Gone are the days of cute little smartphones; now the bigger the devices, the better it is. Even using tablets for making voice calls is not considered as weird. So if you one of those who are pissed off using so called phablets and want to go big but without spending a fortune, you can check out these tablets which are available for under Rs 10,000. Even if you don’t ditch your smartphone, you can consider these as additional voice calling makes these tablets much useful than WiFi only devices.
This tablet was launched only in January this year for Rs 9,999.
The best thing about MTV Slash 4X is that it has not one but two SIM slots and on top of that it is powered by a quad-core processor which has a clock speed of 1.3 GHz. It has also a healthy 1 GB RAM so we expect it would give a decent performance including gaming.
The 7-inch display of the Slash 4X has 1024×600 pixel resolution. It has a 2 megapixel camera at the back and a 0.3 megapixel camera in the front. The tablet comes packed with 4 GB on-board storage and a memory card slot that can hold up to 32 GB micro SD card. This tablet has a 3000 mAh battery.
Like other MTV-Swipe products, this tablet too comes with MTV-content such as MTV Hottie and MTV Funny.

This tablet comes with a single SIM slot and allows users to make voice calls as well as access 3G internet via it. Besides, it also supports WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0connectivity, micro USB port and GPS for navigation.
But it is not the voice call that makes it so important. The tablet has the 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 8225Q quad core processor. It has also 1 GB RAM, Adreno 203 graphics processing unit and Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) operating system – this combination would definitely give a decent performance and you could also try your hands on some high end games.
The Xolo QC800 has an 8 inch display with 1024×768 pixels resolution. It has also 4 GB ROM (about 2 GB is expected to be available for users), 32 GB expandable storage, 2 megapixel rear camera, and a 0.3 megapixel front camera. The tablet has a big 4000 mAh Li-Po battery which claims to provide12 hours of talktime and 360 hours of standby on 3G network.
It is available for Rs 9,999.
Though this tablet has not a quad core processor like the previous two tablets, but the Idea Tab A1000 has 1 GB RAM which in association with its 1.2GHz dual-core MediaTek 8317 processor provides decent performance. It has also voice calling support. Besides, the Lenovo Idea Tab A1000 has USB OTG support which allows using a pen drive directly in this tablet (via a OTG cable).
The Idea Tab A1000 comes with a 7 inch display with 1024×600 pixels resolution. This Android 4.1 Jelly Bean based tablet has a 0.3 megapixel front camera, 32 GB expandable storage slot, WiFi, and Bluetooth 3.0.
However, this Lenovo tablet has neither 3G connectivity option either through SIM or dongle, or a rear camera. However, currently it is available for as low as Rs 6,700 which makes it a very good tablet at this price range.
iBall Slide 3G 7334Q-10
It is yet another quad core tablet to have voice calling facility. However, only one e-retailer is currently offering it for below Rs 10,000 (Amazon.in offering it for Rs 9,769 at the time of writing) while all others are offering it for around Rs 11,500.
The iBall Slide Performance Series 3G 7334Q-10 comes with a 7 inch touchscreen with 1024×600 pixels resolution. It has a 1.3GHz Quad Core Cortex A7 processor, 1 GB DDR3 RAM, 8 GB built-in storage, 32GB micro SD card slot, and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system.
It has a good looking 3000 mAh Li-Ion battery but the company has not revealed its output. As far as connectivity goes it is quite rich with WiFi (b/g/n), Bluetooth, and a micro USB port. It has got two SIM slots with dual standby feature. Note that it is a 3G tablet; you can use any operators SIM card to access 3G network.
This is the best tablet under Rs 10,000 if you go by its specifications but Oplus is a new brand in the tablet market and it is perhaps their first tablet. Also since we have not reviewed it, we cannot swear by its quality.
Nonetheless the tablet looks lucrative with its 7-inch IPS LCD display with 1280×800 pixel resolution (high definition). The XonPad 7 is powered by quad-core 1.2 GHz mobile processor with 1 GB DDR3 RAM to smoothly run the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update. The tablet packs 16 GB on-board storage and has a 32 GB memory card slot as well.
The XonPad 7 also accommodates a 3G network SIM module and also offers voice calling. Apart from that, the wireless connectivity options include WiFi and Bluetooth. At the rear, the tablet has a 5 megapixel camera with video recording capability and auto focus. In its front lies a 2 megapixel camera for video calls. The 310 grams weighing XonPad 7 tablet packs a 3500 mAh battery.
