    There is a new player in the tablet market : Tesla. Its developed by Serbian company Comtrade, and, naturally, it bears the name of the greatest Serbian scientist, Nikola Tesla. This tablet is based on Intel's new CloverTrail+ technology.


    Tablet comes in a sleek black box, and the contest of the box - besides the tablet itself, includes warranty, manual, charger with detachable USB cable, and also, an USB OTG cable which enables you to connect various USB devices such are memory sticks or 3G modems. Tablets is only 7.2 mm thin, which makes it a joy for holding for a long periods of time.


    Tablet itself has a black finish, which looks very elegant, and side panels are made of shiny material, which in total makes it a very classy device. On the left side we can find 3.5mm headphone audio jack and micro-USB connector, while on top are the volume and power keys.


    As mentioned, Tesla tablet uses Intel's CloverTrail+ technology, which makes loading webpages, watching video or playing games very enjoyable, primarily thanks to its speedy 2.0 GHz Atom Z2580 processor and PowerVR SGX544 MP2 graphics. Tablet has 1GB of RAM memory and 16GB of built-in storage, which can be further expanded by using microSD cards up to 32GB, which will be enough for almost anyone.


    Battery is 3750mAh, and enables around 7 hours of watching HD video over WiFI, which is a great result for a tablet in this category. It also means that in standard use like web browsing or listening music, battery will have much longer lifespan, above 12 hours. Display is made in IPS technology, its 7.85 inches, has 1024x768 pixel resolution, and has very good viewing angles. It also has very good colour reproduction and its very bright.


    In connectivity, it features WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 support, and, GPS with A-GPS , a feature that is very rare an a tablet of this size and price. It runs Android 4.2 JellyBean, and thanks to its speedy processor and great optimization of hardware, apps run almost in an instant, and games run smoothly.


    There are two cameras, a 5 megapixel on the back and 2 megapixel camera on the front, which is perfect for video calls. In almost all tablets, cameras are secondary, but on Tesla, they make pretty good pictures, better than many big-brand phones or tablets. A definitive plus.


    Tesla, as a whole, makes a extremely good tablet and fantastic value : great screen, latest Intel processor, GPS, big battery, and nicely optimized hardware are unique in this class and at this price. A true performer and a true A+ device!
