It has a high resolution 7” resistive touch screen (TFT Display) and is powered by a 1GHz processor and inbuilt DDR II 256M RAM .

The T-Pad IS701R has WiFi 802.11b/g/n and has a 0.3 MP camera. It also has a USB slot also, a feature which is also seen in the Aakash Tablet. The resistive touch screen is a letdown but at this price nothing better can be there.The battery is Li-ion 3000mah 5V 2A.
