Kobian Mercury MagiQ

Kobian announced the launch of its first dual SIM tablet phone – the Mercury magiQ today. The company calls it a tablet but it is also a phone. It would be more appropriate to refer to this device a “phablet”.

Coming to the specifications, this device is powered by a 1 GHz single core processor. When compared to other high players in the market, this processor is obviously underpowered. The device will run Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich and comes with a beautiful interface and many good features. Priced at Rs.12,700, this device is obviously in the midrange of the market right now.

The device features 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of internal storage. It is possible to expand storage up to 32 GB by using micro-SD. It supports two GSM SIMs. Of note is the 12 megapixel camera present on the rear side of the phone. It is quite good for taking pictures of amazing quality and also 1800 pixel high-definition videos. The front facing camera is good enough for making video calls. Officially, the device will provide 13 hours of talk time and stay in standby mode for 15 days. The device weighs about 140 g.


Other features include an accelerometer, GPS support, call history feature, phonebook, push mail and instant messaging, and a mini USB port. It also features a 3.5 MM audio jack.

Kobian Mercury MagiQ Price

Priced at Rs. 12,700, this phone is about Rs. 2500 more than the Micromax A100, which is the nearest competitor. The phone comes with a one-year warranty. If you want to purchase a tablet computer running Android and also want to use it as a mobile phone, this device is a very good option. Kobian, even though has made a very late entry into the mobile/tablet market, is a good hardware manufacturer. This device could be well above the money for the features it provides.
