Indian brand iBall is looking forward to compete with Lenovo by launching its Slide Brace X1 tablet in India at a price of Rs 17,999 soon. The iBall Slide Brace X1 boasts of a ‘flexible kickstand’ which is similar to what Lenovo has included in its recently launched Yoga Tablet 2.
The flexible stand allow users to comfortably hold the tablet and can be used to make it stand and tilt. However, according to press images, it seems iBall has forgotten to punch a hole onto the extension to also offer ‘hang mode’ which the Yoga Tablet 2 does.
The iBall Slide Brace X1 runs on a 1.7GHz octa-core processor with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal memory which can be expanded up to 32GB. It sports a 10.1-inch 720p HD IPS display along with a 13MP A/F rear camera and a 5MP front camera. Running on Android 4.4 KitKat operating system, the device offers dual SIM card slots with support for 3G connectivity. Other connectivity options include USB tethering, USB Internet, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and USB OTG.
It is powered by a 7800 mAh battery supports multi languages read and write through in-built multi-language keyboard. The iBall Slide Brace-X1 is expected to be available at all leading stores and retail outlets across India in coming weeks.
