Top of the line tablet with Sim Card for only Rs.2200…fraud?


The tablet prices are tumbling… Literally every second week, we hear a new cheap / budget tablet is launched with price tag ranging from Rs. 4k to Rs. 8k.

Currently, the cheapest tablet in the market – Ubislate (the commercial version of Aakash) – has set the benchmark for lowest price tag on a tablet with a pricing of approx. Rs. 2999/-. However, with that kind of pricing, Ubislate comes with not so flattering specs, namely a CPU being around 800 mHz, lowly 256 mb ram, a resistive touch screen and 3000 mAH battery.

Today I came across a tablet which really surprised me.

A tablet called Angelpad, which boasts of top-of-the-line specs like 1.5 GHz processor, 7 inch capacitive display, 1GB DDR3 Ram, multi-touch screen, 32 GB space, Bluetooth 4.0 has been priced at only USD 40. At current rupee conversion rate, that translates to only about Rs. 2200. The most surprising aspect of this tablet is that it even has a SIM Card facility.

Currently, tablet with similar specs cost in vicinity of Rs. 15 to 20 thousand. Angelpad cost a mere Rs. 2200/-

For me, price of Angel pad is just too good to be true.

Currently it is not being sold in retail and they are accepting only bulk orders.

My personal opinion is that it is a fraud – Getting that kind of price for such high specification is impossible. It is probably just a channel to collect leads of people interested in low cost tablets. The reality might actually be entirely different.

Here is the Angelpad website. Have a look at it and let me know what you think?

  18. TabletWorld India says

    This could be a scam. There is a incomplete address of Shenzhen, China on the website but the domain name of the site is registered in the name of one Richard Perry with a London address and the domain name was registered on 15-May-2012. Anybody ordering on this site must verify authenticity of the company… All tablets currently available in India are listed on our site
