COMMENT: Mercury might not be biggest name in the tablet segment but are set to make a statement with their new 7 inches mTAB Star tablet.

NIGERIA – As the competition within the tablet segment continues to rage, SamsungTecno and the big guns manufacturers are lining up new and improved models of their existing stock. Not only are they, in most cases, manufacturing less expensive devices, but others like Kobian, are also loading on the features and trying their hardest to maintain a competitive price structure. Kobian launched their first Mercury Tablet the mTab, back in the tail quarter of 2011. It proved to be just above average, however, in the budget tablet division, while keeping the price under N30, 000 ($185.29). Their latest announcement is of the upgraded version of the same device only now infused with 3G capabilities and dual SIM support.

The Mercury mTab Star M831G features a 7-inch display with a resolution of 1024×600 pixels. The device is powered by a 1GHz dual core Cortex A9 processor and is based on the MediaTek chipset. It comes with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 32GB with the help of a microSD card. It runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. The tablet is encased in a metal body and weighs 400grams.

The tablet comes with Dual SIM card support complete with voice & video calling functionality. The tablet is far from being the ideal device for explorers and vacationist as it can only boast of a 2.0-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a VGA front-facing camera. Connectivity options on the tablet include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Micro-USB, HDMI and 3G. While also supporting tethering & hotspot. Other features include a 3.5mm audio jack, built-in speakers, Flash 11 support and SGX531 3D graphics engine. The tablet includes a 3000mAh battery.

The device will be sold out for around N21, 995 – N25, 000 in most retail stores and less than N21, 000 in online stores such as Jumia.
