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.
