In the past the collaboration between the MTV India and Swipe Telecom has given a birth to a number of budget friendly tablets. Yet again, the partnership has brought their latest offering in the Indian market in the form of tablet named Swipe MTV Slash 4X.
The MTV Swipe Slash 4X is officially priced at Rs. 9,999. But the device is available for Rs. 8,990 on eBay.in for limited period. The tablet would be available on retail stores from February onwards.
The Swipe MTV Slash 4X comes with a 7-inch capacitive touch screen OGS (One-Glass-Solution) IPS display offering a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels.
Unlike the company's earlier tablets, the latest one is powered by a quad-core processor clocked at 1.3 GHz coupled with 1GB DDR3 RAM and runs on Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) operating system.
Well, the imaging department comes in a form of a 2-megapixel rear camera with flash and a front facing VGA shooter.
Connectivity options include 3G (via SIM card slots), WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS. Also there is a dual SIM (with dual standby) support and a voice calling functionality.
It houses 4GB of internal storage capacity which can be enhanced up to 32GB via microSD card.
The tablet which measures 9.6mm thick and weighs 267 grams is powered by 3000 mAh battery.
Also the tablet would be loaded with a number of pre-loaded apps like Count your drinks, This Day in Music and updated versions of MTV India, MTV Funny and MTV Hottie app.
At the launch event, Shripal Gandhi, Founder and CEO of Swipe Telecom said, "The MTV Slash 4X was the next logical step after the brilliant performance of MTV Slash. Our successful partnership with MTV that has helped us cater to the youth audience gives us the confidence that MTV Slash 4X will find many takers. This product will set a benchmark in the category due to its brilliant performance which is also priced modestly."
The recently spotted Datawind UbiSlate 7CZ and tablets coming from Micromax, iBall and other domestic manufacturers will be surely affected by the Slash 4X tablet from Swipe and MTV.
