Out of tablets you listed, Reliance 3G Tablet is a good option provided he has Reliance GSM coverage in his village. Reliance Tablet will work on 3G speed in its 3G circles and will switch to GPRS in rest of the areas.

Alternatively if the smartphone he is carrying has WiFi Hotspot capability and data pack enabled with his mobile service provider, he can use the mobile for net connectivity for tablet through WiFi. In that case, consider getting this awesome Tablet from US through Shop And Ship. It's a one day deal. You won't get any Tablet in India with these specs at this price.

HTC EVO View Android 4G Tablet at US $ 230 >> Wireless Daily Deal, 1 Sale A Day

It's WiFi + CDMA EVDO but CDMA EVDO won't work on Indian network unless cracked, programmed and officially registered.

Seems a good deal (but 3G is the main thing he wants, not sure about cracked etc).... For some reasons Reliance 3G he did not like, but he has it as one of the more of the feasible solutions.

----------

Well, thats the thing... Nobody known seems to be coming from US (for now).... Also he wants 3G as no Wi-fi at his village ... he doesnt even have internet at his home..
