In my earlier post, I have informed you all about the low cost tablet ‘Aakash’ . The student low cost version of this tablet is already operational and bookings have been started in the official website of this tablet! DataWind, the Canadian company which is manufacturing this tablet started on-line bookings for this tablet. (Oh! yes, they were hiding the actual ‘ORDER NOW’ option in their home page. Only upon clicking the tablet image, you can get this button) . The direct booking link is: http://www.aakashtablet.com/order-now.html . By checking the options, it is obvious that the bookings are only meant for India. Well, this version is a student’s version of Aakash, will be available for Rs 2,500 and will be delivered in seven days within India.
Don’t worry, the commercial version of Aakash tablet will be powered by Android 2.3 and will have a resistive touchscreen, Cortex A8-700 MHz processor and graphics accelerator HD video processor, 256 MB of RAM and 2 GB of internal memory. “The improved version of Aakash tablet will be available in retail outlets by January end,” a spokesperson of DataWind told The Mobile Indian. The tablet was to be made available in retail stores by the end of November. “The delay in the availability of the tablet has been due to upgradation in the tablet and some unforeseen delay in manufacturing,” the spokesperson said.
The tablet has a lot of accessory options as well. Car chargers and external antennas can be attached to it. A keyboard case can also be used. It has 2 USB ports and can also be used as a phone. The commercial version will also have an option of 3G. External 3G dongle is also supported. Detailed technical details of Aakash and Akash UbiSlate 7 can be obtained by checking the official website at http://www.aakashtablet.com/ .
