After having seen a number of brands going head to head in the smartphone segment in India, it's time for tablets. Of late we have seen various brands launching their tablets in India. Motorola Xoom, HTC Flyer, Acer Iconia Tab A500, BlackBerry's PlayBook and Apple's iPad 2 are some of the prominent names in that series. And the latest to join the bandwagon is Beetel Teletech. If reports are to be believed, the Bharti group company is going to launch a seven-inch tablet PC by next month.
Detailed information about the specifications of the unnamed Bharti tablet is still not available. But what we know is that it will run Android 2.2 OS with 3G support. And it will feature a two sided camera. The tablet is likely to be a low-priced one.
Beetel Teletech, which is a prominent name in fixed-line equipment market, is also one of the newest entrants in the mobile telephony. The company has already rolled out 16 models in the country. And it has set its sights on the tablets – a booming segment in the country. The company seems to be banking on the popularity of Android OS for consolidating its position in the market.
India's home-grown tablets have gradually making their place in the market. Recently, Bangalore-based EAFT Technologies launched their own Android-run tablet called MagicTile Marathon. Prior to the MagicTile, Olive Telecom, MSI and HCL Technologies have launched their tablet PCs in India. And it's pretty apparent local mobile phone companies like Micromax are also willing to try their luck in this segment.
One of the most anticipated tablets in the country is Sakshat. The ultra low-cost tablet is likely to be launched soon.
