BSNL has launched three tablets priced almost at Rs. 3,499, Rs. 10,999 and Rs. 13,500 which is a clear rival to Rs. 2,500-priced Akash tablet. Akash, which claimed to be the cheapest tablet of the world, no doubt appeared in the headlines, but its features did not impress everyone as expected. As a result, the launch of “not-so-expensive” BSNL tablet with far better features than Akash is a mind-blowing effort on the part of the company. Let us have a look at the features of this new tablet and also a comparison of this tablet with Akash.

BSNL Tablet Comparison with Akash Tablet

While this BSNL tablet is the cheapest, the difference between this one and other two is that of 7-inch and 8-inch screen as well as memory apart from, obviously, the price! The remarkable competition between BSNL tablet and Akash lies on the basis of price. It is interesting to note that Akash misses out on certain features like front facing camera and a few more. Even if the price of Akash is lower than BSNL tablet, but the additional features of BSNL tablet compensate for it easily.

These BSNL tablets are being designed by a company called Pantel based in Noida, India.
