Does the price of Aakash comprimise its quality?

Although the product is of low cost,there are some critisisms regarding the quality of the product.

  • The touchscreen in Aakash uses resistive technology,not considered as good as capacitive.
  • Tablet is pre-loaded with Office Productivity suite and it cannot download apps from Android MarketPlace.
  • Only 3 hours of battery life.
  • Low processing speed.


The future

In future,we can expect 9 inch and 10 inch Android tablets from DataWind with capacitive touchscreens,and in low costs below Rs 5000.Also, a new release with improved memory size and processor speed is expected.Also,DataWind has planned for decreasing the price again if more orders are placed.So,lets hope for furthur technology developments with the best specifications and features and in low costs.Thanks to DataWind!..
