Though not as popular as they once were, there is still a market for Android tablets, especially the budget ones. They are sought after by students and educators alike for online education. Here, we have listed the best budget tablets under NPR 30,000 in Nepal. You can even use these tablets for casual multimedia consumption.
Because of the pandemic, Android tablets have become more relevant now. As institutions started adapting to online curriculum, demand for budget tablets has increased. Tablets are cheaper than laptops, and the touch screen interface makes them easier to use. They are obviously not as powerful as laptops but should be adequate for online classes, assignments, and multimedia consumption.
In addition, most users are already familiar with the Android ecosystem. This is one more reason to pick a budget tablet over a laptop. That being said, here is the list of the best budget tablets that you can currently buy in Nepal.
