Reliance Infotel may launch LTE Android tablets next year
Reliance Infotel, which is the only company with a Pan India license to launch BWA services, is mulling over to launch tablets in the country.
Reliance Infotel has already decided to use LTE (Long Term Evolution) technology in providing its services. Company is also in talks with 15 Taiwanese OEMs to bring sub-Rs 8000 tablets to India. As it will launch services in the country next year, it is expected to sell these tablets to help in the mass market adoption of this new technology.
Long Term Evolution on paper supports downlink peak rates of at least 100 Mbps, an uplink of at least 50 Mbps. As the company is planning to launch several tablets in different price slabs, we are expecting a number of them running on Android, while some are reportedly sporting a custom Java version.
Considering the rumor of investment from Reliance in Notion Ink, we might as well see the next version of Adam, which is being called Eve to support LTE and might land on Reliance Infotel, but it seems a long shot.
