    New Delhi: Public sector telecom operator, BSNL, which recently launched extremely low cost tablets along with two mid range tablets, has got a tremendous response from Indian consumers. The three tablets, bundled with its connection, are in the price range of Rs 3,499 - Rs 12,500. They are manufactured by Noida based Pantel Technologies.

    Virendra Singh, managing director of Pantel Technologies, said to The Mobile Indian, "We have received more than one lakh pre booking orders over phone and online for the three tablets which we have launched in association with BSNL."

    He further added, "Apart from the consumers' interest, we have also got an order for two lakh tablets from Sahara India."

    The tablets will be available in retail stores and BSNL outlets from March 1.
