  29. I bought this tablet from and it was delivered to me on 29th Oct 2012. I had reasonable expectations from this tablet knowing the limitations it has because of the xburst processort (MIPS processor architecture). My expectation was basically have a tool to check my email frequently using the android email apps, browse news websites and then use any apps (I install only the ones available at Google play, no hacks) that are supported on this platform. It was serving well till yesterday 18th Oct 2012 when all of a sudden the touch screen has stopped responding. So, within a month it has come up with a major issue which makes it basically unusable. I havent changed anything or installed any apps in the last week or so. I tried contacting the Karbonn service centers in Bangalore that are listed on Karbonn’s website. Some of them say that they are no longer Karbonn service centers and some of them say that they do not provide service for Karbonn Tablets yet. I tried calling Karbonn’s helpdesk and also corporate office, nobody lifts the phone. I have sent emails to their helpdesk and also posted a complaint on their website today.
    As I progress with getting this issue resloved, i will post it here so that it may serve as a review for other prospective tablet buyers from Karbonn.

    • You cannot connect Mobile to tablet through USB.

    • Rajat Chodhary says:

      Method 1. Solutions for Generic Problem:

      Then, Connect your dongle to tab and wait until it blinks once at a time (This means dongle registered to your Mobile Carrier).
      Go to Settings > Connectivity > More > Mobile Networks > APN and check your Mobile Carrier APN.
      Or, Tap on i at lower right corner and select Settings > Connectivity > More > Mobile Networks > APN and check your Mobile Carrier APN.
      Remember, access charge applied as per Mobile Carrier Plans.
      Happy Internet Browsing :)

    can we play temple run with karbonn tab 2 or 3 smoothly without lagging.

    • Bro, if you looking for a seamless gaming experience, I would recommend Karbonn Smart Tab 8, it has dual core processor.
      I am afraid Karbonn Smart Tab 2 or 3 will not give you smooth gaming experience with Temple Run, there might be some lagging.

    From the day I started using it on Ist Jan.2013 [As I had a feeling to start using from the New Year day] It got struck the Touch screen did not respond It was not being unlocked.I submitted it with the Karbonn’s Service centre {M/s Dhir Electronics,near Div. No. 3,Ludhiana] They had sent it to Delhi.
    I received it back after One month;I was told that its circuit plate has been replaced by a new one WITH “JELLY -BEANS ” software.
    1. I installed a few applications most of them were SHOWN ” UNFORTUNATELY STOPPED WORKING”.
    2. ALL media files were running at a ‘nearly’ NON- AUDIBLE volume[sound].
    3. It {TABLET} was again deposited at the same service centre this volume /sound defect was repaired by them after two days.
    4. i) Now the tab. gets HUNG again and again.
    ii) The BLUE TOOTH Transfer is not at all working.It neither can send nor receive any file from any device i.e. Mobile phone, My computer.
    5. Most of Applications [though shown compatible with the device;Tab. by Google Play] are SHOWN “UNFORTUNATELY STOPPED WORKING..

    Now Today I have again Deposited it With The Service centre” DHIR ELECTRONICS” they have told me that it will be sent to Delhi AGAIN.

  59. please help
    my karbonn smart tab 2 restarted and stop working after connected to wifi. I rest it but I face the same problem when connect to wifi.

  60. On 22 May,2013; I have again submitted; my Smart Tab. ST2;for the THIRD Time;within EIGHT months from date of Purchase[26-09-2012];again with same problems[ NON FUNCTIONAL APPLICATIONS] ;this time the Display has been changed by the Company’s Local SERVICE CENTRE;at his own will. ;which bears so many OILY TYPE STAINS Appearing from its inside. Applications shown compatible by GOOGLE PLAY;when installed were once again NON- FUNCTIONING; BLUE TOOTH TRANSFER—- ONE ONE WAY POSSIBLE. THE KARBONN SMART GAMES, SKYPE,NEXG TV all non functional;. I ham left with no alternative- except going to the Media and Consumer’s Forum.

  61. guys.. calm down.. the company already mentions about the processor of karbonn smart tab 2 to be a xburst 1.2Ghz processor.. xburst is an MIPS technology based chip.. and the one we all normally use in our android mobile or tablet is ARM based technology.. as apps are very few with support of mips processor so we don’t get them for our smart tab 2..
    that’s a problem…
    well here is a solution that can help run few arm supported apps on our MIPS device..
    download magic app which converts arm apps to MIPS apps n then try to install and run app on magic code..
