Aakash (tablet) $35 Indian Government Tablet

The Aakash is an Android tablet computer jointly developed by the London-based company DataWind[1] with the Indian Institute of Technology Rajasthan and manufactured by the India-based company Quad, at a new production centre in Hyderabad[2] — under a trial run of 100,000 units.[3] The tablet was officially launched as the Aakash in New Delhi on Oct 5, 2011. A substantially revised second generation model is projected for manufacture beginning in early 2012.[4]
The seven-inch touch screen tablet features 256 megabytes of RAM, uses an ARM 11 processor[5] with the Android 2.2 operating system, has two USB port[3] and delivers HD-quality video.[5] For applications, the Aakash will have access to Getjar, a proprietary market, rather than the Android Market.[6]
As a multi-media platform, the Aakash project, beset by delays and setbacks,[3] has been developed as part of the country's aim to link 25,000 colleges and 400 universities in an e-learning program.[7] Original projected as a "$35 laptop",[8] the device will be sold to the Government of India at $50[9] and will be distributed at a government subsidized price of $35. A commercial version will be marketed as the UbiSlate 7[10] at a projected price of $60.
