But, where is the connectivity? Broadband costs Rs.900 per month for unlimited connection.
Then what is the use of a cheap tablet computer if the network costs are prohibitive?
When we talk of e-books it is the amazon kindle that comes to mind suddenly. It is slim and its screen is eye-friendly. You can store hundreds of books in kindle if you wish.
See the amazon kindle website.
It is tempting. It has similar looks like other books.
