I never easily trust companies when they tell me the total cost of ownership of their products and neither should you trust us when we say that it costs less than $0.50 / day when you buy a tablet.
But many companies have started renting out tablets especially to travellers. The latest is that XCom Global has started renting out the Google Nexus 7 at, hold your breadth, only $1 a day. If you don’t believe us, check out their website at http://www.xcomglobal.com. This means it must be costing them less than that, right?

Mr Blynk wishes you a very Happy Diwali :)
It’s festive season, which means more guests, more events, more celebrations. At Blynk, we are always racking our brains to help you personalize your guest experience. The customizations that we built in Blynk iHotel, helps you to do precisely that.
One of the first questions that pops in the mind of hoteliers, when we give demos of Blynk iHotel is, whether the cost of installing tablets has a reasonable ROI.
“Most Innovative Product” Award* Winner, Blynk Systems, today announced the launch of the Android version of their revolutionary Mobile App for Hotels ‘Blynk iHotel’. It’s a Mobile, Tablet and TV based Guest Experience & Marketing App for Hotels. The hotel app developed using this solution now can run on Android based tablets and smartphones as well as the in-room TVs, along with iPads and iPhones.

We have lots of big announcements to make today. The first is that we are excited to launch the much awaited Android version of Blynk iHotel. This means that hotel apps, powered by Blynk iHotel, can now run on Android tablets and phones, iPads, recently launched iPad Minis, iPhones and your existing in-room TVs.
What this means for hotels is that now there is a wide range of devices to chose from. Android tablets are available for as low as $125.
To continue the good news, Blynk is one of the first few companies to launch hotel apps which work on your existing in-room HD TV. This is achieved by installing an Android TV Dongle and a wireless mouse (less than $100 for the pair). Besides your hotel app, Android TV can be setup to run popular apps on the existing TVs. You can give your guests a revolutionary new interactive experience with minimal hardware cost and installation.
This means that the Total Cost of Ownership for Blynk iHotel solution is drastically reduced. Your hotel app can now run on more and more devices.
