HCL Launches the ME Connect 2G 2.0; Packs in lots of goodies

HCL has launched its new tablet from its Me range of tablets – the ME Connect 2G 2.0 which is a 7-inch phablet packing in features such as a 1 GHz processor, 1 GB RAM and Android 4.1 – Jelly Bean OS.


HCL is also putting in efforts to make its tablets more lucrative in face of the competition. Although the Me Connect 2G 2.0 is a 2G tablet unlike many others with higher specs available in the market, it is the package that makes it an option worth considering for a budget consumer – it is priced at Rs. 8499/- but packs in ‘goodies’ worth Rs. 4599/-, which are a result of HCL’s tie up with many Indian brands. These include –

1. Unlimited download of full songs & videos from Hungama for 1 month absolutely free, worth Rs. 100

2. Unlimited streaming of movies for the 1st month from BigFix at Rs. 1 only

3. Save Rs.500 per domestic roundtrip flight transaction. Valid for maximum 5 transactions from Cleartrip

5. 10% cash back on first 5 recharges, upto a maximum of Rs 250 cumulative through Paytm.

Besides these, the appeal of the tablet lies in its voice calling ability, which holds appeal for the budget consumer.
