  1. No doubt tablet PC have its own advantages and they are the undisputed one of the most needed accessory of the future. It may not be as useful as hyped, as of now. There are a lot of things to be considered before buying a tablet. Not only the hardware and software specifications, but the support of the application they provide. If it is not supporting the stuff you need to do in routing, going for a laptop or a notebook is better choice of course. It is a boon for the students though, who do not need to use any fancy and/or customized apps but need to use books, educational videos, email, flash tutorials etc. The network of the service provider also plays a vital part here. If your Tablet have 3G/Wi-Fi support but the area you are living or visiting regularly doesn’t have it available, the services based on these aspects would be useless for the period of time.

    BSNL is one of the largest telephone networks by all means in India and the three tablets they are associated with are seeing a boom in pre-booking. According to various news sources, so far there are more than one lakh pre-order requests are registered, which includes, phone booking as well as online booking. It will definitely give hard times to Aakash Tablet (if delivered on time), which is actually a mystery so far for the layman. If it will live up-to-the mark with the features it is claimed with, it will definitely change the way of life in India for sure. At least for those who need to use the technology due to various reasons. Let us see how it moves ahead.

    Let us see how it moves ahead.
