Pre-Book low cost tablets from BSNL starting at Rs. 3250, features and price

Now Indian consumers have one more reason to forget running after the Aakash tablet, 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.

BSNL low cost tablet for a price of Rs. 3,250 is clearly an Aakash rival and if this tablet does well it could take a big chunk of the low cost tablet market share. There is a huge market for low cost tablets in India, provided the manufacturers get it right. Despite so much enthusiasm from Indian customers for the Aakash tablets, it failed to live it up to the expectations. The Aakash 2 is now going through a new bidding process which means it will take more time.

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.
