Get Ahead reader Nadeem Taslim writes about 14 low-cost tablet PCs one must check out before buying the likes of iPads, Galaxy Tabs or Xooms.

Nadeem is a tech blogger and runs two technology blogs: techbung.com and aliengang.com.

Tablets are indeed the hottest things in technology. While the Apple iPad and iPad 2 are the big daddies of all tablets, Android tablets are giving tough competition for low prices plus loads of bells and whistles.

In fact, some Android tablets like the Samsung Galaxy Tab, Motorola Xoom and low-cost models like the Reliance Tab are giving serious competition to the iPad.

If you are looking for low-priced tablets available in India that you can use for web browsing, multimedia and applications then you must check these 14 tablets that come under Rs 20,000. (Prices of some tablets may vary a bit depending on various states).
