Reliance Communications unveils CDMA tablet @ Rs 12,999
NEW DELHI: Reliance on Monday launched the CDMA Tab, a 7-inch version of its GSM tablet that hit the market last year. The tablet has a capacitive screen and runs Android 2.3 (Gingerbread).
Reliance said the tablet would be supported by the company's CDMA network across 22 circles in over 1000 towns in the country. The device is priced at Rs 12,999.
In terms of design and hardware, the CDMA Tab is similar to the device Reliance had launched last year. It has 512 MB RAM, supports micro SD card, weighs just 397 grams and features a 2MP rear camera. We had reviewed the Reliance 3G Tab last year. You can read the review here.
Of course, in the last few months tablet market has changed a bit. The price cut on BlackBerry Playbook - the basic model is still selling for around Rs 15,000 at online stores - means that most of the cheap tablets have lost the value preposition that they earlier enjoyed.
"Having redefined the tablet market in the country last year with the launch of Reliance 3G Tab, we are yet again the first to introduce the country's first CDMA Tab. With the rapid increase in data consumption in India, the launch of the CDMA Tab is another step to carry forward our mission of wire-free India," said Sanjay Behl, group head (brand & marketing) at Reliance Communications Limited.
Reliance said the new tablet is pre-loaded with 15 popular applications to provide information services (browsing, navigation maps and search), communication services ( email, blog, SMS, and MMS), entertainment services (music, video, and games), and social networking services ( Facebook). Additionally, access to thousands of applications is provided through the Android Market, it said.
