WishTel has now launched the WishTel IRA ICON HD tablet with an 8 inch HD screen and with built-in 3G SIM slot that offers on the move 3G data access and phone functionality. The IRA ICON HD is priced at Rs. 12,999.

The WishTel IRA ICON HD tab as mentioned sports an 8 inch capacitive HD screen the resolution is not mentioned but possibly could be with 1024 x 768 pixels. This tab runs on Android 4.0 OS over a 1.2 GHz single core processor with 8GB internal storage and 1GB RAM. The tab also supports HDMI port which points to the fact that it probably will be with an Allwinner A10 Chipset.

The dual core tablets are already available in the Indian markets and users will prefer those instead of the single core version. However so far there is no dual core tab (low cost) available with built in SIM slot. It seems manufacturers are pushing the single core technology with bigger screen and with built in 3G, maybe to clear the old stocks.

Other features included are built in 3G SIM slot, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Stereo speakers, rear 2MP and front VGA camera, HDMI / Mini USB / Micro USB / MicroSD slots, 4 dimensional G-Sensor and 3.5mm jack.

There is a slight confusion regarding the battery. Not sure of its 5500 mAh or 6000 mAh capacity. The company claims a usage of about 6 hours from a single charge.

For a price of Rs. Rs.12,999 it seems to be on the higher side but definitely better than the Swipe All in One tabletthat is priced at Rs. 11,999. Recently ADCOM Apad 721C was also launched another tab with built in 3G / 7 inch screen for Rs. 9,250.
