The Datawind Ubislate 7Ci tablet sells for $40 but can it compete?

by: J. Angelo RacomaOctober 20, 2012
The India-bound Aakash tablet made waves in the technology media for its dream of providing cheap tablets to the educational sector (among others) in this developing market. The tablet also drew flak for its creator's inability to adequately meet demand. But will the cheap tablet trend catch on with the rest of the world?

Datawind unveils four new India-bound UbiSlate tablets, to start at $55 with ICS and 1 GHz CPU

by: AdrianSeptember 17, 2012
The UbiSlate 7Ri, 7R+, 7Ci, and 7C+ are the four newly unveiled slates, all sporting 7-inch screens and all ready to go on sale at unbelievably low prices. Though we don’t have many photos starring the four tabs, these shouldn’t look very different on the outside, and their innards will be similar as well.

India’s Aakash 2 tablet now costs $40, receives hardware upgrade in version 2.0

by: LucianJune 26, 2012

The world’s cheapest tablet computer, as the Indian Government likes to call their Aakash tablet, is about to be upgraded to version 2.0, and will receive a significantly faster processor, clocked at 800 Mhz (up from 366 Mhz), longer battery life, and better “programming capability”. Hopefully that means it will receive Android 4.0, but I wouldn’t bet on it. At best, it’s probably Gingerbread.

The first Aakash tablet wasn’t the success Indian luminaries thought it would be. The UK company making the device, DataWind, was supposed to deliver 100,000 units to the Indian government, but that didn’t happen. A measly 572 devices [...]

An Android tablet at less than $40? Yes, you read that right

by: Danic FilipMarch 27, 2012

Over the years, you’ve probably seen quite a few bargains online or at your local carrier. Remember the great $99 TouchPad firesale? Well, here is an Android tablet that sells for much less than $100, one that is surprisingly good for its declared purpose.

The story will take us to India, a country where hi-tech gadgets are becoming ever so popular, even though hundreds of millions of people have little experience (if any) in using them. That is exactly the problem that the Indian Ministry of Education is trying to tackle. The plan is to introduce Android tablets to schools in rural areas that lack access to modern technology.

Namely, the Indian government [...]

SOLD OUT — Cheapest Tablet in the World

by: Christine TorralbaJanuary 6, 2012

So apparently, our previous post on Velocity Micro speaks highly about the device considering it is a low-end tablet. We just found out there’s another cheaper option for those who just plainly want to own an Android tablet of their own. In fact, the title of the cheapest tablet in the world, now belongs to DataWind—for their creation of the Aakash. Just days after it was launched in India, the sub-$50 tablet sold out.

Originally, the device was developed for Indian college and university students. After declaring sold out on the units, DataWind is taking the tablet a step further to an upgraded version and will no longer be taking online orders for the original [...]
