As expected, India's popular online retailer Flipkart has today officially launched its first tablet device called the DigiFlip Pro XT712 in the native market at the price of Rs. 9,999. It is being offered in Black and White color variants and the company says that it is the first one in the DigiFlip Pro Series. The tablet will start selling from today itself.
Flipkart is also offering a number of shopping benefits of worth Rs. 5,000 and free eBook worth Rs. 2,000 with the tablet. Moreover, the company is also offering 1 year warranty with the device. The customers will have to shop from Flipkart via company's mobile application from tablet to redeem the offers.
Since this is the first time the online retailer has come up with its own product, most customers might be worrying about the after sales services. However, to sooth them, Flipkart has also mentioned about a "hassle free service assurance," in the press release.
Moreover, Digiflip Pro X1712 buyers will also get a free Bluetooth headset worth Rs 1,199, 50% off on Digiflip book cover, and one month free subscription of Flipkart First service as well.
The advent of the DigiFlip Pro tablet from Flipkart is somewhat a threat to Amazon which has a wide range of similar products as well. However, if specs of the latest product is concerned, its not much like a flagship device.
