    hello guys, i m new here..did anyone buy beetel magiq…in my opinion resistive screens are good for taking hand written notes (with basic plastic stylus)…capacitive doesnt allow this…it needs digitizer pen (such as htc hflyer or galaxy note, but expensive)…i would be buying beetel soon…more over iit’s size allows you to put it in pant pocket or jeans pocket nd quite handy to make calls as well

    hello guys I m new here…did any one of buy beetel magiq?….as per my research, 1 advantage with resistive screen is you can take hand written notes (with a stylus or finger nails)…this isnt possible with capacitive screens (unlike galaxy note, htc flyer etc)

    I bought a reliance 3G tab recently. It is working great. I have read many reviews on the net about this tab before purchasing it,
    and what i have found later is it doesnt support VIDEO CALLING as many reviews stating it does support. U can use the 3G feature only for fast browsing.The main advantage of 3G which is Video calling is missing. this is major draw back of the product.I have called the Customer care of the both Reliance and ZTE. both of them agreed that it doesnt support video calling.

    Dont go for beetel the screen is resistive while reliance is capacitive and that is the major diff. why to pay for old techonolgy when u r getting new one in very less diff. I m using reliance 3 g tab. it is awesome & the package what they are giving is also wonderful. + in reliance you are not required to pay for data while watching tv else all other operators are charging. So again you save a lot of money.

    Richa there is hell lot of difference between the branded high priced tablet from samsung, motorola and apple and these tablet. They are really class apart although costly. Now these tablet launched by reliance and airtel are cheap made in china product bought by these company at around 60 to 80 $ and selling in india at more than 200$. Wait and watch a as mercury launched its tablet at 9499Rs yesterday and is better than both these tablets. You can also visit for more options on affordable android tablets as this company has product ranging from 99$-799$ which comes with dual boot that is both android and windows 7

      Sushil, i totally understand that the higher segment tablets are bit better from the Reliance 3G tab but have u experienced the Reliance Tab? i Have. I works almost like Apple, Samsung etc. Camera though i will say is not very great but then its a phone+a tablet and most imp has an android upgraded version. Its a very gud option if anyone is looking for a phone in the Range of Rs 13k. Why waste on an android ph when u get a tablet in the same price and that too 3G enabled.

      At least ill like flaunting a tablet. U must try ur hands at the Reliance 3G tab

      And regarding the price arent u paying a very high price for the Apples and The samsungs tablets??? arent they foreign made??? brand name ke upar hum thousands extra pay kr sakte hai, Unki custom duties, taxes vagera hum extra pay krte hai.. so y not try an Indian brand dis time???

        August 31, 2011 at 3:17 pm

        Yups. You can instead buy 3 Reliance tablet at a price of one Samsung Galaxy Tab in India:P

        • richa

          September 1, 2011 at 12:28 pm

          And they are coming with a one year warranty. Ab isse zada atleast i cant expect in 12,999/- for a tablet.

    Ive been following the Reliance 3G tab as i find its a good option as it comes bundled with 3G services. Otherwise a tablet itself costs 23k or above and here we get a tablet as well as services at just around 16 or 18k approx. I found a review about it. Just thought of sharing-–A-VFM-3G_7386.html
