As many of my readers know, I’ve been posting a bit lately regarding tablets (see Considering New Gadgets, their Limitations and Operating Systems & Tablets for 2013) because I’m interested in updating my current gen 1 iPad. As I’m reading my daily articles that I read, I came across a new tablet called the UbiSlate 7Ci. Upon doing some research, I found an article from BGR and The Guardian, which states this tablet came about due to an educational program by the Indian government and then started to be commercially released within the UK and US. It’s from a UK firm and it selling at £29.99. Yep, that’s the price! And you can buy in the US. Here’s a bit about it. Note: The Datawind website says they are already sold out in the UK.

From Yahoo Finance, they say the screen is a bit blurry and it isn’t the fastest tablet around, but if you want something to just do the basics then maybe you should check it out. Please see the video from Yahoo Finance as it would not let me post it here.
