The third iteration of tablet from BSNL-Pantel is T-Pad WS802C. The presence of operating system in this device is still under doubt as they haven’t mentioned it anywhere on their website. Though the device shows running HP’s WebOS, we don’t think that HP has still open-sourced the codes of their tablet OS fully. While speculations of Android 4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) can’t be denied, we can’t make a statement as of yet.
The WS802C comes with an 8-inch multi-touch capacitive touch-screen with a resolution of 800 x 600 pixels. You can perform the same multi-touch gestures as discussed on the previous post.
This device also comes with built-in SIM card slot and a BSNL 2G SIM card. You can, if you wish to, opt out of BSNL and choose other service providers as well as your convenience.
The WS802C has an ARMv7 1.2GHz processor based on Cortex-A8 architecture. In short, this processor performs better than the previous ARM11 IMAP210 1GHz one. The reason to why this happens lies in the architecture set. The processors based on Cortex-A8 architecture are nearly twice as other processors in executing operations in same number of clock cycles. This phenomenon is named as ‘superscalar’. So, this processor is definitely better than the IMAP210.
There comes a generous 512MB DDR3 RAM in this also. The advantages of having a faster and spacious RAM can’t be denied.
There is an additional 2MP camera at the back of the device to click some quality pictures too with the tablet. The front-facing 0.3MP camera is on its original place like its other cousins.
The internal memory is again 4GB in this device also, which can be expanded with the addition of microSD card.
The device also comes with a full sized USB port and an HDMI port, both of which uses have been discussed earlier.
Bluetooth is again present with version 2.1 with Enhanced Data Rate (EDR), with faster file transfer rates across the devices.
Other things which make up to the list are GPS, WiFi, G-sensor, miniHDMI port, 3.5mm headphone jack and a reset button again.
