The X1 ME Tablet promises to bring great value by re defining on–the-go user experience with its innovative design, display and technology. Today’s consumer doesn’t just look for a product but a complete productivity and service ecosystem around it, which led us to innovations like creating powerful content and local applications which will be backed by our nationwide support service network and 24X7 one touch customer service.”
“As a brand we are aligning ourselves with the consumer’s unmet desire to live the life he wishes for. We want our products to be one of the prime enablers to the life that our consumer aspires for and we are confident that with our expertise in the industry a device like The X1 will unleash innovative models of usage both in the B2B & B2C segments backed by customized applications.” Chitale adds.
