Swipe telecom has now launched Swipe Tab All in One, and proudly claims to be the first to launch a dual SIM tablet in India. The USP is 7 inch screen, dual cameras, dual SIM with 3G support and GPS.
The All in one tablet is powered by a single core 1.5GHz processor coupled with PowerVR GPU clocked at 500 MHz. Add to this a 1GB RAM (DDR3) with 8GB internal storage sailing on the Android 4.0 OS (ICS). The tablet weighs 330 grams and is 11 mm thin.
On the Swipe Telecom website it is clearly mentioned that the Processor is 1.5 GHz (Cumulative Frequency), which means the 1.5GHz includes the GPU frequency. It is safe to assume that the processor will be of 1GHz frequency (1.0GHz + 0.5GHz (500MHz)=1.5GHz).
The display resolution is 1028×768 pixels on a 7 inch capacitive touchscreen. There are 2 SIM slots (Dual SIM) with 3G support. This tab can be used as a phone. There is Wi-Fi, not sure if it has Bluetooth, but does come with GPS and built in FM radio.
The battery is of 4000 mAh capacity that should easily give a usage time of about 5 to 6 hours or even mode depending on the usage.

The Swipe all in one tablet seems like a normal phone in a form of a tablet. The screen resolution is great, GPU power I am not yet sure how it will be as compared with Mali 400 GPU, though I believe the PowerVR performance will be lower. What I like is the built in GPS and FM radio, however it’s still not clear if the tab has built in Bluetooth – its not mentioned in the specs but in the image it is mentioned.
Though the tablet does come with tempting features the dual core tabs is what many users will prefer.
