Yes akash 1 is get flopped indirectly because akash 2 have more attractive and acceptable options,features and also it has camera and have 1GHz processor so it is better comparing akash 1 and akash 2 cost more than akash 1.

No, akash tablet 2 was never launched and akash 1 was a huge flop with its poor performance and processor speed. the heating of the phone after continuous use of 10 min adds to the worry. The tab never performed to the expectations. The look, design looked awful. The composition of the switches placed in the phone and placing of the slots adds to the worry. Thus AKASH Tab was the flop of this century. Still it did help some poor students in the end. Lucky for them...............

This news might disappoint a lot of Aakash tablet enthusiasts. The much hyped tab may now come with enhanced features but it may pinch on your wallet. According to a newspaper report the price of water and shock proof Aakash 2 with four time faster processor and better battery life will cost USD 100 (Rs 4900 approx) double than its inaugural price. Aakash tablet was launched in last October by HRD minister Kapil Sibal. Reportedly, technology companies have told the government that it is impossible to supply a million Aakash 2 tablets at the original cost. Datawind, a Canadian company, had got the order to supply the government one lakh tablets at USD 50. The price hike debate started after Indian Institute of Technology, Rajasthan had specified some test criterions for the tablet and if the government has to follow the criterions than it will not be able to provide the tab in the USD 50 price tag. The specifications given by IIT Rajasthan are that the tablet should function at 20 degree and up to 50 degree Celsius, withstand steep and sudden fall and waterproof. It has specified a 1.2 Gega Hertz (Ghz) microprocessor as against 366 mega hertz (Mhz) in Aakash and 700 RAM megabytes, double of the original. The battery specified can run up to eight hours

But dont worry newly launched bsnl tpad is redy BSNL has launched three tablets including two 7 inch resistive screen based tabs with Android 2.3 operating system while the third tablet comes with an 8 inch capacitive touchscreen. Made by Noida based company - Pantel, the tablets will be sold with discounted data plans from BSNL. The three tablets are priced at Rs 3,250, Rs 10,999 and Rs 13,500. The cheapest model is Panta Tpad IS 701r which is priced at Rs 3,250. Notably, Aakash is priced at just Rs 2500. However, Tpad has better specification than the Datawind's low cost tablet.

akash 1 is a flop as its results are not good. it has only 366 mhz processor which even slower for a phone, but its a tablet so the processor should be fast. akash 2 is on its way to launch. with great processor much better battery and with a bit higher price. but it will be a serious competitor to tabs which are below 16000 rs. today.

The dates on the launch of Akash 2 has not been confirmed yet. As far as the akash 1 is concerned, its not a good enough tab to invest your money in it. Its got a 256 MB ram, 366MHZ processor, Resistive touch screen and and Android 2.2. Its very difficult to run more than one app at a time with this specification. You currently have two options if you are looking for a low end tablet. 1. wait for the new akash 2 with improved specs 2. Get the Ubislate7+ ( tab from the makers of Akash, with better specs) for 3000 Rs. You can pre order it here at http://www.ubislate.com/index.html If you are expecting a tablet that can replace you net book or even your laptop to an extent i would suggest you wait for another month and go for the iBerry Auxus, its gonna be the cheapest Android 4.0 tablet available in India at 10,000 rs with decent configuration like ( i GHZ processor, 1GB ram, 480 x 800 resolution screen).
