Best Tablets Under Rs.10,000

by | Jul 2, 2018

Tablets are primarily meant for media consumption on a large screen for those who hate carrying around the bulky laptop around.

In a developing market like India, where most of the people don’t have the capital to invest in a laptop choose the tablet over the former.

As the smartphones got bigger and better, with slim bezels and the new 18:9 aspect ratio, the significance of tablets dropped considerably and the tablet market faces a slump.

Companies stopped introducing new models on the market and opted to strengthen their smartphone lineup.

This best tablet under Rs.10,000 list consists of pretty much-outdated models but is still on sale as there is still a niche market for these products.

We have scoured the interwebs hard for tablets that might pique a interest in you and listed them in this article.
