Reliance 3G Tab V9A is the new buzz in town. This 1.4GHz powered android tablet will come with a high resolution display and with dual cameras. This 3G Tab will be better than its predecessor the Reliance 3G tab and will come for a price tag of Rs. 14,499.
The Reliance 3G Tab V9A sports a 7 inch capacitive touchscreen with 1024×600 pixels resolution. This is a better than the traditional 800×480 pixels resolution. A dual camera is an added advantage especially the 3MP on the rear side and the usual front camera (VGA). I believe the 3MP camera will be of fixed focus.
3G is built in via SIM slot and probably like the first 3G tab this one could also be locked on to the Reliance network (You cannot use any other SIM card). This New Reliance 3G tab supports HSDPA (14.4Mbps) and HSUPA (5.7Mbp). Other features are Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, Compass, Gsensor and even a built in FM radio. You can use it for making voice or video calls – just like a mobile phone.
The New Reliance 3G Tab V9A weighs 402 grams with 12.75mm thickness. A 3400 mAh battery powers up this tab with an estimated usage time of about 5 hours. There are many useful apps that come preloaded which include “Docs to go”. There is 4GB internal memory with 512MB RAM.
Ironically this tab runs on Android 2.3(Gingerbread OS) and no word from Reliance Communications (RCom) if it can be upgraded to Android 4.0 or Jelly bean. The Reliance 3G Tab V9A tab comes for a price of Rs. 14,499 with free offer wherein you get 3GB data usage per month valid for 3 months, a full year of McAfee mobile subscription, BigFlix movie subscription for 2 months and unlimited video calls to other reliance users via 3G for 3 months.
Well the price of Rs. 14,500 seems too high for a 2.3 Android tablet. Furthermore we do not know if it can be upgraded to ICS. Add to it the tab is locked to Reliance network plus it’s with just 4GB internal storage. If you compare this with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, the tab 2 is a clear winner, if you can spend 4K extra. An 8GB Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 might compete very closely with the new Reliance tab, i.e when it is launched.
