A 4G version of Aakash, hailed as the cheapest tablet of the world, will soon be unveiled. Suneet Singh Tulli, chief executive officer of Datawind, which makes the tablet, said to Business Standard.
Regarding Aakash tablet Tulli had earlier said to The Mobile Indian “The commercial version of Aakash tablet will have a 600 MHz processor and we are also working on a 1.2 GHz processor for the version after that .”
The commercial version will be more expensive than the student version but will still be the cheapest Android tablet, at Rs 3,000. The tablet also includes direct support for GPRS while the current version only supports WiFi (and one needs a dongle for 3G).
Suneet Tulli told The Mobile Indian that the “commercial version will be called UBISlate and will be sold with a one year warranty”.
The only fear we have is that the tablet should not go the Tata Nano way, which though it received much publicity for being the cheapest car, was not commercially very successful.
