1.Aakash is first in a series of Android-based tablet computers produced
 by British company DataWind.
2. It is manufactured by the India-based 
company Quad, at a new production centre in Hyderabad,
3. with a planned trial run of 100,000 units.
4. The tablet was officially launched as the 
Aakash in New Delhi on 5 October 2011. The Indian Ministry of Human Resource
 Development announced an upgraded second-generation model called Aakash 2 in
 April 2012.

5.The Aakash is a low-cost tablet computer with a 7-inch touch screen, ARM 11
 processor and 256 MB RAM
6. running under the Android 2.2 operating system.
 It has two universal serial bus (USB) ports[4] and delivers high definition 
(HD) quality video.[6] For applications, the Aakash will have access to Getjar,
, an independent market, rather than the Android Market.
7.The device was developed as part of the country's aim to link 25,000 
colleges and 400 universities in an e-learning program
8. Originally projected as a 
"$35 laptop"
9. the device will be sold to the Government of India and distributed to university students – initially at US$50[4] until further orders are received and projected eventually to achieve the target $35 price. A commercial version of Aakash is currently marketed as UbiSlate 7+[10] at a price of $60.[11] The Aakash 2, codenamed UbiSlate 7Ci, was released on 11 November 2012[12] and has a configuration that is an improvement over previous versions. The tablet will be sold to MHRD at a cost of Rs.2263
 and subsidised to Rs.1130 for students.


1.The aspiration to create a "Made in India" computer was first reflected 
in a prototype "Simputer" that was produced in small numbers. 
2.Bangalore based CPSU, Bharat Electronics Ltd manufactured around 5,000 Simputers 
for Indian customers from 2002–07. 
3.In 2011, Kapil Sibal announced an anticipated low-cost computing device to compete with the One Laptop
 per Child (OLPC) initiative, though intended for urban college students
 rather than the OLPC's rural, underprivileged students.
4.A year later, the MHRD announced that the low-cost computer would be 
launched in six weeks. Nine weeks later, the MHRD showcased a tablet 
named "Aakash", not nearly what had been projected and at US$60 rather
 than the projected $35.
5. "NDTV" reported that the new low-cost tablet was
 considerably less able than the previously shown prototype and was going 
to cost about twice as much.
6.While it was once projected as a laptop computer, the design has evolved 
into a tablet computer.
7. At the inauguration of the national Mission on 
Education Programme organised by the Union HRD Ministry in 2009, joint 
secretary N. K. Sinha had said that the computing device is 10 inches 
(which is around 25.5 cm) long and 5 inches (12.5 cm) wide and priced at
 around $30.
8.India's Minister of Human Resource Development, Kapil Sibal, unveiled a
 prototype on 22 July 2010, which was later given out to 500 college students
 to collect feedback.
9. The price of the device exhibited was projected at
 $35, eventually to drop to $20 and ultimately to $10. After the 
device was unveiled, OLPC chairman Nicholas Negroponte offered full access to 
OLPC technology at no cost to the Indian team.[21]
The tablet was shown on the television program "Gadget Guru" aired on NDTV in August 2010,[22] when it was shown to have 256 MB RAM and 2 GB of internal flash-memory storage and demonstrated running the Android operating system featuring video playback, internal Wi-Fi and cellular data via an external 3G modem.[23]
Aakash 2 is allegedly made in China.[24] Datawind alleges it bought DIY kits from China, assembled them, and sold them to Indian Government HRD.[25] Chinese manufacturers allege that, they sold "ready-to-use" tablets to Datawind.[26] + The device was developed as part of the country's aim to link 25,000 colleges and 400 universities in an e-learning program.[8] Originally projected as a "$35 laptop",[9] the device was planned to be sold to the Government of India and distributed to university students – initially at US$50[4] until further orders are received and projected eventually to achieve the target $35 price.

A commercial version was eventually released online as the UbiSlate7C1 tablet PC at Rs. 4,199 (US$ 76.42) and the Ubislate7C+ tablet PC at Rs. 5,199 (US$ 94.62)[11][27] on 11 November 2012[12] with plans to offer it at a subsidized cost for students of Rs. 1,130 (US$ 20.57).[13] As of February 2012, Datawind had over 1,400,000 pre-orders, but had only shipped 10,000 units – 0.7% of orders.[28] As of November 2012, many customers who put in orders still had not received their computers and were offered refunds

As released on 5 October 2011, the Aakash features an overall size of 190.5 x 118.5 x 15.7 mm with a 180 millimetres (7.1 in) resistive touchscreen,[30] a weight of 350 grams (12 oz) and using the Android 2.2 operating system with access to the proprietary marketplace Getjar (not the Android Market)
, developed by DataWind.
The processor runs at 366 MHz; there is a graphics accelerator and HD 
video coprocessor. The tablet has 256 MB RAM, a micro SD slot with 
a 2 GB Micro SD card (expandable to 32 GB), two USB ports, a 3.5 mm
 audio output and input jack, a 2100 mAh battery, Wi-fi capability, 
a browser developed by DataWind, and an internal cellular and Subscriber
 Identity Module (SIM) modem. Power consumption is 2 watts, and there is 
a solar charging option.
The Aakash is designed to support various document 
(PNG, JPG, BMP and GIF), audio (MP3, AAC, AC3, WAV, WMA) 
and video (MPEG2, MPEG4, AVI, FLV) file formats and includes 
an application for access to YouTube video content
