Aakash Tablet

It’s very ordinary configuration and the tablet looks like very basic device but considering the price tag of Rs. 1400 ( even Rs. 3000), it’s a steal deal. Although it runs on Froyo currently and doesn’t seems to be up-gradable

Aakash will be first distributed among students on India (first 1000 will be free, dunno the process of getting it though). Somewhere in next year one can expect a launch of this tablet to general public at the price tag of Rs 3000.
