Datawind has launched its new tablet called the PC 7SC in India. Priced at Rs 2,999, it's the most affordable Android tablet with voice calling support. The company has partnered with Reliance Communications and Telenor to bundle free internet access for a year with the PC 7SC tablet. The band has signed an agreement with Den Snapdeal TV-Shop to sell the slate through the retailer’s 24x7 TV channel.
