Bangalore start-up launches tablet

A Bangalore-based tech start-up, EAFT Technologies, has launched a tablet device, Magic Tile Marathon. It runs on the Android 2.2 operating system and is 3G enabled.

Among its key features are built-in 3G and GPS, high-definition video playback, standard USB ports and HDMI port, which can connect to any standard display. It has a 10.1-inch Multi-Touch Capacitive Display and has built-in flash support making it versatile, according to a press release from the firm.

However, priced at Rs. 29,900, it is already more expensive that the other Indian tablet, Olive Pad, launched last year by Olive Telecom, a company now headquartered in Bangalore.

The firm has tied up with a content aggregator for Bollywood and regional entertainment content, and with publication houses for education content.

Commenting on the launch, Chief Executive Officer of EAFT Jitendhar G.S. said, “The tablet offered by EAFT has various flavours that today's youth is keen on experiencing… The whole concept aims at delivering the right product at the right time to the right target audience.”

With nearly 200 new and enhanced capabilities, the product will continue to set the standard in virtualisation, delivering better application performance and availability for all business-critical applications while automating the management of an increasingly broad pool of data centre resources.

“The market has fully embraced virtualisation as a key transformative technology at the heart of the next era of computing,” Mr. Maritz said.
