A New Rs. 2999 Android Tablet DataWind 7SC Launched On SnapDeal

DataWind is back with its new Android tablet 'DataWind 7SC' as it continues to sail the tide of launching incredibly low-priced devices. Founded in Canada by brothers Suneet and Raja Tuli, the company DataWind shot to fame when it first introduced its revolutionary tablet computer 'Aakash', the device which was quick to win the tag of 'world's cheapest tablet' with its $60 price tag for general public and a jaw-dropping $21 price tag for students. This time around, the company has partnered with e-commerce portal SnapDeal to sell the DataWind 7SC tablet at a price of Rs. 2999. Let's take a look at the tablet's top most features.
Running atop the slightly older version Android 4.4.2 (KitKat) out of the box, the DataWind 7SC tablet is powered by the 1.3 GHz Broadwell MTK8312 Dual Core Cortex A7 processor, which is seen in other DataWind tablets as well.

Packed with 4 GB internal memory and a mere 512 MB RAM, this DataWind tablet features a 7 inch 5-point capacitive screen which has an average resolution of 800 x 480 pixels.

A 2400 mAh battery powers the tablet's engine. The camera on the rear is present, although the company has not mentioned the resolution. There is a 3.5 mm audio jack on the tablet's side and a micro USB port to be used for charging.

On the connectivity front, users get to access WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and GPRS/EDGE networks. The tablet supports Dual SIM cards and there is a microSD card slot, but again the company hasn't mentioned the supported expandable memory limit.

The biggest USP of the device is its free internet browsing plan that lasts for one year from purchase. DataWind has partnered with Reliance Communications (RCom) and Telenor. So, if you get a prepaid Rcom or Telenor SIM card, you can access internet for free via the UbiSurfer browser that comes preloaded on the DataWind 7SC tablet.

Other than that, the makers have promised its users that with a new innovative technology, users can reduce their bandwidth consumption by 10x on a 2G network, while maintaining fast loading web pages.

The only tablets in India that could compete the DataWind tab in pricing are the BSNL Penta ones, however they fail miserably to impress customers with their features.
