Final Verdict:
There is simply no point in buying this as in the same price range with the addition of just 2k bugs you have better tab available in the market in the form of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab which no doubt wins on every single parameter if compared with this one. So, no buy at least from me. The only reason to buy this is if you are getting this one at Rs. 15, 000 or probable free but definitely not more than 20k.

Hold your breath as this tablet with not so many features compared with the Apple iPads or with the well-known Galaxy Tab comes with a sticker price of Rs. 32, 900 which comes with the warranty of standard 1 year and can be purchased from all the leading electronic mega stores and can also be bought from the HCL web stores.

Final Verdict:
This is only suitable for those people who love HCL brand and also for all those who can’t think of a camera whose resolution are not more than 1.3 MP cameras. Valued at Rs. 33k is definitely not worth as the likes of Apple and Samsung Tabs are available at a much lower price than this.
