Priced at Rs 8,499, the product centres around a “gamified” approach to learning where a child engages self through games and learns important concepts through videos, interactive books, stories and worksheets.
“We envision ‘CG Slate’ to be every child’s best friend for learning, entertainment and shopping. In this endeavour, we have partnered with Lenovo and e-tailer Flipkart to ensure a seamless user and purchase experience, respectively,” Jairaj Bhattacharya, Managing Director, ConveGenius Group, told reporters in New Delhi.
