BSNL , the government operated leading telecom provider in India has launched three Android based tablets.The Tablets are manufactured by an Indian company Pantel based in Noida.
Of the Three tablets one is a low cost model which seems to be a competitor to Aakash tablet , with a better specification.Panta Tpad IS 701r is a 7 -inch resistive touch screen tablet, running on Android 2.3.The screen offers a 800 x 600 px resolution.It is a WiFi only model with a 1 GHz processor,256MB RAM with HDMI support and a front facing VGA camera.It is powered by a 3000 mAh battery and has a 2GB internal storage which can be expanded further with MicroSD card.It is priced Rs.3250.
The second one is similar to the first but better in the specification.Panta Tpad_ws704c, in addition to the specs of previous tab,has an inbuilt A-GPS, Accelerometer and Bluetooth and offers 3G connectivity.It also has a better RAM of 512 MB and is equipped with a 2MP rear camera.with the same resistive touch screen, the price of this seems a bit high at Rs.10,999.
The third from the company, satisfies us with all the basic needs that we expect from a tablet.Tpad WS802C with an 8 -inch capacitive touch screen, 1 GHz processor and 512MB RAM, promises to be a tablet worth the cost.Similar to the second one, this too has an inbuilt A-GPS, Accelerometer and Bluetooth.The internal memory is larger at 4GB.With most smartphones being around the same price it would be considerable to go for this tab at Rs.13,500.
