Swipe telecom has launched what they call India’s first 3D tablet – the Swipe Tab X74S for a price of Rs. 5,999. The tablet is of similar specifications when compared with other tablets but with 3D support.
The Swipe Tab X74S design, well it’s exactly similar to the Xtab A10 from the front or the rear. The only difference is that the HDMI port is missing. The Tab X74S runs on ICS (Android 4.0.3) and sports a 7 inch multi touch capacitive touchscreen with resolution of 800×480 pixels.
The Cortex A8 Allwinner A13 CPU powers this tab with Mali 400 GPU. Technically the A13 is a stripped down version of A10. In fact these A13 models do not support HDMI, hence there are no HDMI ports.
The RAM is of modest 512MB (DDR3) with 4Gigs of internal storage. Users can choose from 4GB/8GB/16GB versions the cost will vary. On the Swipe Tab X74S there is no built in 3G but you can use, via the external 3G dongle (WCDMA/EVDO/TD-SCDMA).
There is G-sensor, a rear facing 2MP camera not sure if its rear or front. HD videos at 1080p are supported and flash 10.1 too. There is a 3400 mAh battery that Swipe Telecom claims gives a playback time of about 5 to 10 hours.
Now since the Swipe Tab X74S model seems an exact replica of the Xtab A10, I am not sure if the battery is really of the 3400 mAh capacity, remember NXG also said the same when they launched the tab and it turned out that the battery was 2450 mAh. I hope Swipe Telecom have double checked the battery mAh.
The box pack contains UBS cable, charger, Earphones, Manual, OTG Cable and a pair of 3D glasses. Yes to view 3D on the tab you need to wear the 3D glasses. For more info and to pre-book the Swipe Tablet visit the SwipeTelecom website. The Swipe Tab X74S price in India is Rs. 5,999.
