Shobha Salve, 32, Mumbai based homemaker is on a search to get tablet device that costs less than Rs.10, 000. She basically needs a tablet for browsing cooking based sites. Her husband wished to get an iPad Mini this year, but like good doting wife, she refused that offer, as the device costs Rs. 21,900 in the market. Instead, she now wants a cheaper tablet with loaded features, a decent display, and expandable memory. She also pointed at watching recipe videos on YouTube, while our team was at her place last week.
As usual, GizBot came in to help Mrs. Salve, and suggested top five handpicked dual-core tablets under Rs 10,000. Want to know more....about our recommended tablets. Stay tuned to GizBot.
