The Good: PTCL’s new Evo Tab gives the exclusive freedom of 3G internet service roaming across more than 250 cities of Pakistan. It is also not that expensive with special three month discount package from PTCL.
The Bad: The RAM of 512 seems insufficient as most of modern world apps require a bit more Random Access Memory and the OS is not the latest-Android Jelly Bean. Also in the world of extra high resolutions, WSVGA display does not seem enough.
Upshot: With some compromises, the re-invented Evo Tab is worth its cost with its ability to automatically connect with 3G service countrywide.
The News: Pakistan Telecommunication Limited (PTCL) has re-invented its Evo Tab Packages and prices after its first launch back in 2011. PTCL has reviewed and enhanced Evo Tab’s features with augmented clock speed of 1.2 GHz Dual Core Snapdragon processor and running Android 4.0.1 Ice Cream Sandwich soul. It has 512 MB RAM and touch is somewhat improved with 7” High definition multi gestures IPS LCD as compared to previous one.
