BSNL has launched 3 new android based tablets. The first 7 inch model is priced at Rs. 3,250, the second 7 inch model is priced at Rs. 10,999 and the third 8 inch model is priced at Rs. 13,500.
This low cost BSNL tablet for a price of Rs. 3,250 is just like an Aakash Tablet. There is a huge market for low cost tablets in India, provided the manufacturers get it right. These tablets are manufactured by Pantel, a Noida based company. BSNL will be selling these tablet coupled with their data plans at discounted rates. BSNL has also come up with a special launch offer wherein you play Rs. 3,499 for the 7 inch affordable tablet and get BSNL 2G SIM free along with free 3 months of download.
The 2G SIM comes bundled with the tablet but you cannot use it with the low cost tablet as it does not support SIM card, you can use Wi-Fi to surf or probably connect the handset with the USB and access the net from your mobile (I am not sure about this). But the idea is if customer uses the Penta 2G Data plan for 12 month they can recover the tablet cost.
