INDIA: $36 Tablet PC, Meet Aakash Tab

The Indian Government has unveiled a prototype of a touchscreen, tablet computer, the Aakash Tablet PC will go on sale for $36. As more data is migrated to the cloud simple web-enabled platforms such as tablet-pc’s will replace the bloated desktop and laptop hardware architectures of today, the future is apparently mobile. The Tablet PC has been launched as the world’s cheapest tablet computer, to be sold to students at the subsidised price of $36 and later in shops for about $61. Most of India’s 1.2 billion people are poor and products such as Apple iPad are beyond the reach even of many in the fast-growing middle class. The government is buying the first units of the lightweight touch-screen device, called Aakash, or “sky” in Hindi, for $51 each from a British company which is assembling the web-enabled devices in India. A pilot run of 100,000 units will be given to students for free, with the first 500 handed out at the launch to a mixed response. Aakash Tab supports video conferencing, has two USB ports and a three-hour battery life but some users said it was slow. India has a reputation for creating affordable products that are easy to use and sturdy enough to handle its rugged environment – from Tata Motors’ $2,000 Nano car to generic versions of pharmaceuticals. Right about now, Apple Inc has to be sat in a corner sweating, wondering what it can cut off iPad, a $600 Tab now sounds far fetched? B★C READ MORE
