Govt is proposing to set up manufacturing plants for the tablet in India too.
According to Indian Express, the Department of Information Technology has written to the Department of Science & Technology asking whether the Aakash tablet project could be routed through them.
Reports also added that the Union HRD minister, Kapil Sibal has also written to the Prime Minister proposing a manufacturing unit for the new version of the Aakash tablet in view of the problems faced by the first Aakash tablet manufactured by Datawind.
"The draft of the specifications has been prepared, formally it has to be placed before a committee... We are waiting for a suitable date to do that," Department of Electronics and IT (DEITy) Secretary J Satyanarayana was quoted as saying by PTI.
"We should not add so many features so that the cost will go beyond," he further added.
It is to be noted that the Datawind has so far launched three versions of Aakas tablet, meant for students. All the three tablets are being sold in the market under the brand name of UbiSlate (UbiSlate 7Ci, UbiSlate7C+ etc). However, all the tablets were hammered by the experts and users alike for poor quality. The problem was further compounded by issues of non-supply by Datawind. Moreover, many Indian and Chinese brands have recently launched their tablets in the market at around the same priced as the Aakash tablet but with better specification.
Hence, the upcoming tablet is most likely to have some decent features but considering the fact that it is meant for students, the tablet would definitely have ordinary features as indicated by J Satyanarayana.
