Pantel WS802C-2G was launched today. It is an 8 inch tablet with a 1.2 GHz processor, 1GB RAM and voice call support via 2G SIM slot. This tablet is priced at Rs. 8299.

As of now there are very few low cost tablets available in the Indian markets that are offering voice call functionality. In you may recall Micromax had recently launched the Funbook Talk that too came with a built in SIM slot with 2G support (data as well as voice calls). The MMX talk is priced at Rs. 7,500 – looking at the features the Penta WS802C-2G with an 8 inch screen makes a better option for approx Rs. 800 extra.

The Pantel WS802C-2G houses the cortex A8 processor clocked at 1.2GHz with Mali 400 GPU. This coupled with 1 GB RAM and 8 gigs of internal storage will be more than enough for basic to advance users. The display screen is 8 inches slightly bigger than the 7 inch model with I guess the same resolution of 800×480 pixels.

The WS802C-2G also comes with front VGA camera, mini USB port, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, micro SD slot, HDMI port and 3.5mm jack. You can connect external dongle for accessing 3G connection using OTG cable via USB port. The battery of 5000 mAh capacity should keep the tab working for over 5 to 6 hours on a full charge.

Pantel is also offering BSNL SIM card with 4GB free data usage – valid for 2 months. Buyers can also opt for keyboard accessory with built in stereo speakers for an addition amount of Rs. 1499.
