Even as we continue to wait for the Indian government's ultra low-cost Aakash tablet, a slew of budget tablets from other manufacturers have arrived in the Indian market. The latest entrant in the budget tablet race is Attitude Daksha from Telmoco Development Labs Pvt. Priced at Rs. 5.399, the Attitude Daksha runs on the latest Android operating system, Ice Cream Sandwich.
The Attitude Daksha tablet has a seven-inch capacitive five-point touchscreen, 1.2GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor and 512 MB DDR3 RAM. The device supports an HDMI port, microSD slot, 3.5 mm audio out, micro USB port and an OTG connector for 3G USB dongle. It also supports 1080p full HD video streaming and has dedicated 400 MHz GPU. It comes with a standard 0.3MP front facing camera and an optional 2MP camera. Daksha is powered by a 4,000 mAh battery, which is rated to deliver a back up of over six-hours with Wi-Fi on. Check out the detailed specifications of the new Daksha tablet in the image below.
The Attitude Daksha, meant for students and educational purposes, is likely to hit the shelves from May 15. Telmoco Development Labs is also planning to bid for the Aakash-2, the upgraded version of the original Aakash tablet. “With government subsidy and mass production, Attitude Daksha could compete with Aakash -2,” said Technopark-Technology Business Incubation Centre secretary and registrar K.C.Chandrasekharan Nair, after launching the product.
Of late we've seen a number of ICS-based budget tablets for the Indian market. Last day, we'd reported Karbonn Mobiles is also going to launch its Android 4.0.3 ICS-based tablet, SmartTab 1. Recently, budget tablets such as the Micromax Funbook, Zync Z990 and HCL ME U1Tab were launched with the latest ICS operating system.
