BSNL Launches Aakash Tab Rival | Pre Book Pantel T-Pad

BSNL (Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited) has come up with three new tablets, manufactured in India by Penta. Pantel Technologies has entered into a strategic alliance with Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL), to jointly address the data consumption & ICT needs of Indian consumers by launching a range of Internet Tablets, named “Penta TPAD’s” bundled with the data services of BSNL-3G.

The three tablets that have been launched are T-Pad IS701R, T-Pad WS704C and T-Pad WS802C

While T-Pad IS701R will be giving a clear competition to the Akaash Tablet, the other two T-Pad WS704C and T-Pad WS802C have been specifically launched to compete with the Reliance & Beetel Tablets.

Pantel has already started taking the pre-book orders with tablets costing INR 3250, INR10999 & INR 13500 respectively for T-Pad IS701R, T-Pad WS704C and T-Pad WS802C

The Penta TPAD IS7O1R features a 7″ resistive touchscreen, 1 GHz processor, 256 MB RAM, upto 32GB storage via memory card, WiFi, 3G dongle support & a front camera. It’s priced to compete the Aakash tablet at Rs 3,499. We think the technical specifications outweigh a slightly higher price than the Aakash and expect this tablet to appeal to Aakash fans.

The Penta TPAD WS704C sports a 7″ capacitive touchscreen, 1 GHz processor, 512 MB RAM, upto 32GB storage via memory card (4 GB built-in), WiFi, 3G dongle support & front as well as rear cameras. It also comes with a SIM card slot and is priced at Rs. 9,917.

The Penta TPAD WS802C has a 8″ capacitive touchscreen, 1.2 GHz processor, 512 MB RAM, upto 32GB storage via memory card (4 GB built-in), WiFi, 3G dongle support & front as well as rear cameras. It, too, features a SIM card slot and is priced at Rs. 12,678.

All tablets come with Android 2.3 and a one-year warranty. Customers can also expect to enjoy subsidized data plans from BSNL.

The feature comparison for the three tablets is as follows:

  1. This is NOT by BSNL. Actually they are just giving BSNL connection (in collaboration with BSNL) However, now they are asking customers to deposite 3500 Rs in their bank account. No COD, no CC payment, no paypal. Doesn’t seem very trustworthy. Also, absence of GPS is a handicap.

    • Neither does Reliance manufacture the “Reliance Tabs”… it’s just that they will be the network partners… But the branding part of course works this way only!!

      • Yes, but Reliance does market & support it. If I purchase a Samsung tab & shopkeeper gives me a free Idea connection (with some data privileges) it does not become Idea Pad. BSNL is NOT standing behind T-PAD. BSNL is NOT asking for money. T-PAD is NOT available at BSNL office.
