Simmtronics Launched XPad Tablet in UAE – World’s Most Affordable Tablet Series

Simmtronics may not be a household name just yet but it took several steps in that direction on Wednesday in Dubai with the launch of its XPad series of Android tablets.
Claiming that the tablet’s were the ‘world’s most affordable’, it is targeting consumers who are looking for a budget tablet without compromising on its quality or features. The tablets that Simmtronics offers are all made in India, and are already selling extremely well in the Asia Pacific region.
XPad Tablet
The company admits that calling the series of tablets the ‘XPad’ was a conscious marketing decision to opt for a short and easy to recall name reminiscent of the iPad rather than other options such as the SimPad or Simmtronics Pad.
XPad Series Specifications
In the XPad series are a total of 5 different tablets that measure up at 7 inches, 8 inches, 9 inches, 9.7 inches and 10 inches. All of them run on a Cortex Arm8 1GHz processor and feature Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich as their operating system.
On the storage front they have 4GB of internal Nand Flash memory, and also provide MicroSD card support that allows for an additional 32GB.
With both a USB and HDMI port, the XPad series offers users a lot of options and flexibility when it comes to connecting their devices to other peripherals. It is fully WiFi capable, and also has support for 3G connectivity. The only feature missing is support for GPS.
While fulfilling its promise to deliver maximum connectivity for mobile users, the XPad has the capability to handle 1080p HD video seamlessly, render 2D and 3D graphics without issues, and perform well above its price range.  Right now the cheapest model in the XPad series is the 7 inch edition that was launched at a price of Dh 299 ($81.40).
Despite the fact that the launch of the Nexus 7 tablet is set to alter the 7 inch tablet market, the fact that a Nexus 7 will be selling at over double the price of a 7 inch XPad is a good sign that the XPad will remain competitive.
Reception and Future Plans
So far Simmtronic’s foray into the tablet market has been very successful. The manufacturer of motherboards, memory, notebooks and tablets has often made the news for its budget tablets and claims to be able to customize tablets for as low as $40.
At the launch of the XPad in the UAE, Simmtronics also revealed that they will be manufacturing another tablet tailored specifically to the needs of Middle Eastern students. No further details were forthcoming, but it stands to reason that it would be even cheaper than the  7 inch version of the XPad.
Due to the sheer amount of orders that Simmtronics has been receiving for its tablets, they face the need of having to expand their manufacturing facilities. Already the factory in India is capable of churning out approximately 300,000 units per month, and they are hoping to double that soon.
On the heels of the XPad series, Simmtronics already plan a number of other low budget but high quality tablets, and are already looking to compete with Samsung’s Galaxy Tab.
