With the launch of Penta Smart PS501, the very Indian Tablet PC company Pantel, popular for its BSNL Penta variants, is now the newest entrant in the smart phone market. The company is vying for similar, if not better, demand as it was for the BSNL Penta Tabs. With the ever growing smartphone market, it seems like a good move by the company to make the most out of it. Pantel has so far managed a good reputation in the budget category smart product and so we hope to see the same in the future. For now let’s zero on the first smart phone entry under the Penta brand-name.
Of the first look, the smartphone PS501 appears beautiful, crafty and sleek. It is 5-inch screen phone, still ergonomically friendly. There is a protective rim all around which makes it sturdier and it also adds considerably to the phone’s beauty. On the software front Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 can be seen driving the phone as it’s OS. When it comes to hardware, components are good with good ratings. This phone sports a good pair of cameras; rear is 5MP(with flash) and front is a clear VGA. Now the highlight of the phone is it’s dual SIM support feature which narrows the competition for this phone by quite a number.
