Aakash Tablet

The launch of the world’s most affordable tablet, the Aakash 2 has been delayed, yet again. This news will come in as a disappointment to those who had pinned their hopes on it, ever since reports confirming a May-end launch first surfaced.
The HRD minister who has been the force behind the nation’s ambitious project, had assured the public that Aakash 2 will be launched in May. Now well into June, and with no sign of the launch, the nation’s vast student community have been left without an answer. So now as it stands, the launch of the Aakash 2 tablet has been delayed and at the moment, at least there is no timeline at hand.Meanwhile, many people confuse Ubislate with Aakash, as it carries the same specifications and is made by the same Datawind. It is giving a bad name to the government’s project as customers of the commercial similar product are complaining of non delivery. Reportedly, after its fall-out with Quad, Datawind got in Hyderabad-based VMC Systems to supply the tablets. Sources say about 50 people have reportedly been poached by VMC Systems from Quad Electronics who were earlier working on the Aakash assembly line. Although the Aakash tablet caught the world’s attention for its affordability tag, its journey so far has been far from smooth.
