In the last week, Kapil Sibal, the Communications Minister of the country presented two units of the upgraded Aakash 2 tablet to the CM of Gujarat, Narendra Modi.
Now, the ministry is reportedly planning to send out the Aakash 2 tablets to the Chief Ministers of all the states. This strange move is an attempt taken by the government to collect the feedback about the low cost tablet.
Aajash tablet is the attempt made by the company in the segment of low cost computing to ensure the students in the country receive quality education.
In a letter to Modi, Sibal has expressed that “Education is a collaborative venture beyond the pale of politics and we need to work together in the best interests of the children of the country.”
Reportedly, the units of the upgraded version of the Aakash tablet that the HRD Ministry had sent over, came back undelivered.
Moreover, there are talks across the country that the tablets were sent to Narendra Modi in order to bribe him. Hence, the ministry is planning to send the tablets to all the CMs in the country and get feedback from them.
It is to be noted that Aakash 2 is all set to be released into the market starting from October 5. Also, manufacturer is delivering 1,500 to 2,000 units of the tablet almost every day to meet the demands.
Talking about the specification of the Aakash 2, the tablet will sport a 7 inch multi-touch capacitive touchscreen display with 800 x 480 pixel resolution, 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, 512MB RAM, 4GB internal storage, front facing VGA camera, Wi-Fi connectivity and 3,000 mAh Li-ion battery. Moreover, Aakash 2 will run on Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich OS.
