Taking serious note of the criticism of its ultra low-cost Aakash tablet PC, the Indian government has decided to provide the improved version of the device, Aakash 2, to students without any extra charge. The Aakash 2, which is commercially sold as the UbiSlate 7 by DataWind, is said to be three times faster than the original Aakash. It has a faster processor and 50 per cent more battery life. The government has formulated new test criteria in a bid to keep the quality of the device high. Also, the approval of the new Aakash will be based on the feedback of around 600 students of IITs and engineering colleges.
