Before CES started there was somewhat of an avalanche of affordable tablets with Android, most of them coming from China and packing Ice Cream Sandwich as the OS. This time we stumbled upon another model, but one that runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread and is priced a bit below $250. Meet the Kobian mTab 2.

Kobian’s new slate uses the Mercury branding and it sports a 7 inch WVGA capacitive touch display, a 1gHZ dual core Cortex A9 CPU, 3D accelerator and 8GB of storage. There’s also a USB 2.0 port on board, so you can easily connect a mouse, keyboard or pen drives to this slate. Videochat is also supported via a VGA front camera and there’s a HDMI port on board allowing users to connect to a larger display, if needed. WiFi is the connectivity of choice and this model has 2 year of warranty.

These specs are not bad at all, but I have to see the build quality before giving a final verdict. This device is currently available in India.
