Undoubtedly, India is one of the fastest growing mobile handsets’ market, and low-price Tablets are stepping its presence with dizzying swift day-over-day. Last year, a Canadian based company “Datawind” with incorporation of Indian Government developed a world’s cheapest Tablet “Aakash” for Indian Student for just $47, however, the company is on the way to release its upgrade version “Ubi Slate 7” this year. In addition to this, HCL has also launched three new Tablet in India starting with the price tags of INR 7,999 ($158).  The two Tablets–My Edu Tab K12 and My Edu Tab HE–which have been designed especially for Students. The company has also launched another Tablet named “My Edu Tab U1”  for the mass market at the nominal price of RS 7,999 ($158).

The company has pre-installed education apps and NCERT books for free with memory card (for students up to 12th Standard) in its “My Edu Tab K12” , available for RS 11,499 ($227) in retails. Likewise, the features such as learning apps and multimedia contents which are quite requisited for “Technical college students” and “Professionals” have been pre-installed in the company’s another Tablet, named ‘ My Edu Tab HE’. Besides, both the Tablets will come with the cloud storage privileges.

The specifications provided by the company reveal the similar hardware configurations for all the three Tablets. The Tablets have 7-inch Capacitive screen with 800×480 pixels resolutions and 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor. The foremost important thing is that the Tablets are being powered by Android latest Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) OS. In addition to these, these Tablets have 512 MB RAM, 4GB of internal memory, 0.3 MP front facing camera, USB support, Micro SD card slot, and 3600 mAH battery support.

Indeed, ‘out of box’ users will enjoy the latest HCL Tablets because all these three Tablets are supporting 3G connectivity via USB modems. One thing should be known that HCL is not going to provide any access of Google Play, but it has claimed that “HCL ME App Store” is having more than 10,000 apps. That’s why, the Tablets’ Users should not to be worried anyhow related to the apps. However, the company is providing pre-installed apps such as BookMyShow, Clear Trip, Hungama, Money Control and more with its latest Tablets.

It’s well-known that numbers of Tablets from different manufacturers are available in Indian market like Reliance’s CDMA Tab, Beetal Magiq, Wishtel, iBerry, BSNL ‘Penta701R’ and Government owned ‘Aakash’. These all Tablets are being availed somewhat at the same price with respect to the configuration offered. However, I prefer more to HCL latest Tablets because these Tablets are being powered by Android ICS and support 3G connectivity, besides, there prices are  also up-to-the-mark. Along with, the company’s strategy to pre-install educational package and tools for students and professional is an innovative approach, definitely, it might clinch the attentions of folks to own the devices.
