    Thumbs down Why can't we make phone calls from Tablets (3G enabled)

    You may say I have been living under a rock--I just discovered that none of the Tablets (Apple or even Samsung Galaxy tabs), you can make phone calls even though they have 3G SIM cards for data transfer. Why is this so; what a shlep! Easily connect the devise to a Bluetooth ear-piece, but no it can't I was told.

    So which tablets can we have phone, data and portability of tablet in one?

    You can also enable the iPad 1 to make phone calls. I've done it, works very well. As OMB said, root the HTC flyer and you can make calls from it aswell.

    Don't you think you'd look rather stupid with a big tablet stuck to your face?

    Ok ok you could use a headset I guess.

    Original Galaxy Tab (7') can make calls so "has it all".

    I understand that the Galaxy tab can do it.
    Really?

    that's apple for you

    just another soft-phone app like skype, I think Smiley is looking for the reason as to why a tab can't be used like a normal cellphone

    My Huawei IDEOS S7 Slim CAN make calls. Some tablets only support 3G for data & NOT 2G for voice...
