Flipkart teases tablet launch for June 26th

“Flipkart teases the launch of tablets on June 26th”

It looks like reports about Flipkart’s foray into the tablet segment were true after all. The online retail giant has sent out an invite for a press event on June 26th, where it’s likely to introduce its first tablets under the DigiFlip brand. The cryptic launch event invite is a glass vial filled with pills, possibly signifying tablets.

Details regarding the DigiFlip tablets are scarce at the moment. Previous reports suggest that the retailer has tied up with MediaTek to power its tablet, which should help the company to keep prices affordable. It’s also safe to assume that the slates will be running Android.

The Indian tablet market is flooded by quite a few affordable offerings, most of them from domestic brands. Flipkart is also expected to launch its devices in the budget category, most likely below Rs 10,000.
