In an attempt to add more and more features to their budget Android tablet offerings, the manufacturers now have started introducing tablets with SIM card slots in order to win the tablet market race.
The new 3G feature actually helps the consumers make voice calls without the need of an handset. There are not many 3G tablets in the Indian market, when it comes to low price points, however, it looks like few tech manufacturers are now working on introducing new killer tablets in the category bringing on the competition to the next level.
Following similar lines, Swipe Telecom, a California based company and the maker of the first 3D tablet in the nation has recently come up with an Android ICS based tablet priced at Rs 11,999 and dual SIM support.
At the same time, Karbonn Mobiles, another company which is aggressively releasing new products into the consumer market has also come up with a 3G and SIM card supporting tablet dubbed as Agnee.
If you are planning to upgrade to a low cost Android ICS tablet with the voice calling feature, here is a comparison between the newly launched Swipe Tab All in One and Karbonn Agnee tablets.
