Celkon's new 3G voice calling tablet, CT 888, was launched online through e-retailer Snapdeal for ₹7,999..

The tablet which shares commonalities with several other 7-inch budget tablets sports a 7-inch capacitive multi-touch display with 1,024 x 600 pixel resolution. On the downside, the tablet runs on the out-dated Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. This might come as a major setback for Celkon's new offering as there is no word heard about the plausible Android update for the tablet.

The tablet is powered by a 1.2GHz dual core processor and houses 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal memory which is expandable up to 32GB via a micro SD card. On the connectivity front, the tablet supports 3G, WiFi, GPRS, GPS and Bluetooth. It comes with a 2-megapixel camera at the back and a 0.3 megapixel front-facing camera. The device packs a 3,500mAh battery. Snapdeal is offering the tablet through EMI mode.

In March, the company has rolled out a 5-inch display smartphone, dubbed A119 Signature HD, in India for ₹13,499.

India is also expecting the launch of Asus 3G, 7-inch FonePad on Wednesday. The FonePad which made its debut at Mobile World Congress in February sports a 7-inch WXGA LED Backlight IPS panel with 1280x800 pixel resolution and runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system a powered by Intel Atom Z2420 processor. The price of the device is still under wraps.
