WorldSIM Targets International Travellers

WorldSIM is a new entrant to the tablet market, producing its first 7″ model using the Android OS.

A survey by WorldSIM shows that the majority (52%) of mobile device owners do not use their smartphone or tablet when abroad, due to roaming fees. The Philco 7″ 3G tablet is supplied with a free Data Roaming SIM card (although any SIM card is supported).

WorldSIM says that the supplied SIM card enables owners to receive free incoming calls in 90 countries worldwide. Making calls, using the internet and sending text messages is up to 85% cheaper.

A low-mid-range device, the Philco features 1024 x 600 resolution. Android 4.1 runs on a 1GHz quad-core processor, with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage.

The Philco tablet is on sale now, for £165 ($260) ex VAT.
