Flipkart is offering the following offers in order to promote the tablet’s sale in India:

  • Discounts worth INR 5000 when shopping on flipkart using the app on the tablet (Conditions apply)
  • Free eBooks worth INR 2300 (The eBooks are pre-selected by flipkart)
  • 20% off on tablet’s book case

The tablet seems like a good alternative to people looking for an affordable stock Android tablet. However, be aware that this tablet comes with Android Jellybean 4.2.2 which is super outdated (introduced in Feb 2013). Furthermore, the discount offers seem to have a big catch and might not be useful for most customers.

ASUS Just Committed Suicide In Geekville [WTF Video]

As part of the advertisement campaign for ASUS Eee Pad Transformer, their new Laptop/Tablet hybrid, ASUS has released this video which looks like a spoof based on the popular geeky show “The Big Bang Theory”. The problem is, the video isn’t funny at all. In fact it’s irritating and torturous at best.

Believe me ASUS, you’ve just committed suicide in geekville.
