No it is not possible to make normal phone calls with the 8.9"; there is no functioning dialler application although it is possible to send text messages. However, note that one is able to make phone calls via an app e.g. Skype but that will require Skype credit and a mobile data allowance i.e. one is using the internet to make the connection.

Hi Alison,

This device has a front and rear camera, though whether video calling through 3G is allowed will be dependent on your network provider. You may also be able to download third party applications via the Play Store that will allow this function

No, there is no dialler application allowing the 8.9 to work as a mobile phone. This question has been asked many times on various developer forums and there is presently no solution; it also doesn't look like there will be one.

If it's a P7300 then it should be a 3G version; the 7310 is the Wi-Fi only version; the more obvious way to tell is that the 3G version has a SIM card slot.

If you have the 3g version of this device, a sim card will allow you to access the internet on the move. Please ensure you have a data plan, as mobile internet can be very expensive.

The 3G version can send SMS but can not make phone calls; independent developers appear to have been able to enable phone calls with the Ice Cream Sandwich version of Android.

The package does include a set of earphones.
