There have been a lot of rumors in the last week, which say that Bharti Airtel plans to launch its own Android tablet in the Indian market soon. The Airtel tablet was supposed to be priced very well, and would offer decent hardware specs. Today, AndroidOS uncovered some more details of the Airtel Android tablet. It turns out that the Airtel tablet is officially known as the Beetel Magiq, and is already available at a few stores for Rs. 8,900.
The Beetel Maqiq tablet by Airtel comes with a 7 inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. It is powered by a 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and will likely come with 512 MB RAM. It also offers 8 GB internal storage and comes with a 2200 mAh battery. It also has a 2 MP primary camera and a secondary VGA camera.
It also supports 3G connectivity, which is great for a tablet in this price range. It should be announced officially in a few days.
This is not the first time an Indian company has launched an Android tablet, but none of the other tablets have been as cheap. The Olivepad was priced at over Rs. 25,000.
The Beetel Magiq may not be an Indian tablet though. It seems to be a rebranded version of the Huawei SmaKit S7.
