NXG electronics started the low cost tab journey via the Xtab A10 and then they launched the Xtab A10 plus and now they are going a bit further with the 3G version of Xtab, priced at Rs. 12,490.

The Xtab Plus version and the latest 3G version are not so price friendly. NXG is currently offering a discount of Rs. 500 for advance booking. The Xtab 3G sports the same 7 inch screen with 5 point capacitive touch experience over an 800×480 pixels resolution.

The Xtab 3G does not come with Allwinner CPU, instead it houses the Samsung S5PV210 ARM Cortex-A8 Processor clocked at 1.2GHz with 512MB RAM (DDR2). The internal storage is 4GB. This tab is 13.5 mm thin and weighs around 390 grams with battery.

The Graphics processor used is SGX540 @ 307 MHz. This tab comes with built in 3G. You can use any SIM card on this Tab and enjoy 3G connection on the move. NXG website does not mention if the tab can be used as a phone, so I am not sure about the phone functionality. When compared with the Wammy plus this seems a better option as it comes with built in Bluetooth.

There is also a GPS which you can use with 3G and Google Maps. You get full access to Google play and the 3600 mAh li-ion battery gives a usage time of about 4 to 5 hours.
