    What makes Aakash different ?

    There can be many opinions about Aakash tablet , but it is worth remembering that ,

     At its price-point , Aakash is the only tablet capable of bridging the digital divide between the urban and the rural India

     It will be used by persons who have not even seen a smart phone or a computer – much less used these

     Aakash is its own benchmark. Much like Walkman and iPod , it has created a new category – hence there can be no comparisons

     More than 2 million orders are a proof that , it is a product which millions have been waiting for

    No doubt there will be some initial hiccups – as with any innovation

    With regards

    It is perfect for study puspore and cheap on pockets. I don’t want to harass my parents for a costly tablet and the best about it is that we students can afford it ourselves. As long as I can access net for study related puspore and read e books on it, I am happy
