Karbonn Smart Tab 1 gets Jelly Bean update

Karbonn Smart Tab 1 which is already available in the market will not come loaded with the Jelly Bean Android 4.1 OS instead of the ICS (Android 4.0). What’s more Karbonn Mobiles have not changed the price and it is still available for Rs. 6,999.

Here is some good news for consumers who had already bought or booked the Karbonn Smart Tab 1, well they too can upgrade to Android Jelly Bean for free. Karbonn will soon roll out the update for which users might need to download files and follow installation procedure.

This tab runs on 1.2 GHz powered processor, now with Android 4.1. The capacitive touchscreen is 17.8cm or 7 inches with resolution 800×480 pixels. Memory I think is 512MB RAM with 4GB internal storage. The MIPS-Based JZ4770 is SoC used so we presume it works comfortably well with 4.1.

The camera is of better resolution at 2 megapixels. The 3700mAh battery is powerful enough to last for about 6+ hours of usage. Other features are Wi-Fi, USB port, 3D sensors for gaming, 3.5mm jack and external 3G support.

Karbonn Smart Tab 1 with Jelly Bean OS

The Karbonn Smart Tab 1 did not get the response that Micromax Funbook got, especially because it came in late and was also priced a bit higher than other brands. Moreover full hardware specifications are not known. But with an upgradation to 4.1 they could probably attract many new consumers.

What’s more with Karbonn going live with Jelly Bean we might see other tablet manufacturers following the same path. With Smart Tab 1, Jelly Bean journey has begun; in coming days / weeks or months, we could see many more Karbonn smartphones / Smart Tab 4 all powered by Android 4.1.

    Hi gogi,

    I am confused about difference between android phones. The same factor in karbon and samsung and other leading companies. So, what is the difference between leading companies and such as karbon, micromax companies. Await your reply.
    Thank You!.

      Prakash, I really find no difference between big and small brands with the same hardware conf, there could be slight quality change in terms of built and display screen, memory etc. There are some proprietor hardware's that big brands use, you will not find those on lower brands. But in general if you see the latest trend now its a bit outdated technology i.e 1GHz, dual core etc.. If you look at big brands its quad-core and so on. We will find Karbonn and other brands coming with quad-core once big brands come with something new and quad-core gets outdated.

    hi gogi, smart tab vs funpro 10 inch, which one would you Recommend? mainly for browsing web, watching youtube, email and online radio. No need for gaming only casual sometimes. Thanks Faz

      Fazal, smart tab is 7 inch and funbook is 10 inches. Funbook is better cause of bigger screen and 1024×600 resolution.

    It would be nice if karbonn or micromax provide tabs like nxg a10 plus with jellybean. But for sure it will start a competition to provide latest android version and also updates to older tab which micromax lacks.
