Aakash 2 Tablet Performance Review & Features

So another year and new version of low cost Aakash Tablet is launched by Datawind in association with HRD ministry. According to the stories Aakash 2 will have improved feature, performance and enhanced  user experience than its predecessor Aakash.

Previous version of low cost Aakash Tablet was a complete failure, whether it is hanging problem, issue of connectivity, performance - A failure, not up to the mark.
Aakash 2 Tablet Review Performance

As compare to previous version Aakash 2 has 1 GHz cortex A8 processor, while previous version was powered by 366 MHz processor. So we can hope for less hanging issue and somewhat a better performance than previous version.

Upgraded Aakash tablet runs Android 4.0 Operating system, while previous version had Android 2.2 OS. The new Tablet has 512 MB RAM and internal memory of  4 GB (Expandable upto 32 GB) and according to news battery backup is around 4 hours.

Aakash Tablet 2 is available at a subsidized price of  Rs 1130 , for Indian student , and a commercial version  of Aakash-2 branded as UbiSlate 7Ci , is available at Rs 4499 on Datawind's website.

Now the thing is they have upgraded the features, but upgradation is not a guarantee of Quality. Aakash 2 is also facing a problem of " Made in China " controversy, Charges are on Datawind that they bought low cost Chinese Tablet and sold in India as product developed and manufactured in India.Still there is problem with performance and availability. 

Lots of complaints are there that people didn't get there previous version of Aakash till date, whereas they have already paid online.

Key Features Of Aakash 2 :

  • 7" multi-touch Capacitve screen
  • 1 GHz Cortex A8 processor
  • 512 MB RAM
  • Android 4.0.3 OS
  • Camera : Front VGA
  • Network - WiFi & GPRS
  • High Quality video streaming and video playback
  • Audio - 3.5 mm Jack
Overall we can say if you get Aakash 2 at a subsidized price of  Rs 1130, then go for it because having your own Tablet at this price will really be a great experience, but to go for a commercial version at Rs 4499 will be a hard decision.
