The Pepper tablet will be running on Android 2.2 Froyo and additional hardware will be available as an option such as external keyboard.

With this newcomer, the Android tablet world is really getting shaken in India. First with the launch of the Reliance Communication tablet last week, available for 12,999 rupees, then by earlier this week by India’s Beetel Teletech with the Beetel Magiq tablet for only 9,999 rupees.

But why are companies releasing so many Android tablet in India? According to industry experts, many Indians are planning to buy a computer. But most of them should end-up buying a tablet. So if manufacturer can sell their low priced tablets to a portion of these emerging users, that would represent a huge market. Remember, after China, India has the most population.

That’s a lot of money at stakes, no wonder everyone wants a share of it.
