India has joined the race of providing one laptop per child with their first cheap tablet Aakash, but it got very bad remarks because of the slow processor, low storage space, resistive screen and small battery. Now, they revised this tablet and made it much better, keeping the price the same,which is unbelievable $35, or 2999 RS. This tablet has been presold even before coming out, because of the low price and good specifications. The bad thing is that it’s only available in India and for students only. There is a commercial version that comes with a SIM card that’s called Ubislate 7+ and it is sold by the phone operators for a higher price.
The main specs are amazing when you see the price. Firstly, it is a 7 inch tablet with a resistive (800×600) pixel screen. It has a built in ARM CortexA8 700MHz processor that is equal to 1.5 GHz processor, if compared to the predecessor ARM 11. In addition to the main processor it has a GPU. It has 256 MB RAM and 2GB flash memory that is expandable by a SD card up to 32GB. Additionally, it has two full size USB ports on which you can plug in everything from a pen drive, to a 3G modem, or an external keyboard. It has a 3200 mAh battery, instead of the previous 2500 mAh one and it can hold on for three hours intense work. It will work on a standard Android Gingerbread 2.3 with no additional features or tweaks and it will have the option of downloading from the Android market.
With the size of 7.6 inches long, 4.67 wide, 0.62 inches thick and overall weight of 350 gr, it is a firm tablet, capable of even withstanding monsoons and really high temperatures.
So, we say bravo to the Indian government for the support in this project and really making the cheapest tablet on the market.
