International network specialist WorldSIM has taken a leap into the tablet market with the launch of its Philco 7” 3G tablet which is available to pre-order from the 1st May 2015.

Designed with travel in mind, the WorldSIM Philco 3G is a seven inch Android tablet that has two front facing speakers and excellent graphics, making it great for watching movies and gaming. The tablet also features a front and back camera with flash to capture all the favourite holiday moments.

According to a recent WorldSIM survey, more than half of those surveyed (52%) admitted they don’t use their phone or tablet when abroad due to rising roaming fees. Thankfully, the Philco 3G also comes with a free pre-loaded Data Roaming SIM so travellers can get online for less practically anywhere in the world, and 3G connectivity means the tablet can make and receive calls for free from most popular destinations, as well as provide a cost effective data connection.

The expandable Micro SD memory slot ensures travellers can view and save files such as music, movies and pictures.

Arif Reza, CEO of WorldSIM said: “The tablet market still has huge growth potential, with IDC reporting an 11% increase in the second quarter of 2014. Unfortunately there is a lack of good quality cost effective options for savvy travellers, which is why we launched the Philco 3G. Available for less than £200 the tablet is designed for people on the move who want to stay entertained and connected to friends and family without the worry of excessive roaming charges.”

The Philco 3G operates on Android 4.1 Jellybean software with a 1gGHz Quad-core processor and comes with 1GB RAM and 8GB ROM.

The WorldSIM Philco tablet is available to pre-order at with an RRP of £199.99, which includes a travel SIM and £20 credit.
