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

The 7-inch tablet, branded Beetel Magiq, runs on Google's 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 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 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 this month launched a tablet computer priced at 12,999 rupees.
