Reliance Communications has launched an Android tablet with 3G network support, becoming the first telecom operator in India to do so.
“Initially, the SIM-locked tablet will be available in Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata circles. Later by the weekend, it will be available in remaining 10 circles where we are offering services,” said an RCom spokesperson.
The device is priced at Rs 12,999 and is available bundled with 3G tariff plans — the teleco is offering 1 GB data every month for 12 months for Rs 4,500, 2 GB for Rs 5,500 and 5 GB for Rs 7,000. Monthly plans are also on offer with 20 to 33 per cent discount on regular tariffs.
The Reliance 3G Tab, manufactured by ZTE, is based on Android 2.3 featuring a 7 inch capacitive touchscreen. The tablet comes with 512 MB RAM and a microSD external storage, weighing just 389 gram. The tablet also has a 2.0 megapixel rear camera and a front camera.
The tablet will support push email and other Android features like document on the go for editing and viewing documents. Other features include Mobile TV, voice calling, GPS and video recording. Reliance Communications is also offering a free 4 GB SD card but customers can upgrade the memory up to 32 GB.
