iWEBLEAF launches Cheapest 3G Data Card At Rs. 1300

iWEBLEAF launches Cheapest 3G Data Card At Rs. 1300

The latest and cheapest addition launch by iWEBLEAF, as they are selling 3G data card (USB modem) at an unbelievable price tag of Rs. 1300! 

Compared to market’s average price of 3G data card Rs. 2500, iWEBLEAF’s 3G data card which comes at half of that surely will draw attention and trap more users to try high-speed wireless internet services on 3G network. 

Interestingly, this is not another piece of Made-in-China gadget; rather it is made by two

engineer students of Bhubaneswar’s Biju Patnaik University of Technology, Chandrasekhar Panda and Saswat Swain.

iWEBLEAF 3G HSDPA Data Card can offer up to 7.2Mbps download speed (HSDPA) and384kbps upload speed. It also supports 2G network GPRS/EDGE. It comes with genuine IMEI number and a SIM card slot, to use with any GSM operator. 

It also has a micro SD card slot to double the device as 4GB pen drive. Currently it is supporting data/sms/call function with USB 2.0 interface and can be used on any Windows (200/XP/Vista/7) or Mac system. The device will auto install all required drivers and software’s, which includes a mobile TV application which offers 150+ channels, including three Odia channels, including the OTV, ETV and Naxatra TV free of cost without using any TV Tuner or any additional gadgets.

Not only that it can be used as Wi-Fi Hotspot which can support up to 300 computer and 30 mobile phones at a time. All these come with warranty of 18 months.

Though the young innovator duo think that this cheap data cards with Wi-Fi hotspot facility can bring a broadband revolution in villages, I personally feel without any affordable 3G data plan that cannot be achieved.

It should be remembered that Reliance, latest 3G operator in town says there will not be any tariff war on 3G market.

One of the developers of the data card Mr. Saswat told that “We are really excited to bring this service for the common public but we need the intervention of the Government of Orissa, as this project will create direct as well as in direct employment opportunity in the state and towards research & development we need more focus and exposure. If the volume of this product is increased we can drastically reduce the product price to Rs. 900.”

These students have already wrote letters to the President of India, Prime Minister of India, Chief Minister of Odisha and also to the Department of Science of Technology, Odisha but unable to get any positive response from the state government.

Note: It is available in Orissa right now. All they need to bring it to all markets with servicing support.
