The world’s cheapest tablet PC, Aakash, will soon be available to the students on rent in their college libraries. The rented Aakash will have preloaded video tutorials on all disciplines including Science, Engineering and many more.
According to the sources, the Ministry of Human Resource Development is offering Aakash tablet at half the price to the state governments. Main goal of this progress is to encourage the state governments to issue Aakash tablets to the college libraries for free, thus the colleges can offer them on rent to the students.
On an anonymous condition, a government official has revealed that the duration of Aakash rental will be finalized by the college authorities. The ultimate target of the government is that the tablet should reach all 220 million college and school students. Until then, the officials are looking for alternate ways for the optimum usage of the tablet.
Since Aakash launch in 2010, the government has dispersed approximately 10,000 devices. The devices are in the test stage and have been offered to the students on a task that they should return the devices after utilizing them for a few months.
The research centre is now functioning on version 2.0 of Aakash tabletn which will include a high speed processor of 800 MHz to 1 GHz and a high capacitive touchscreen similar to the one present in Apple iPad.
Aakash version 2.0 prototype has already been developed and a tender was released inviting vendors for the upcoming version which is likely to be released in the market soon.
