The Indian government's ultra low-cost tablet, now known as “Aakash”, has been officially launched today. The Aakash tablet, previously nicknamed as Sakshat, looks different from the prototype flaunted by the telecom minister Kapil Sibal last year. However, the specs of the device are same as previously reported.

The Aakash tablet runs on Android 2.2 Froyo OS and offers Wi-Fi and USB connectivity, 256MB of RAM, 2GB inbuilt storage, and storage expandable up to 32GB via microSD (2GB microSD card bundled).

There are two versions of the device. The Aakash tablet, which is scheduled to hit retail stores next month, will be priced at $60. Check out our previous coverage here.
