HCL ME Tablet - AE7-A1  HCL ME Tablet - AM7-A1  HCL ME Tablet - AP10-A1

If you are an avid reader of The Indian Geek, then you’ll know by now what we think of Tablets for computing. HCL hasn’t announced anything officially yet, but three spanking-new Android-based tablets have been listed on their online store. The three tablets, which are a part of the “ME” series of HCL, were spotted by the folk over at AndroidOS blog on a Facebook Ad. All three are available to order right away from HCL’s online store, and the prices range from Rs. 14,990/- for the cheapest AE7-A1 (7 inch, resistive touchscreen) to Rs. 32,990/- for the AP10-A1 (high-end, 10 inch). Our first thoughts are that the highly priced AP10-A1 would have been a killer option at around Rs. 22,000 - Rs. 25,000/- The mid-range AM7-A1, priced at Rs. 22,990/- is not carrying specs to match even Samsung’s Galaxy Tab, which should be available for just a few more thousands (if you look hard enough). The low-end AE7-A1 has a resistive touchscreen – and you all know how much we simply hate those things. Yet, we realise that low-cost products do get sold quite easily in India, if marketed right. We’d also like to note that all three tablets seem to be sporting cameras of very low-resolutions – 0.3 MP on the AE7-A1, and 1.3 MP on the other two. We suspect that HCL left out mentioning that these are front-facing cameras; there could be higher-resolution rear cameras. We’re not sure, but it is quite likely – especially on the two higher-end models (we do not yet have high-resolution shots to confirm). We collected the available shots of the three tablets below – as usual, you may click them to view the full-size images in a new tab/window. You can also check out the full details on the HCL Store website, or lazily glance through a comparison table we put together – either way, you’ll have to click on that “Read More” button below.
