    Bharti group firm launches $220 tablet computer in India

    Wed, Aug 17 09:17 AM EDT

    NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Beetel Teletech, part of India's Bharti Enterprises that controls top mobile carrier Bharti Airtel <BRTI.NS>, launched a tablet computer priced at 9,999 rupees ($220) on Wednesday.

    The 7-inch tablet, branded Beetel Magiq, runs on Google's <GOOG.O> Android operating system and supports both 3G and Wi-Fi networks, Beetel said in a statement.

    Beetel is one of the largest makers of fixed-line phones in India. A company spokesman said China's Huawei <HWT.UL> was their manufacturing partner for the tablet.

    India is the world's second-biggest and the fastest-growing market for mobile phones, although computer penetration is still low.

    Apple Inc <AAPL.O> began iPad sales in India in January this year, while Samsung Electronics <005930.KS> launched its Galaxy Tab in India in November last year.

    Bharti Airtel's closest rival, Reliance Communications <RLCM.NS> this month launched a tablet computer priced at 12,999 rupees.
