Swipe Telecom has upped its Android tablet portfolio with the launch of a new product called the Legend. This slate works as a phone, and also has dual-SIM (GSM) functionality. (Be warned though — talking on a tablet can attract some awkward stares!) Like most budget tablets, the Legend's 7" capacitive screen has pixel dimensions of 800x400. It's powered by a 1.5 GHz dual core processor, and has 512 MB of RAM. For those desperate shots, you get a 2 mp rear camera — plus there's a 1.3 mp front camera for voice chat. The tablet comes with Android 4.0 (Ice cream Sandwich), which is pretty much a norm these days. Here's the list of specifications from the Legend's product page:
- 7" TFT LCD screen with 800x400 pixels.
- 1.5 GHz dual-core CPU, 512 MB of RAM.
- 4 GB of internal storage, MicroSD card slot (Supports up to 32 GB).
- 2 mp rear camera, 1.3 mp front camera.
- Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS.
- Android 4.0 (ICS).
- Dual-SIM (GSM) with voice calling and 3G support.
- FM Radio, Orientation sensor.
- 3600 mAh battery.
- Package Contents: Power adaptor, Data cable, Earphones, OTG cable.
The Legend is available for Rs 12,000, and can be bought from Swipe's official eStore. In a similar price bracket, you can consider Huawei's MediaPad 7 Lite, which comes with a pixel-packed IPS screen and also phone functionality (but not dual-SIM).
