A new company called Winknet, has now launched the Winknet Wonder and Winknet Ultimate ICS based tablets. The Wonder is with 7 inch screen for a price of Rs. 7,995 and the Ultimate comes with 9.7 inch with a price tag of Rs. 14,995.
Winknet Wonder TWY100
This is a 7 inch tablet with 800×480 pixels resolution powered by AllWinner A10 CPU which Winknet claims can be clocked at up to 1.5 GHz. Allwinner A10 is not new, and we have seem many tabs powered by this chipset, and now manufactures are shifting towards Allwinner A13 chipset. Also all of the Allwinner A10 based tabs are clocked at 1.0 GHz and not 1.5GHz. This tab also houses the Mali 400 GPU.
Memory is 512MB (RAM), plus there is 8GB internal storage, HDMI port, external 3G dongle supported and Wi-Fi. This tab can play HD videos comfortably without lags.

Tablets with same hardware specs are available for a much lower cost at around Rs. 5,000 to Rs. 7,000. I wonder why the Winknet Wonder cost is so high?
Winknet Ultimate TWY300
The Ultimate is another model with a 9.7 inch IPS capacitive touchscreen display with resolution 1024×768 pixels. It has 2 cameras, a front VGA and a rear 2MP. Internal storage is 16GB with 1GB RAM and running on Android 4.0 (ICS) OS.

Again the Ultimate seems too pricy; there is the Micromax Funbook Pro that easily competes with this tab. The Winknet Ultimate does have some good unique features (Bluetooth, 16GB internal memory) but the price is still too high. Check out the official Winknet website.
