If you have been following the Jelly Bean News, you must have heard about the latest improvements it has brought in the Android OS and a lot of things have been revamped.

The tablet has got some nice features and it can become yours for only $199. Yes, it is the cheapest and the only tablet yet with this price tag and running on JB. Although there are many good features in this tablet, it still lacks one main thing which is Adobe Flash.
