“Aakash” Not The Cheapest Tablet in the World


The world’s “cheapest” tablet, dubbed Aakash, was launched today. But, there is one catch. It is not the cheapest tablet in the world. The Aakash is being supplied to the government by Canada-based Datawind at Rs 2276 or about USD 46 per tablet. However, a quick search on the Internet shows that there are cheaper and better tablets available for as low as USD 39.

For instance, a 7″ tablet running Android 2.2 OS, sporting a 800 MHZ Cortex-A8 processor with 256 MB RAM and 2GB Hard drive with a built-in camera and supporting 3G and Wi-Fi is available for USD 39.71.

Compared to that the USD 46 Aakash runs on a 366 MHz processor with 256MB RAM and 2GB of internal memory and doesn’t come with a built-in camera.

Similarly, there are scores of Chinese manufacturers offering tablets running various versions of Android with different processor speeds between USD 40 and USD 50. Compared to them, the Aakash seems a bit underpowered and overpriced.
