Datawind has announced the launch of VidyaTab-Punjabi, the first-ever Punjabi education tablet.
For this launch, Datawind has partnered with Vismaad, a developer of educational content in Punjabi.
The tablet is priced Rs.3999/-.
The launch event was marked by the presence of Bardish Chagger, Canadian Minister of Small Business and Tourism and current Leader of the Government in the House of Commons.
