The sale of Android tablets from most of the major manufacturers are going down, but Datawind tablets with ultra low price tag made great sales. Though the devices come with low-power specifications, the large screen phablets are the best devices for media consumption. Now the Canada-based manufacturer launched a new phablet called MoreGMax 3G6 in India. It is priced at just Rs. 5,999 and comes with basic specifications. However, it doesn’t support 4G LTE and can’t be used with Jio 4G SIM. The user can additionally purchase the JioFi Mi-Fi device for Rs. 1,999 to access the Jio 4G services.
