The announcement has been made by the Telecom Minister Kapil Sibbal. According to the Telecom Minister, the tablet will be available at a price of Rs.1500. Several new features have been added to the new Aaksh 2 tablet. Let's find out more about it in detail.

Akash tablet

The new version of the low cost tablet will be available from 11 Nov, 2012. The announcement is made by the Telecom Minister Kapil Sibbal at Economic Editors' Conference on Monday. On the launch event, 20,000 students will get an opportunity to have this tablet as stated by the Telecom Minister. There is a plan to manufacture 5 million Aakash tablets to help the students across the country in their studies.

The previous version of Aakash tablet was not up to the mark. But, at this price tag, it is a device that can be purchased without thinking much about it features. It will allow you to use the internet and all other features provided by any other tablet at a very low cost. The only drawback is that it is not as powerful and capable as the other tablets available in the market. The main reason for it is that it is basically created to help the students in their studies. So, if we think from a students point of view, it is a nice device for Rs.1500.

Price of the new Akash tablet

The exact price of the device will be known to everyone on its launch. However, the Telecom Minister has stated that the price of the tablet will come down to around $35 which is around Rs.1500

Features of new Aakash tablet

The full features of the tablet are not yet known. However, some of the key specifications are given below :

Whether you should buy an Aakash tablet or not?

Well, the answer depends on your work. If you are a student who needs internet enabled device to research on his subject, then Aakash is a good choice for you. You can research about your projects and practicals on the internet. Also, you can chat with your friends and teachers while not in school to get live help on your subject topics. It will definitely help you a lot in your studies. Also, it is available for just Rs.1500 which is not a big amount for parents to spend on their children.

If you are an IT professional or an employee who constantly needs a smart device to do his job anywhere and anytime, then Aakash tablet is not meant for you. There are a lot of other smart devices which will help you a lot to do your job while you are away from your office. For official work, you need something that is more capable and more reliable. You need a device that can run many file formats and can support various business functions and features.

In short, Aakash tablet is for general internet users and not for professionals. Also it is not a device that you can flaunt in front of your friends. It is meant for students and general use only.

Is Aakash tablet better than other tablets in the market?

There are a lot of powerful tablets available in the market like Apple I Pad, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Acer Iconia, etc. However, you can't compare Aakash tablet with the tablets available in the market. All the other tablets are manufactured for commercial purpose. They have a lot of cool features that attracts a person to buy that device. On the other hand, the Aakash tablet was launched with a motto to help the children across India in their studies. The purpose of Aakash tablet and other commercial tablets is completely different. So, we cannot compare the Aakash tablet with other tablets.
