Aakash 2 UbiSlate 7 Plus Price and Availability in India
The original Aakash Tablet made a sensational debut in India aided by its lowest price tag for a tablet anywhere in the world, but it failed to rise up to the expectations of the student community. Based on the initial inputs from a pilot study on original Aakash tablet by IIT Rajasthan students, Datawind has brought the much improvised second generation Aakash 2 also called as UbiSlate 7+. This version is priced at Rs. 2999/- in India and has a better 700 MHz Cortex A8 processor which is capable to handle multiple operations at a time. Aakash 2 also has a more powerful 3200 mAh battery for long battery life, Android 2.3 (in place of Android 2.2 in the old version) and Wi-Fi & GPRS (SIM & Phone functionality) instead of only Wi-Fi in original Aakash. Complete specifications can be found at Aakash 2 Update.Please scroll down to read further.
The tablet boasts of DataWind’s UbiSurfer browser, which accelerates web pages loading by factors of 10x to 30x which adds speed to your browsing experience. Aakash 2 or UbiSlate 7 Plus is now available for pre-booking at Datawind site www.ubislate.com January and February slots are sold out and Aakash 2 is now available only for March 2012. Let us hope for the best and that this new offering will satiate students’ desires for a low cost Tablet with a reasonably good user experience
