After the success of Xtab A10, NXG Electronics has launched another tab called the Xtab A10 Plus, an upgraded version of A10 with improved features and a slightly higher price tag at Rs. 7,990.
The specifications are almost similar with some minor improvements. The Xtab A10 plus comes with Allwinner CPU (Cortex A8) clocked at 1.5 GHz, this is what many manufactures say but benchmarking apps will show 1 GHz speed. What they mean by 1.5 GHz is the cumulative speed from CPU + GPU (Mali 400) + APU + VPU.
This tab runs on Android 4.0.3, comes with 8 GB internal storage and 1 GB DDR3 RAM. The screen size is 7 inches capacitive touch with improved resolution of 1024 x 600. The A10 Plus is 8.5 mm thin and weighs 480 grams.
This model does not come with built in 3G but just like the NXG A10, it supports external 3G (EVDO / WCDMA) dongles. Other features are Gyro Sensor, Wi-Fi, built-in mic and speakers, USB 2.0, microSD, mini HDMI port and 3.5 mm jack. The pre-installed media player supports MOV, DivX, DAT, MP4, MP3, WAV, MP2 and many other formats. There is one more surprise; the A10 Plus comes with dual cameras. A front 0.3 MP and a rear 2 MP camera without flash.

NXG claims that the A10 Plus battery can play videos for almost 8 hours on a single charge. The recent sold A10 lot has a lot of battery related issues and it came to the notice that the battery mAh inside was different from what they mentioned on the site (NXG has now corrected the mAh value on their site).
The New Xtab A10 plus looks good, performance wise it will be better than the A10 credit goes to the 1 GB memory that it houses. The apps and games that worked on the A10 will also work on the plus version; in fact will look much better because of the higher screen resolution which no doubt is the plus point. If you love reading books it will be a pleasurable experience on the Xtab A10 plus.
