Simmtronics, HCL launch Android tablets with voice calling in India
CES might be hogging all the limelight, but that has not deterred the Indian manufacturers from announcing new Android products in the country. Two such manufacturers have launched Android tablets in the country in the last 48 hours.
HCL has released Me V1 tablet for INR 7,790, while Simmtronics has launched XPAD X-801 for INR 8,499.
Talking about HTC Me V1 tab first, it features a 7-inch WVGA display and is not extraordinary in any regard. Seems like HCL was planning to release it months ago but it was delayed. It also features Android 4.0, 1Ghz processor, 2MP rear camera, front camera, 1GB RAM and 3200 mAh battery.
The tablet also supports voice calling, but inbuilt 3G is missing, however you can use USB dongles. Anther downside of the tablet is missing support for Google Play, which is the must have feature, else you will have a hard time finding popular and sage Android apps.
Coming to Simmtronics XPAD X-801, the tablet comes with 8-inch 800x600p display, 1.2 GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, Android 4.0, 2MP rear camera, front camera, 512MB RAM and 4000 mAh battery. You will also get voice calling support, but similar to HCL Me V1, the inbuilt 3G support is absent here and you will need a dongle to access it.
Both the tablets are now available in the country.
