Datawind, the inventor of the world’s cheapest tablet computer ‘Aakash’, has invited the student community in India to submit their innovative ‘software applications’ for collaboration. This was announced by Suneet Singh Tuli, chief executive officer Datawind in Toronto, Canada today.
Speaking about the prospective collaboration with the students, Suneet Singh Tuli said that the top application providers would have their applications pre-loaded in millions of UbiSlate devices.
“We are announcing the Student App Innovation ‘App ki App’ contest for which we are inviting students to submit their innovative apps to us. The best five applications will get an award of Rs 1 lakh each, apart from getting a share of the advertising revenue from these applications. This would allow these students to start their entrepreneurial journey.â€ said Tuli.
“We have received a great response from students for the UbiSlate tablet, which priced at Rs 2999 would fulfill the dream of a majority of the Indian population to own a computing device and access Internet. I am confident that we will receive innovative ideas from students across India. This initiative will give students an opportunity to be a part of history, as the next billion users join the internet ageâ€, added Tuli.
