The advantage of T-pad is its processing speed. T-pad lacks the sim card slot, which means you have to relay on WiFi. In India WiFi hot spots are very rare. Any way you can use  USB 2G dongle for GPRS connec tion in T-pad.

Ubislate 7+ got a sim card slot so it is practically a big phone with tab functionality.

You can watch movie, read books and surf internet over wifi on both devices. For Uislate you will have to get a simcard with data package and for T-pad you will have to shell additional money for a usb internet dongle.

So till the time T-pad gets a simcard slot ubislate has the upperhand.

p.s Pantel technologies got two more pads.

  • T-Pad WS704C will have high resolution 7″ capacitive touch screen
  • T-Pad WS802C will have high resolution 8″ capacitive touch screen with intuitive controls priced INR 10999 and INR 13500 respectively
