After partnering up with MTV for Volt smartphone, Swipe Telecom has come up with two new phablet (large screen) phones in India. Swipe Telecom introduces Fablet F2 and Fablet F3 featuring the same size of 5” displays but altogether a different set of specifications.
Swipe Fablet F2 Phone
Certainly phablets are growing in large numbers. Among the top phablets available in the Indian market are Mogu S1 at just $50, IOcean X7, Xolo A1000, Micromax A116 Canvas HD, Byond B66, Karbonn A111, Karbonn S1 Titanium & also check 6-inches phablet phones.
Swipe Telecom adds Fablet F2 to their portfolio of smartphones. It features 5 inches capacitive touchscreen display providing a maximum resolution of 800 x 480 pixels with multi-touch input. Powered with 2.3 Gingerbread version of Android, the Google mobile OS, it’s a disappointing addition when Android 4.0 ICS and 4.1 Jelly Bean is out in the market.
Going further as the article title says, it will includes single core processor clocked at 1 Ghz and includes 256 MB RAM. Good thing is that it includes dual camera with rear side measuring 5 mega pixel with LED flash and front facing VGA camera can be used for video calls. On a sad note, it has only 2G with EDGE technology for internet access, no 3G. However if you find WiFi then you can get better download and upload speed. With dual SIM card slot you can make use of two network operators and save overall on monthly phone budget.
Other specifications of the device includes Bluetooth 2.1, aGPS, micro SD card slot supporting 32 GB of storage and 2200 mAh battery providing 5 hours of talk time.

Swipe Telecom introduced Fablet F2 as Fablet F3 clone in order to lower down the budget but we are sad to learn that it has quite much tailored down specifications.
