Coming on Friday: a ₹ 3,999 tablet from state-run Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Ltd (MTNL) users bundled with the company's third-generation (3G) and WiFi services.
The company is offering 3G tablets provided by Teracom, a telecom equipment manufacturer, for ₹ 3,999, ₹ 6,999 and ₹ 10,999.
'This is a high-end product at the lowest cost,' said AK Bharagava, executive director, wireless services, MTNL.
'The lowest-end model works on WiFi, while others work on both WiFi and 3G.'
The low-end model comes with a high speed 1.2 GHz processor and 4GB memory, compared to the much publicised Akash tablet that has a processor of only 500 MHz.
Teracom tablets work on the latest Android 4.0 Icecream Sandwich operating system, while Akash works on the old Android 2.3 system.
