Aakash tablet - $60 (Rs 3000)

      There has been a revolution in the field of tablet PC with the arrival of Aakash tablets. It is one of the cheapest tablet available in the market. Commercial version of Aakash comes with a number of other features including support to GPRS, Wi-Fi, 3G and SIM facility. It allows faster data access and use of the tablet as a smart phone to make and receive calls. This would definitely go down as a big advantage of Aakash tablet.

 It comes with the Andoid 2.2 Froyo with over 15k pre-installed apps.
 It supports a number of file formats for images, audio and video.
 Cheapest tablet available.


 It can't access Android marketplace to download new apps and games.
 Resisitve touchscreen It heats up quickly.
 2100 mAh battery of the tablet isn't powerful enough to provide good power.
 Non-availability of inbuilt camera however external webcam can be connected to USB.
 It face problems in running heavier apps, multitasking is also a problem.
 Non-availability of customer care centers.
       This tablet has a lot of demerits than merits. But one should consider the price tag also. This is really a good tablet considering its price. No other tablet offers you this much features in this price. Value for money is quite high. But if you can wait then I recommend you to wait for the all new version of Aakash tablet. It will be having more advanced specs, good battery backup and new features too and the interesting fact is that it will be having the same price!
