WishTel has announced a hybrid Laptop – tablet called the Wishtel IRA Capsule for Rs. 16,000. This hybrid capsule will come with a detachable keyboard, connect it to use as a laptop or simply use the 10.1 inch screen as a tablet.

The IRA Capsule is powered by a dual core processor clocked at 1.6GHz running on the android jelly bean OS. The LED screen is 10.1 inches with supported resolution of 1024×786 pixel resolution. There is 1GB RAM with I guess 4GB or 8GB or more internal storage.

There is a 5MP rear camera and a front 0.3 MP. The Wishtel IRA Capsule come with built in SIM slot with 3G support. In addition there is Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.  The battery is of 8000 mAh capacity.

This hybrid tablet / laptop is expected to hit the Indian market in early April. It is hard to say if the price is right because you can get a good net-book for the same price. Moreover if you are looking for portability and if you can get your work done on an Android OS then this becomes a good option.
