been dedicatedly worked on bringing value for money products for its users and we are sure with the quad core tablets, these offerings are going to create a rage amongst the younger audiences.”

These aren’t the first Jelly Bean powered tablet that we have seen launch in the Indian market, but for the price you pay, the specifications of the Quad 9.7 seem impressive, especially those of the display. However, we would like to put the tablets through their paces before commenting on the performance.

If you are in the market to pick up a budget tablet, you are really spoilt for choice. In the past few weeks we have seen the launch of quite a few devices such as the iberry Auxus Core X2 3G, Acer Iconia B1, Swipe Halo Value, Penta T-Pad WS708C, Asus MeMO Pad ME172V, Micromax Funbook P600, EAFT Destiny D90T, Samsung Galaxy Tab 311, WickedLeak Wammy Magnus, Lava E-Tab Xtron and many more.
