MTV and Swipe Telecom have collaborated to introduce the successor to the MTV Volt phablet, called the Volt 1000. Priced at Rs. 11,999, the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean-based MTV Volt 1000 is reportedly available across 10,000 retail points across India, the Swipe e-store and leading online portals like Flipkart, Snapdeal, Infibeam and eBay.
The MTV Volt 1000 features a 6-inch 854×480 pixel 5-point capacitive touchscreen, and is powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor coupled with an upgraded 1GB of RAM. Apart from 4GB of built-in storage (and microSD card support up to 32BG), the Volt 1000 bears an 8MP rear camera, and a 1.3MP front-facing camera.
The dual-SIM Android phablet weighs 186 grams, and like the original Volt, offers a built-in TV player with access to MTV, apart from an FM radio player.
The company has not listed all the specifications of the Volt 1000 yet, and its connectivity options, apart from GPS and Wi-Fi, are not known. Its predecessor however boasted of 2G GSM and 3G UMTS functionality, and we can also safely assume the Volt 1000’s battery to be sized roughly the same as the last generation, at 3200mAh.
