It was just waiting to happen, and now US-based Swipe Telecom has done it. The company has launched a dual-SIM Android tablet in India. This dial-SIM Android tablet is dubbed as Swipe Tab All-in-One and will be available in the country for INR 11,999.
While, we understand the use of dual-SIM in smartphones, there is not really any major use of having two SIM cards in a tablet. You can still find a few use-cases, but those will be for a very niche market. But after-all, it does not really hurt having an extra SIM card slot.
Powered by Android 4.0.3, the Swipe Tab All-in-One comes with 7-inch display with 1028x768p resolution, 8GB of internal storage, microSD card slot, 3G connectivity, 2MP rear camera and 1.3MP front camera. The tablet also packs FM Radio, 1GB RAM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS, and 4,000 mAh battery.
The Swipe Tab All-in-One also comes pre-loaded with Olive Office Premium, e-book Reader, Audio Recording app and various games.
We are yet to get out hands on the tablet, but on-paper, it does seem very decent for a price tag of INR 12K.
