    I’m really excited by this, to be honest. It’s nice to see a company finally get truly competitive with the iPad.

    Hi this is Ritika here. I just heard that the NXG electronics recently launched Xtab A10 which has 1.5 GHz processor,7″ 5point capacitive screen,
    HDMI and USB port with Android 4.0.
