Ira Thing 2 from WishTel is the newest entry on the Indian tablet scene and seeks to entice buyers with its affordable price tag of just ₹6,500.

It also comes with 512 MB of RAM and internal storage around 4 GB, expandable up to 32 GB. The battery pack with the tablet is rated at 3000 mAh, which the company claims is capable of supporting four hours of browsing time.
A distinct feature of the tablet is its built-in support for 14 Indian languages including Hindi, Marathi, Gujarati, Bengali, Tamil, Kannada, and Malayalam. The tablet will also be available in multiple color options of black, red, yellow, pink, blue, and white.
The Ira Thing 2—weird name for a tablet device, it must be said—is both Wi-Fi and 3G capable and come pre-loaded with e-news and TV apps that provide access to more than 120 TV channels. Then of course the tablet will also serve as an ebook reader as well.
