ASUS has launched a lot of entry-level Android-based tablets in India in the past couple of years, including the ZenPad 7.0 and the ZenPad 8.0 during the ZenFestival event. Now, the Taiwanese computer peripheral and smartphone brand has launched an affordable dual-SIM Android-based tablet in India. The ASUS ZenPad C 7.0, which has a price tag of Rs 7,999 and Rs 8,999 (depending on the variant), runs Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system, and comes with dual-SIM 3G connectivity.

  • Android 5.0 (Lollipop) with ASUS Zen UI
  • 7-inch IPS LCD display, 1024×600 pixels, AGC DragonTrail Glass protection, and Front Speaker with DTS HD Sound
  • 5-megapixel primary camera and VGA secondary (front-facing) camera

Going by the specifications, the variant of the ZenPad C 7.0, which comes with an Intel SoC, has a beefier ARM Mali-450MP4 GPU. Even though it is priced Rs 1,000 higher, I would advise people interested in this product to buy the variant that's available through Flipkart as it will provide a better gaming experience due to its GPU. Since Xiaomi's Mi Pad lacks any kind of cellular connectivity, consumers would be interested in this tablet's dual-SIM connectivity. What do you think about this tablet?
