Swipe telecommunications and MTV has yet again launched another product in India. This time company has moved up from the phablet market and has come up with a 7.85 Inch Tablet, MTV Slate Priced at Rs.14,999 . The last phablet from swipe in India was Swipe MTV Volt 1000.
This tablet is powered by a 1.2 GHz Quad core processor which is based on cortex A7 architecture. The rival Google nexus 7 comes with a slightly better processor based on A9 ARM architecture. The RAM capacity is standard at 1 GB. The Internal memory is 8 GB which can be further expanded to 32 GB using MicroSD architecture.
The Android 4.2.2 Jelly bean Operating system based Slate features a 7.85 Inch display with 1024 x768 pixel resolutions which gives you a pixel density of 164 ppi. This is significantly less than what Google Nexus 7 is offering in terms of pixel density (216 ppi), however the display is comparatively larger in Size
The camera of 5MP is pretty impressive. Swipe has taken the camera features seriously unlike other Tablet manufacturers. A front camera of 0.3 MP is also available for video calling.
The battery capacity is 3200 mAh which is less than what we expect at this price range, Simmtronics Xpad Mini and Asus Google Nexus 7 both provide with a better battery capacity. Connectivity features include 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS and 3.5 mm audio jack.
Asus will soon bring its next gen Nexus 7 with 2 GB RAM to India hopefully by the end of this year. This tablet too will provide a very viable option for a couple of thousand more. The Simmtronics XPad Mini is offering similar specifications at a cheaper price of 9,999 INR. This tab will also receive fierce competition from Samsung Galaxy Tab 3.0 7 inch and Asus Google Nexus 7 in India. Seeing all this you can safely conclude that Swipe has landed its ship in fierce water this time and will have to struggle for that chunk of market share.
