Pre order price is
9,999/ (this has been removed from the site now) and the introductory price is Rs. 14,999. Shipping starts July 1st 30th and the target audience apart from consumers will be the educational institutions.

Infibeam is driving the digital revolution and expect action from other players in the coming days – a tablet PC at an affordable price [check iPad’s price in India] is the need of the hour and look forward to our review of the toy.
