Top 5 Voice-Calling Tablets In India
Brands like iBall, Swipe, Zync, Huawei and Micromax form the part of this edition.
The Indian brands are queuing up with their range tablets in the country and the latest batch has seen in the inclusion of SIM-slots, which enable you to make voice calls from these devices.
iBall Slide 3G
The iBall Slide 3G 7334 runs on Android 4.0 aka Ice Cream Sandwich and the company claims that it will support 3G networks 7.2 Mbps download speed and 5.76 Mbps upload speed.
The tablet also includes a built-in FM transmitter, which is something uncommon. The tablet is powered by a 1 GHz Cortex A9 processor and 512 MB RAM. Both the SIM card slots have support for 3G network.
The tablet sports a 17.8-cm (7-inch) HD WSVGA capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 1024 X 600 pixels and supports multi-touch. The iBall Slide 3G 7334 sports two cameras, a 2 MP camera at the back and a VGA camera at the front. The camera is capable of taking 360 degree panoramic photos and sports multi-shot functions. Users can also make 3G video calling by using the front camera. The device is loaded with a 3,100 mAh battery.
The iBall Slide 3G 7334 is priced at Rs 10,999.
Swipe Halo 3G
The Halo 3G comes with its 3G SIM, video calling capability, and large, 17.7-cm (7-inch) screen. But the Halo Edge with its 2G SIM may actually be a better deal. The screen is the same size, but the pixel dimensions are 1024x768, which means more pixels and therefore better clarity. Like the Halo 3G, the SIM supports voice as well as data. It is a thousand rupees cheaper, too.
Both the tablets come with just 4 GB of internal storage (meaning about 2 GB at your disposal), so you are almost compelled to invest in a microSD card at the outset.
The Swipe Halo 3G costs Rs 10,000.
Zync is one of the most prominent names associated with Indian-branded tablets in the country. The Z999 comes with a 17.7-cm (7-inch) capacitive display and runs Android 4.0 aka Ice Cream Sandwich. The device is powered by a 1.5 GHz single core ARM Cortex A8 processor, 512 MB RAM. The tablet sports 2.0 MP rear camera and 0.3 MP front shooter.
Features like 3G, Wi-Fi, HDMI, USB Port, Digital Media Reader and Bluetooth 2.1 are included. The device has flash memory of 8 GB and memory is expandable up to 32 GB. The Z999 is loaded with 4,200 mAh battery.
The Zync Z999 is priced at Rs 11,990.
Micromax Funbook Talk
The Funbook Talk comes preloaded with Android 4.0 aka Ice cream sandwich and sports a 17.7-cm (7-inch) capacitive TFT LCD display with 800x480 pixel resolution. The tablet is powered by a 1 GHz processor with 512 MB RAM.
As the name suggests, the tablet doubles up as a phone, thanks to built-in voice calling and 2G connectivity support. This is the first tablet from the company to do so, with earlier Funbook tablets supporting 3G via USB dongles. It also has a mini HDMI port. The tablet features a VGA front camera and comes with a 2,800mAh battery, claiming up to 5 hours of talk time. The Talk has 4 GB internal storage with expansion options up to 32 GB via microSD card support. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi and 3G dongle support via USB 2.0.
