The next version of so called cheapest tablet is ready for Indian market. It is coming with a new name “UbiSlate 7” which will cost $57 ( Around $10 costlier than Akash). The new version of Datawind tablet will have some better specs.
As per ubislate website :
The device includes WiFi connectivity and support for optional 3G modems. Two full-sized USB ports are integrated into the unit allowing pen-drives, external keyboards, web-cams, dongles and other inexpensive peripherals to be attached. “Pen drives are a common medium for storing and sharing content in India. They are even used by people that are not computer savvy, for access to music and videos. A full sized USB ports allowing regular pen-drives to be plugged-in is also available as an added advantage over other Tablets.
It seems that Ubislate 7 is far better comparing with Akash. One should wait for Ubislate 7 rather buying Akash in hurry. One can preorder Ubislate7
