DataWind has launched a new tablet in India- the DataWind MoreGMax 3G6. The highlight of this tablet is not its specifications as it comes bundled with free internet offer for 12 months. The MoreGMax 3G6 is priced at Rs. 5,999 and to deliver free data services, the Canada-based company has partnered with RCom. The company just said as free data for one year, there are no details regarding the monthly or daily FUP.
Specifications wise, the MoreGMax 3G6 lacks the essential VoLTE feature, which has become a common affair in smartphones releasing these days. This apparently means that you can’t use a Reliance Jio SIM card in the tablet and that’s a huge letdown. The MoreGMax 3G6 flaunts a 6-inch display, but there is no mentioning of the resolution, though. The tablet is powered by a quad-core chipset with a clock speed of 1.4GHz, clubbed with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of onboard storage. Users can further expand the storage up to 32GB via the microSD card slot.
Speaking at tha launch, Suneet Singh Tuli, President and CEO of DataWind Inc. said: “Today we’ve added a phablet to our lineup with a huge screen that meets the need of people wanting a rich internet experience on their handset. We at DataWind want to cater to the forgotten billion, those that have been left out of the growth and prosperity that India is witnessing. By empowering them with connectivity to billions of pages of the website, we give them the opportunity to take advantage of both educational content and also commerce.”
The MoreGMax 3G6 comes with an 8MP sensor at the rear side of the phone with support for LED flash. Frontal, there’s a 2MP sensor for capturing selfies and video calls. The tablet doesn’t even have support for 4G and includes standard connectivity options such as 3G HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and micro USB port. Also, do make a note that the free data can only be accessible via the preloaded browser application.
The tablet boots Android OS, and there’s no mentioning about the Android version and battery capacity. So, a tablet with entry-level specifications offering one year free data? Huh! Sounds interesting. But, at the same price, we have the Xiaomi Redmi 4A with better specifications, albeit the data offer.
