Over the years, tablets have garnered massive popularity in the global tech market. Incredibly diverse in terms of features, these devices come in a variety of display sizes as well. In this regard, an 8-inch tablet strikes a perfect balance between portability and usability. On the other hand, a tablet larger than this size tends to be heavy and bulky. Moreover, tabs smaller than 8-inch can be too small and cramped and are essentially a phablet.
When it comes to their cost, these devices usually have a price tag of Rs.9,500 to Rs.17,000. The best 8-inch tablets are manufactured by brands like Lenovo, Samsung, Honor, Panasonic, LAVA, iBall, Wishtel, and Huawei. Alternatively, you can also go for an Apple iPad Mini, which has a 7.9-inch (approximately 8-inch) display. Tablets by Apple can cost you anywhere between Rs.35,000 and Rs.1.8 lakh.
However, if the cost of purchasing these gadgets worries you, you need not fret anymore. You can now buy a tablet without paying anything upfront. For this, use the Bajaj Finserv EMI Network Card and divide the cost of your purchase into convenient monthly installments or No Cost EMIs. This card comes with a pre-approved limit of up to Rs.4 lakh. You can choose a repayment tenure between 3 and 24 months.
