Datawind, the maker of Aakash and UbiSlate 7, the world's cheapest tablets has opposed the IIT test criteria for the Aakash tablet's first version. The test criteria include water resistance that will be done by placing the tablet in the rain water chamber with a supply of 4 inches per hour.
The CEO of Datawind, Sunit Singh Tuli says that the device is quite cheap and it cannot be compared to a device that costs $1000.
IIT's test criteria is based on the military standards and are meant for the rugged products. He added that the company has already communicated this view to the concerned Director of IIT and that he is confident that they will change the proposed criteria soon.
