Beetel has launched the Magiq tab on 17th August 2011. It started selling the tab at retail outlets for a price of Rs. 9999. The key features and the specifications of this tab are given below.

Key features :

    • Processor Speed - 1GHz (Qualcomm Snapdragon)
    • Android 2.2 (Upgradable to 2.3)
    • 7.0" WVGA Screen (Resistive touch screen with stylus)

It does not have HDMI port as the Beetel website shows nor is it a capacitive touch screen device as the Beetel customer care claims. But it does come with a 2 month free 3G data usage of 2GB each month on the first Airtel sim inserted. This offer is valid till 20th Nov 2011.

Here is my video of the on hands review of Beetel Magiq Android 3G Tablet.

  9. 1. I am yet to insert a sim. I have one now and waiting for activation. The other battery statistics are updated in youtube comments of my video.
    2. It is not a capacitive screen so no multitouch.
    3. Beetel is supposed to upgrade it to 2.3.
    4. You can't buy it online but can search for your nearest dealer (I provided the link in earlier post)
    5. You can ask your questions here, I can answer them and it would be helpful to others.
    6. 1 Year warranty is what I remember the retailer told me, but I cannot see anything in the box that talks about the warranty.
    7. It can support flash (android 2.2 has the support) and I could install adobe flash 10.3 also.

  13. does beetel magic has inbuilt quickoffice application?? Does it has inbuilt gps??does beetel magic has inbuilt quickoffice application?? Does it has inbuilt gps??

    ReplyDelete
  14. @Sam It has both GPS and office applications.

    @nkatkamwar I will try to check the website you suggested and update the results. And regarding the battery, I am not satisfied with it. Probably it needs a bigger battery. I have to and want to check if its available in the market. Do let me know if you have any details about this.

    @Vishwanath I would rate it 7-8. The only thing that disappointed me till now is the battery(not even the resistive touch screen).

  15. OUT OF STOCK..!!! ALL OVER BANGALORE..

    PLEASE GUIDE ME WHERE I CAN BUY IT IN BANGALORE

  16. thanks for the detailed review, wanted to know if it runs adobe e book reader and what is the standard rate is it selling on box price because in hyd they were offering it for 9200 also, though as of today stocks had run out in several shops. has anybody purchased it cheaper than 9200. Also kindly tell me if mercury mtab is available in any city in india, if so whether on box rate or at a lesser price. It would be nice if somebody did a review on mercury mtab too, the specs it has are pretty good and it is cheaper than beetel. Also adam notionink seems to be a good option at a little extra cost,but is only available abroad, though it is a bangalore based coy. Has anybody managed to purchase it in india and which place is it available at.
