Zync rolls out the Z990 Android tablet
Zync is not exactly a household name in the USA or Europe, but it is a popular manufacturer of personal electronics in India. At an event in Mumbai, the Noida-headquartered company apparently launched a new tablet, dubbed Z990 that runs an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. Reportedly, the device is now available to customers for purchase and sells for INR 8,990 (about $175).
This new slate will be driven by an unspecified 1.2GHz central processing unit; it will be equipped with a capacitive multitouch-enabled (5 points) TFT display that measures 7-inch in diagonal and has a maximum supported resolution of 800-by-480 pixels. In addition, the Z990 houses 1GB of internal memory and 4GB of onboard storage, which can be expanded up to 32GB by utilizing the built-in microSD card slot.
Other specs of Zync’s latest slate PC include a micro USB 2.0 port, an HDMI interface for hooking up the device to an HDTV, a 3.5 mm audio jack, a 3600mAh battery and support for Android Market (aka Google Play). Moreover, users are provided with Wireless LAN 802.11 a/b/g/n adapter and 3G connectivity (through an external dongle).
The Z990 model reportedly weighs 380g and comes with complimentary USB cable, earphones, sleeve pouch and screen guard.
