However, the consumer can buy only one standard course material for free. As an introductory offer, consumers buying the tablet before 15th April will be able to download an additional standard content.
Sandeep Parasrampuria, director of iBall said, “We’re entering with a motive to complement our education system, not replace it. There is a dearth of quality content in this sector and with increasing number of tablet users, now’s a great time to present iBall Edu-Slide powered by eTeach. Our goal is to make optimum utilisation of the technology enhancements and create an environment where education is made easy and interesting.”
In terms of a 10.1 inch tablet with dual core processor, the tablet is slightly expensive given Micromax Fun Book Pro comes for Rs 10,000 only. However for students who need the content that is being offered with this tablet, its a good bargain.
