Android tablets are not in large numbers in the market right now, though some manufacturers are slowly rolling out some tabs all around the world. With the launch of Honeycomb with the Motorola XOOM in February, things didn't go as planned for Google and the manufacturers. However, there were tablets in the market long before Honeycomb was launched. Tablets running on Android 1.6 to 2.3 are currently available in the market. The Samsung Galaxy Tab is one such tablet, which launched during the second half of 2010 and did quite well in the market. A Gingerbread update was recently rolled out to most Galaxy Tabs in the market. Now, Indian telecommunications giant Reliance is launching a new 3G+Wi-Fi tablet, which will be rolled out with the company's bundled 3G packages.

This 7" tablet seems like the best bet for customers looking for a pocket friendly tablet to carry around at all times. The Reliance 3G Tab, as it is known, comes with a decent feature set which could easily motivate customers to purchase it right away. The tablet comes with 512 MB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable memory via SD cards (comes with a free 4 GB card), 2 MP rear camera as well as a front facing camera for video calls, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread. The tablet, apparently, will come preloaded with a bunch of handy business and social networking apps such as Documents To Go, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

The President of Reliance Communications, Mahesh Prasad said in a statement, "Reliance Communications has always been a pioneer in taking bold steps to innovate and re-invent the telecom ecosystem in the country, and has always believed in bringing products to Indian customers that fulfill their needs and desires with incredible affordability. The launch of Reliance 3G Tab is in line with this principle. We believe the unmet demand of a fully loaded tablet at an aggressive price point will now fuel the aspirations of the evolved customers".

The best part of the tablet, however, is its pricing. Priced at a mere Rs 12,999, the Reliance 3G Tab promises to be one of the cheapest tablets in the market. That being said, one can't purchase the device by simply paying the amount. A user has to select from a bunch of data packages bundled with free data usage. The company is offering monthly as well as annual data plans for the customers to choose from. Monthly data packages are offered in two variants, one costing Rs 1,812 per month with 2 GB of free data and the other costing Rs 4,812 per month with 5 GB of free data. Head over to Reliance to get more info on all the data plans.

The Reliance Tab has been launched in Delhi, Mumbai, and Kolkata and other 3G enabled regions will follow soon. Users can head over to the respective Reliance Mobile and Reliance World outlets in the city for more info on the availability of the tablet. The Reliance Tab could pose serious competition to other 7" tablets in the market, especially with the reasonable pricing. Let's see how things turn out in the coming days.
