The second version (third in a way) of the low-cost tablet meant for students, which never seems to reach the students, was announced at a press event earlier today. Dubbed as Aakash 2, the tablet will be sold to students across India for a subsidized price of INR 1132.
Aakash 2 features a 1GHz processor, Android 4.0, seven-inch capacitive display and will give four hours of battery backup.
Everyone was excited and pumped up when the Aakash tablet was launched. Dubbed as the cheapest tablet in the world, the Aakash tablet, is manufactured by a UK-based firm, Datawind. Its launch was aimed at equipping a tablet into the hands of every student in India. A Government initiative you can say. When it was launched, it didn’t disappoint. But neither did it satisfy everyone’s wish.
