Computer peripherals and tablets player Kobian will be offering a leather case worth Rs. 699 with its tablet Mercury mTab Rio 9.7 inch tablet. mTab Rio 9.7 inch model was to be launched in September 2012, but during the pre-release tests the company found a minor problem with dongle connectivity, and decided to hold back the entire launch, till the problem was sorted out. The leather case offer is a goodwill gesture for the delay in the launch.
"Yes, there is a problem with the delivery schedule of mTab Rio 9.7 inch tablet," said Sushmita Das, country manager, India at Kobian. "All our tablets have been runaway success, and they have been so largely due to the quality we have been consistently delivering at most cost effective prices. This time too there was no reason to launch a product that would not work with certain 3G connections. Since we are late due by couple of weeks, as a special gesture we decided we will offer the tablet's leather case free to our customers who were looking forward to the launch eagerly," added Das.
