Gainward Galapad tablet goes on sale in Europe

Written by Peter Scott

€179 for a quad core 7-incher

Gainward has been a loyal Nvidia partner for year and it is now taking the relationship to a new level. No, it is not moving into Nvidia’s HQ, but it is entering the tablet market with an affordable Tegra tablet.

The Gainward Galapad 7 is a low cost 7-inch tablet powered by Nvidia’s Tegra 3 clocked at 1.3GHz. The screen resolution is 1024x600, which is still the norm in the 7-inch world, but it’s a notch under the Nexus 7. At least it is an IPS screen, which is not always the case in this price range.

The Galapad 7 has 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage and a microSD slot. A micro-HDMI output is also on board, along with USB 2.0, GPS and Bluetooth 3.0. It has a 3500mAh Li-polymer battery, which makes in relatively light. It weighs 330g and measures 196x122x9.9mm.

Gainward’s first tablet is already on sale in Europe and prices start at €179. It is a bit pricier than the Asus MeMo Pad ME172V, Acer’s Iconia Tab B1 and Lenovo’s Ideatab A2017A, but then again it is based on a much faster chip. It is also significantly cheaper than the Nexus 7, which usually sells for €230+ in Europe. All in all it sounds like a fair deal for a speedy Jelly Bean tablet.
