India's Karbonn Launches $125 Jelly Bean Tablet

If you thought the recently released Nexus 7 was the cheapest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean tablet around, guess again. India's Karbonn Mobiles just announced there's a new kid on the block, the Smart Tab 1.

With a surprisingly budget-friendly price tag of 6990 Indian Rupees (approximately $125), the Smart Tab 1 may be the cheapest tablet in its class.

Featuring a 7-inch screen, the tablet runs on a 1.2GHz single core MIPS processor with up to 32GB of expandable storage.

The tablet also features a 2-megapixel front facing camera, 3G dongle support and seven to eight hours of battery life. Although the Smart Tab specs pale in comparison to Google's Nexus 7, the $125 price tag may be quite appealing for anybody on a tight budget.

For more information on the Smart Tab 1, head on over to the Karbonn Mobiles product page.

    Still, you'll be paying 75 bucks more and will be stuck with 8gigs of storage. If you are on a tight budget and need more than 8gigs, it's pretty good. And 1,2ghz single core ain't that bad.
