BSNL Penta tab PS703C- Android 4.0 at 6749/- INR, full tab specifications

We recently saw the comparison of Penta T-Pad IS701R and world lowest tab Aakash Tablet also the pre-booking procedure for Penta T-Pad IS701R. We got lots of comments regarding the comparison of Aakash tablet and the BSNL Penta 701R tablet. But from recent communication with Mr. Lchandra (who is buyer and user of BSNL Penta T-Pad IS701R) there are many disappointing things with Penta T-Pad IS701R like it don’t have any HDMI port, micro USB and no micro USB to USB connector provided in box, no SIM card slot, no eBook reader, no operating manual in the package and lots of other things which will definitely going to disappoint you. The good news is that BSNL launches a new tab named BSNL Penta Tab PS703C. Price is almost 1.5 times more than the BSNL Penta T-Pad IS701R and twice than the Aakash tablet.


Penta T-PAD 701C Tablet: best alternative to Aakash tablet (Specifications)

  1. Hey…Not sure if Skype Video Call will work. I heard from other reviews like Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system doesn’t support the current version of Skype Video Call.

    • Hi Vinay,

      Thank you for reading. Let me clear your doubts.

      This tablet is not on the customer hand yet and according to the specification given on the official website it dont have bluetooth only Wi Fi. Also I think no sim slot too instead of that internet vai 2G/3G dongle that can be connected externally.

      Wait until any other expert reply here.

    Good battery takes time to charge.
    Using huwaei 1750c modem

  11. I need OS of Penta IS703c softwere if you have please share with me,

  12. Hey i have read /seen many low budget tablets. But most of these tablets chineese and have no proper after sales support. I personally suggest not to buy electronic devices online unless you dont want after sales service. Penta seems to be a good company . I have seen following good thigs about them from their own site.
    1. They have

    ” ISO 9001:2008 (Certification for Quality)
    ISO 14001:2004 (Certification for Environment Management)
    RoHS (Certification of reduction of hazardous substances)
    CE (Certificate of Compliance)
    MAIT (Manufacturers Association for Information Technology)

    having ISO certification looks some what promising

    2. -> almost every state they have service centers. Like more than 500 all around india and many dealers. While other low budget tablets have only dealer ships around states. ( Micromax ,Karbonn also have service centers around the state -> but it is not clear that whether all these service centers contracted for tablets. Most are contracted for mobile only.

    3. 701C ,703C which i have reviewd are very good products.

    in 703C they have play store ,1 GB RAM ,HDMI etc , I could lay Temple Run, Rangind Thunder etc . Only problem is not sure about GPU they have , but i hope most of the games work. I am not a hard core gamer so i didn’t test much. Display is very good ,Very good Speaker volume

    4. Batterry is some what good in comparison to other budget tablets (4AH)

    Good news is now penta tablets are available through retails stores all over india. I brought it from MG road ,Ernakulam.

    • We appreciate your response, 🙂

    • after using this tab what u say..worth buying..or peice of shit??
      hz the wifi and video clarity nall.what formats does it paly??
      does all the 3d/hd games work in it..have u tried??

    • Can anybody share the challenges with Penta 703c, if any. I understand the Dongle issue. But, is rest everthing so cool that no other issues with Penta. Just wanted to be sure before I buy it.

    Kindly help if it has any technical issues or am i missing something.

    I have purchased BSNL 703c t pad 1 month back. After two days of purchasing, I came to know that battery is not working properly and did not give backup for even 1 hour. I contacted at Ahmedabad store from where I purchased. No response from them. I called at Customer care executive at Noida. I told them about my problem, and they said to send it back to noida, they will give me new. I sent there my tab with cross my finger. After sending the Tpad, so many phone calls and finally i got the new Tpad 703c So called “New” after 25 days. When I am starting it, it comes upto Penta screen and no processing further. Very disappointed. What to do next?? God Knows?

    Dear customers We are the BSNL Franchise in Chennai we are dealing Penta Tablet if u interersted to buy penta tablet any model pls call 9444486161 Chennia

  34. Dear All,

    I have bought IS701C last month. It’s 3G was not working. After lot of troubleshooting with technical support and service centres, I had to ship it back to Pantel and they sent me a replacement. 3G still does’nt works. I have used Reliance -ZTE MF190 dongle with Reliance 3G data plan and AIRTEL HUAWEI E1731 (E173Bu-1) dongle with Airtel 3G data plan. Nothing works. Pantel’s website and technical support claims that the tab supports 3G dongles however tablet’s user manual says that it supports only WiFi. Their is no mention of 3G in the user manual. Please help if you can. I really need your help and suggestions.

  35. please send me your replies at

  36. how can i connect a data card in is703c tab iam havin a data card of bsnl with aircel sim

  37. is there any external bluetooth dongle support for is703c tell me plse

  38. Can a Vodafone GSM work in this Tab??

  39. Can u connect bluetooth through the usb?

  40. Dear Tab Users. Most of the Support teams Know just bullshit about the Tablets and only tend to reply what has been already parroted to the. I remember the Docomo Ad featuring Ranvir where any thing when asked to the waiter,he had to say “Puch Ke Batata Hun”. Still there are few people who are users who by sharing their own experience helping out the community.
    Now No More Blah! Blah! just striking the Point
    I Know many people will be astonished and say its just a Hoax but first The proofs are here:
    From my Experience,If you connect any modem and it shows tower in your tablet and Pre defined APN under Mobile networks>APN then it will definately connect in your tab. Only thing is little tweaking with the Settings. So follow the steps and VOILA! you will have your Internet up and running..AMEN!
    I have used BSNL pentatab IS 703 C running Android 4.0.3 and HUAWEI UMG 1831 Huawei E 303C Reliance ZTE MF 190 All Unlocked and with different SIM.
    First Connect your modem then follow.
    1.Go to Settings of your TAB 2.Select More Under Data usage. 3. Select mobile networks 4.tick on data Enabled & also on Data Roaming on Access point names. 6. Click top right corner to create a new apn 7. create APN with following details a)APN- required apn of the corresponding sim (www-vodafone,smartnet/rcomnet-reliance, etc)you can get it by asking ur service provider . b)user-blank/notset c)pasword-blank/not set d)Dial number- *99***1#(**VERY IMPORTANT SET EXACTLY AS GIVEN. NOT ANYTHING ELSE LIKE *99#)
    e)APN Type- default
    f)name-Any name you want .not relevent. g)MCC- it will be there automatically h)MNC- it will be there automatically i)proxy-not set/blank j)port-blank/not set k)Server-Blank/Not Set l)MMSC-Not Set m)MMS proxy-Not Set/blank n)MMS port- Not Set/blank o)Authentication type- none p) APN protocol- IPv4 q)APN enabled -it will be already autoselected r) bearer- unspecified
    click on three dots below on the bottom taskbar and save. your new apn will reflect just select it and VOILA!! your internet will work.
    mail me if you need any help
