Both are priced at around Rs 5,000 and have similar specifications but the question is will it be wise to buy the Datawind tablet?
Recently, the Canadian company Datawind announced the new versions of Aakash tablet. While the student version of the new Aakash tablet is called Aakash II, its commercial version is known as UbiSlate 7Ci. Datawind has also announced another variant of Aakash II with SIM calling facility, called UbiSlate 7C+. The UbiSlate 7C+, though, is currently unavailable for purchase but you can pre-book the tablet for Rs 4,999. Datawind promises to deliver the tablet in 6-8 weeks, but before you loosen your purse strings, you should check out the other tablets in the market.
Currently, there are many tablets that can be purchased for Rs 5,000. One such is the Auxus AX01 of iBerry, which is currently selling for about the same price. Here is a comparison of the tablets purely on the basis of their specifications. The real world performance of these devices may vary though. We have already compared the Aakash II with the Karbonn Smart Tab 3, which you can read here.
