    India's Aakash 2 tablet now available to students at Rs.1130

    The Aakash 2 price has been declared, and it will been made available to students from all walks of life at a reasonably affordable cost. DataWind has designed, developed and manufactured the device, under the HRD ministry’s National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology, and will be supplying it to students of IIT Bombay.

    Before the gadget was launched, a two-day workshop was conducted by representatives of IIT Bombay for the teaching faculties of various engineering colleges in India. The Mumbai-based institute used the slate, which runs on Android Ice Cream Sandwich, as a platform for developing applications that revolve around 3D-modelling, C++ programming, remote and collaborative training applications, robotic control and live assessment tools.

    As compared to the resistive screen of its predecessor, the latest version of the tablet carries on it a 7-inch multi-touch capacitive display, sporting a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. It is powered by a 1GHz Cortex A8 processor that delivers better performance as compared to the original slate.

    Besides providing an internal memory of 4GB that is expandable up to 32GB using a microSD card, the Aakash 2 also offers 512MB of RAM. The tablet exhibits a front-facing VGA camera for face to face calling and possesses in-built Wi-Fi connectivity, allowing instant Internet access. The battery of this slab allows up to 3 hours of usage on a single charge, the company claims.

    With an ultimate goal to enable all 220 million students across India access to low cost devices, the company intends to supply 100,000 units of the gadget to IIT Bombay, which in turn will distribute them to university, college and engineering students.

    Students can purchase the Aakash 2 at a price of Rs. 1,130. On the other hand, DataWind’s website is selling it commercially in the form of the UbiSlate 7Ci for a higher price. The company looks forward to introducing in the market, many more affordable Internet devices that will be accessible to people hailing from every corner of society.

    Below is a sneak peak at the specifications:

    CPU: 1GHz Cortex A8 processor
    Operating System: Android Ice Cream Sandwich
    Display: 7-inch multi-touch capacitive screen
    Resolution: 800 x 480
    Camera: VGA front-facing camera
    Memory: 4GB flash memory and 512MB RAM
    Network: Wi-Fi b/g/n
    Battery Life: Up to 180 minutes (claimed)

    The battery runs for only 3 hours on one charge. That is somewhat low.
    Has anyone from faadoo engineers tried out Aakash2 ?
    Would like to hear their views and reaction to the new version of Aakash. Whether it is worth considering.
    The main attraction is the low price. Thanks to the govt of India for subsidizing it for students.
