First look at $35 tablet ‘Aakash’ from Indian government

Indian government is back again with its mythical $35 Android tablet and you will going to see a whole new tablet today, not the one which was shown last year.

It seems the allegations of last tablet being Chinese and several other factors including problems with manufacturing have led Indian Government to go for a totally new tablet, thus so much delay. The new version $35 tablet is being manufactured by a Canadian company Datawind in a Noida plant.

This tablet will be called Aakash Low Cost Access Device (LCAD) and will be available to students for just INR1200 after subsidies. According to the rumored specifications, it features Android 2.2, 256 MB RAM, a 2GB SD memory card, and 32 GB expandable memory slot and two USB ports.

As the press conference is scheduled for later today, we will be bringing you more details after that. Till then check out these images of Akash tablet.
