The Anil Ambani-led Reliance Communications Tuesday launched its android 3G tablet PC, thus becoming the first 3G operator to venture into the Indian tablet market.

The tablet comes bundled with Reliance 3G services.

"Reliance 3G Tab can be used with any of the 3G voice or data plans available from Reliance," the company said in a statement.

Priced at Rs.12,999, the tablet has a 7-inch capacitive touch screen with android 2.3 operating system and is loaded with 512 MB RAM and a micro SD external storage.

"Reliance Communications has always been a pioneer in taking bold steps to innovate and re-invent the telecom ecosystem in the country. The launch of Reliance 3G Tab is in line with this principle," said Mahesh Prasad, president, Reliance Communications.

"We believe the unmet demand of a fully loaded tablet at an aggressive price point will now fuel the aspirations of the evolved customers," he added.

The device is available in Mumbai, Delhi and Kolkata and will be available in Reliance World and Reliance Mobile stores across the 13 circles in the next few days.

It targets corporate customers with its push mail service and "documents to go" services under which users can conveniently view and work with microsoft excel, word, powerpoint and PDF attachments and the younger generation with features like video streaming.

Other features of the tablet include Mobile TV, voice calling, GPS and video recording.

Reliance Communications is also offering a free 4GB SD card, but customers can upgrade the memory up to 32 GB.
