Expanding its leadership in the low cost internet connectivity and web access devices segment, DataWind, maker of UbiSlate Tablets, DroidSurfer Netbooks and PocketSurfer Smartphones have entered the 4G tablet market with the new range of premium yet affordable devices under the MoreGmax brand.
The Company introduced its first tablet under the moreGmax brand 4G7 priced at INR 5, 999.
Commenting on the launch Suneet Singh Tuli, President & CEO, DataWind stated “With a goal to connect and empower the forgotten billions, we are dedicated to drive 4G implementation in India. As the leading player in the tablet category, we want to offer incredible top-end specifications technology to all at an affordable price. Like its predecessors, this tablet offers the right mix of features and on-the-go connectivity. Our 7 inch 4G marvel is the first in its class, beating existing products in the market by more than a 20% margin”
The affordable 4G Tablet moreGmax 4G7 integrates a 7 inch multi-touch projective capacitive screen display with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels, featuring a 0.3 MP front facing camera and a 3 MP rear camera with the Android 5.1 operating System running on a Quad Core Cortex A7 processor, has 1GB RAM and 8GB flash memory. In addition, the tablet offers upto 32GB of expandable memory with features like Wi-fi Hotspot, Wi-fi Direct, Bluetooth and GPS.
Tuli said “The majority of the population in India still is not connected to the Internet. Affordable devices, alone, cannot help the masses to be connected. We need to provide something on the connectivity front as well to bring mobile Internet to the masses. All DataWind devices come bundled with the infinite power of the internet, at no additional cost on the Reliance Communications network.”
In addition to regular voice calling functionality, the tablet incorporates DataWind’s Internet-delivery platform covered by 18 U.S. and international patents allowing the devices to deliver a fast mobile web experience on regular EDGE/3G/4G LTE based networks. This reduces bandwidth consumption by up to 97%, allowing the delivery of web pages across even congested 2G networks in 5 to 7 seconds – with even faster speeds on 4G networks.
Tuli Further added “With the launch of our first 4G tablet we strive to provide our customers blazing high speed of internet at minimal cost. We are also planning to launch additional 4G products at incredible prices shortly.”
