Tablets have increasingly taken over the tech market in the past few years. At one side there are so many variants trying to beat each other with the latest technology, and on the other side there’s HCL. While other tablets are running on dual core or quad core processors, HCL has changed the game with their single-core tablets with calling features.
At unbelievable prices starting from just Rs. 4,000, these are budget devices that have become the talk of the town. Take a look at this list ofand you’ll definitely be amazed with the features they offer at extremely affordable prices.
HCL ME U2: 7 inch screen with 800 X 480 pixels resolution makes for a decent display. The device has multi-touch capacitive screen, powered by 1 GHz cortex A8 CPU with GC430 GPU and runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The battery life is quite impressive at 3100 mAh and the device also has 4 GB internal memory which can be expanded to up to 32 GB with a MicroSD card. The tablet supports 2G calls and has a decent front facing camera but no rear camera which might become a problem for some.
However, at a price of less than Rs. 5,000, it’s a deal of a lifetime!

HCL ME V1 (2G): Another device which is a slightly better version of HCL ME U2 is HCL ME V1. This device has the same features with a few upgrades.

HCL ME Y3: A dual SIM tablet with 3G connectivity, this gadget is one step ahead of all the previously discussed devices.

Other than that it’s a very good tablet with a massive 9.7 inch LCD IPS display and powered by ARM Cortex A9 1.2 GHz Dual Core Processor. 4G and 3G connectivity is enabled on this device along with all the other features offered by its sibling products.
