Ultimately after a long delay, Ubislate 7 (Aakash or Sakshat) Tablet – The lowest price Tablet PC has been launched to the public.
It was announced in 2010 with the Price tag of $35, and was supposed to hit the market by January 2011. Unfortunately Project got delayed due to several reasons like testing and all, but it’s here now. The public version of Aakash is now available for purchase.
Akash Tablet is jointly developed by the London based company DataWind and Students of IIT-Rajasthan, and manufactured by an India based company Quad at its Hyderabad production center. The older version of Aakash Tablet was suffering from bugs like overheating (within 30 minutes), lack of support for all formats, poor sound quality etc. So Datawind launched an upgraded version of Akash Tablet by the name Ubislate 7.
