If the current crop of tablets for budget-conscious users in India wasn’t enough, the Pantel Penta T-Pad IS701C launched in collaboration with BSNL, has arrived to claim its share of the limelight. At less than Rs. 5000, the slate offers a user-friendly interface with the Android OS and multitasking capabilities, thanks to its 1GHz processor.
The front panel of this slab is dominated by a TFT LCD capacitive multi-touch display of 800 x 480p resolution that spans across 7 inches. Similar to the recently launched Swipe tablets and the Intex i-Buddy, the Penta serves a generous scoop of Ice Cream Sandwich too. According to its manufacturer, the slate caters to casual users as well as gamers, business professionals and students amongst others.
“It gives me immense pleasure to announce the latest offering from our stable. We are committed to deliver an excellent user experience and aspire to bridge the digital divide which is so evident in our country. Our tablet is loaded with a variety of interesting features which are fine tuned to our consumers’ demands. Our latest product is a testimony to the months of hard work by our research and development team dedicated to bringing the latest tablet at an affordable price of INR 4,999,” commented Vijender Singh, Managing Director, Pantel Technologies.
Furthermore, the Wi-Fi-certified Pantel Penta T-Pad IS701C can run on 3G networks with the help of an external dongle and is embedded with a micro-USB port and an HDMI connector too. A 0.3MP front-mounted camera and the pre-installed Skype app facilitate video conferencing on the move. The slab has also been loaded with some other applications such as Facebook, Twitter and Angry Birds. Featuring 512MB RAM, it comes with 4GB onboard memory and a microSD card slot to expand the memory by up to 32GB.
