Sandeep Dahiya, SVP and Business Head - Consumer Products, Viacom18, commented on the MTV Volt, “MTV Volt is a ‘made to order’ product for the generation that’s constantly communicating, entertaining and socializing. With features that address their needs and price-point that suits their pockets, we’re confident about MTV Volt by Swipe, to generate a great response.” He also said that MTV planned to develop a diverse portfolio of MTV phones and phablets.

The Fablet will be available across 10,000 retail points in India, Swipe e-stores as well as online portals such as Flipkart, Snapdeal, Infibeam, eBay, and more.

In December last year Swipe Telecom launched the Swipe Legend Tab for Rs 11,999. The Swipe Legend Tab entered the Indian tablet market with its tablet with dual-SIM and a dual-core processor. Powered by a 1.5GHz dual core processor, the tablet demonstrates increased efficiency and high performance. The 512MB DDRIII RAM also enables seamless multi-tasking, which allows the user the liberty to access to several programs, applications and high-end games at the same time without letting the tablet’s performance suffer. The company claims that the standout feature of the Legend tablet is its Dual-SIM capability, which allows users to opt for service plans that can optimise their calling and data usage.
