iBall has launched its 3G version of the iBall Slide tablet which now would have the Dual SIM capability, i.e. it can have two SIM cards with one working and one would be on stand-by mode. But one of the most interesting features is something we haven’t seen on any other tablet device till now. What we are talking about, is the FM Radio Transmitter which would help the iBall Slide broadcast an FM station and this works in a limited area. This is something new and unique, but one of the best features where it could come to good use where announcements are to be made in companies, and this tab could work for the same, while others have their Radio apps at the particular frequency.
The iBall Slide carries a few features and specifications from its previous version, where there is a 7-inch capacitive touchscreen with a screen resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels.
“We are heartened at iBall to present yet another innovation and latest technology for the Indian consumers with the launch of iBall Slide 3G 7334. It happens to be the first tablet PC with two firsts. One, it is the 1st dual SIM and two it is the 1st tablet PC to have FM transmitter function, said Sandeep Parasrampuria, Director, iBall.
We have reviewed one of the earlier versions of the iBall Slide and we liked it then too. Now, its got better with the Dual SIM, 3G connectivity and the FM transmitter. The Slide 7334 has got a 1GHz processor, a 2MP camera on the back and a 2MP camera on the front side too. There is a GPS locator too, along with the basic connectivity options like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, HDMI output and MicroUSB port.
The tablet would have Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Operating System and the price with which it is coming in India, is Rs. 10,999. Now, talking in comparison to a few other Android tablet devices with similar specifications, we suggest the Samsung Galaxy Tab only for those who have a high budget, but for those who are looking to spend around Rs. 10000 for an Android tablet which has one of the latest versions of the Android OS, and has most of the features that a basic tablet device has, along with the 3G connectivity, this is one of the devices one can go for.
iBall has launched three tablets till now in the market, but this one is the most advanced and better versions.
