Budget tablets are great for beginners who want to start with a cheap, rough and tough device, or for those students who want to use a tablet for just basic needs like internet surfing. Keeping these basic requirements in mind, Datawind has launched a new budget tablet called Datawind 7SC in India. The tablet costs only INR 2,999 (approx. $45) and comes with one year free internet surfing through the UbiSurfer browser.
The free web service is offered by Datawind as a result of its partnerships with Telenor and RCom. The Datawind 7SC tablet will be sold online through Snapdeal. The company claims that the tablet offers the fastest web on EDGE/GPRS network. But you must note that the free web access does not include local downloads or video/audio streaming.
Talking about the hardware, the Datawind 7SC comes with a 7-inch 480×800 display and gets Android 4.4.2 pre-installed. The dual-SIM tablet is powered by a single core MediaTek CPU clocked at 1.3GHz. There’s a meagre 512MB RAM and 4GB inbuilt storage expandable up to 32GB. The tablet supports 2G voice calling and 3G internet via a dongle. A 2400mAh battery keeps the light on, while a basic rear camera offers quick snaps.
You can buy the new Datawind tablet in just a black color. And in case you want the free net browsing, it is applicable only to RCom and Telenor GSM SIM cards.
