Vivitair had launched a budget tablet last year aimed largely at the students and is designed to help in their educational pursuit. That was an Android based tablet that was sturdy in design to cater for the not too careful handling of the device by its users, given their age group. It also had a very intuitive and easy user interface. Access to Google Play and support for third party developed Android Apps made it a total package that students could use not just for educational but recreational use as well. The tablet had been priced so that it was affordable for the students or for their parents to buy one for their child, with the theme of One Laptop Per Child being the scheme by Vivitar. The company has now started to come in with two more such variants, of 7 and 10 inch sizes. The XO tablet would carry a price tag of $150 and $200 for the 7 inch and 10 inch sizes respectively.
So far as individual specs of the devices go, both the 7 inch and 10 inch versions would have a display of 1024 x 600 pixels as well as quad core processors to power them. The RAM and storage capacity would also be the same in both cases that is 8 GB of storage and 1 GB of RAM. They would also have the same camera of 2 MP front facing and 5 MP rear facing. The difference in the 7 inch and 10 inch tablet would be in the battery backup where the 7 inch would run 7 hours while the 10 inch would run for 12 hours. The 10 inch tablet would also have GPS facility in it.
Other additional features which would be of special interest to students are the wireless keyboard that comes as optional with the tablets. There is also the option of picking up a digital microscope that is compatible with the tablet and gives a magnification factor of 300x. A 200x digital telescope is also available. With these accessories and the tablet, student can take on astronomy and biology projects easily.
