Aakash- India’s US$60 Tablet

Posted on October 8, 2011
Category:

While tablet PC’s have finally found its place in the consumer market, their price range may not always be that affordable, especially for those who live in developing countries. With tablet PC’s slowly being eyed as ideal alternatives for textbooks and notebooks in schools and universities, a more cost-effective tablet is required. There have been countries like India that are speeding up efforts to create such affordable tablets. The first one (of what may probably be many) ever to come out in the market from this effort is the Aakash Android Tablet.

The Aakash is actually an Ubislate 7 Tablet from Datawind. It comes with a 366MHz Connextant CPU, 256MB RAM and 2GB of internal storage with a microSD slot for additional storage options. It also comes with a 7 inch 800 x 480 resistive touchscreen display and runs on an Android 2.2 OS. These features may not be that impressive for many device lovers out there, but it does provide the essential needs for those who might need it more like students and even cash-strapped consumers. It even becomes more attractive considering that this tablet will only cost around Rs 2,999. That is around US$60. The Aakash cum Datawind Ubislate 7 Android Tablet is expected to come out in the market by the end of this month.
