Reliance Communications has launched an Android tablet with 3G network support, becoming the first telecom operator in India to do so.
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.
“We believe the unmet demand of a fully loaded tablet at an aggressive price point will now fuel the aspirations of the evolved customers,” Mahesh Prasad, president, Reliance Communications said.
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.
Initially, the tablet will be available bundled with discounted 3G tariff plans in three circles of RCom – Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata. In remaining 10 circles, the tablet will be launched by the weekend.
The device is priced at Rs 12,999 and RCom is also 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.
