After announcing it during the company's quarterly results, Indian telecom service provider Reliance Communications, has commercially launched a CDMA network based tablet. Priced at Rs 12,999, the tablet's features are identical to R-Com's GSM tablet, Reliance 3G Tab. It sports a 7-inch capacitive touch screen along with 512 MB RAM, a 2MP front and rear camera, a micro SD external storage, and runs Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). The Tab is pre-loaded with 15 popular applications such as an office suite - Documents To Go, social networking services, Mobile TV, among others and also offers voice calling, GPS and video recording capability. The tablet will be available in Reliance World Stores, Reliance Mobile outlets and retail stores in all the 22 CDMA circles of Reliance. The company is also offering a one year free subscription of McAfee Mobile Security, 2 months free subscription of R-ADAG's online movie streaming service, BigFlix+ and Rs 250 worth of calling on Reliance Global Call in addition to a free 4GB SD card. It also claims to offer postpaid plans with discounts upto 40% on the regular tariff. Last year, the company had launched its 3G Tab with similar technical specifications and price. We had earlier pointed out that the configuration is insufficient for tablets and that Gingerbread is not suited to tablets. As an aside, it is interesting to note that the company launched both the tablets with the same price. Related: - Our Take On RCOM’s 3G Tablet
