A new tablet called the Milagrow TabTop PC will soon enter the Indian markets. The company Milagrow claims that this product could be seen as replacement for laptops, desktops and even other tablets available in the market. The TabTop PC comes with a powerful processor and features that are hard to find on other tablets.
It is a known fact that desktops and laptops are powerful but desktops are not portable and laptops though portable are somewhat bulky. On the other hand tablets are light weight and easy to carry but lack a lot of features and have limited usage. The Milagrow TabTop PC was designed to make the tablet more powerful and bring features that were only available on the laptops and desktops.
Milagrow TabTop PC Features
This is probably the world’s first tablet to come with all in one ports that include SD card, Full USB, HDMI and USB host. With Full USB you can connect any type of storage devices apart from the microSD card slot that can hold up to 32 GB memory card. This tablet PC weighs 455 grams and is of dimension 166 x 205 x 13.5 mm.
This TabTop PC is powered by 1.2 GHz processor from Rockchip (RK2918) that comes with NEON SIMD engine which enhances media processing capabilities. Overall this processor delivers high performance with low power usage. Full HD at 1080p and video codec are decoded entirely in the hardware. Multitasking is supported and required which will help users to run multiple application and also switch between them as and when required, with ease.
The Milagrow TabTop PC also comes with 1 GB DDR3 RAM for max transfer rate of up to 6400 MB/s. The DDR3 RAM’s are much faster and consume less power as compared with DDR2 RAM.
This Tablet comes loaded with Android 2.3.1 (Gingerbread). This OS supports voice over IP, flash player 10.2 & above and a new user interface. Double tapping on the home key will allow users to browse through and switch between applications; this is something you will not find on many tablets.
Most of the low cost tablets in India do not support built in 3G / 2G module. But TabTop PC comes with Quad Band Huawei HSPA PC embedded module that supports HSPA, GSM, UMTS, EDGE and GPRS. In simple terms you can use this tablet as phone (Worldwide use) and also make use of 3G networks for faster browsing. This tablet can act as a Wi-Fi hotspot allowing up to 8 Wi-Fi enabled devices to share internet connection simultaneously.
The Milagrow TabTop Sports an 8 inch multi touch LED backlit capacitive (4:3) screen with 4 way rotation and supporting resolution of 1024 by 768 pixels. The LCD screen is A+ grade with LED backlit.
There are basically 2 cameras the front facing camera is of VGA resolution whereas the back camera is of 2 Megapixel resolution though not the best in the class. The camera comes with many features such as auto focus, GEO tagging, colour effects and resolution choice.
This tablet can play MP3, WMA, AAC, OGG, FLAC, APE and WAV audio files. The video files supported are AVI, 3GP, MOV, FLY, RM, RMVB, MKV, WebM VP8, WMA and MP4.
Other features are Bluetooth 2.1, 3.5mm headphone jack, Live TV, HD games supported, gyro sensors, Wi-Fi, 3G, GPRS, EDGE and Google stuffs that you find on android OS.
This TabTop comes with 5000 mAh Lithium polymer battery that gives a playtime of more than 10 hours, talktime of 40 hours on 2G / 20 hours on 3G, standby time of 350 hours on 3G / 500 hours when using Wi-Fi and about 8 hours of internet browsing using 3G / Wi-Fi.
Milagrow TabTop PC price in India
This tablet comes in two versions 16 GB and 32 GB. The 16 GB TabTop is priced at Rs. 24,600 and the 32 GB TabTop is for Rs. 28,500.
The box pack contains: TabTop, Charger, Leather case, USB cable, earphone, warranty card and user manual.
Verdict: Even though the company claims this TabTop PC is a replacement for the desktop and the laptops, for some maybe, but not for me there are some power applications that I use and am not sure if the tablet will support it.
The cost is too high and for that price you can get a really faster desktop or a decent laptop. There is no keyboard but by using the USB port you can connect one. The USB port gives you an option to connect many devices but then you will need to invest on those. For example to get GPS on the TabTop (which is not available) you will need to buy a GPS (USB / Bluetooth) device.
The Milagrow TabTop PC cannot replace the desktop or laptop but as a tablet is has some really good features and can give some tough competition to other tablets.
