P. Krishnakumar, Executive Director & General Manager, Consumer & Small Business, Dell India, said,
Dell is focusing strongly on the tablet segment in India. With voice enablement, we are confident of capturing a sizable part of the highly segmented tablet market. The addition of voice calling comes as a result of customer feedback that highlighted how increasingly consumers feel the need to converge their mobile technology needs into a single device. Backed by Dell’s strong distribution network and the latest addition of the mobile specialty retail (MSR) network, our consumers will be able to experience and buy this product quite easily.
At this price tag and specs it will compete with Nexus 7 (2013), Huawei X1, Digiflip Pro XT911, and Lenovo Yoga 8.
