Indian government gears up to launch fourth-gen Aakash tablet

by Doug Drinkwater

July 4 2013

For all the struggles India has had with its Aakash tablet project, the government is apparently still preparing to launch a fourth-generation slate for local students.

Times of India reports that the entry-level tablet’s specifications are currently being finalized but claims that the government will demand that the model has a 7-inch 800 x 480 resolution display, at least 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage and the Android Jelly Bean OS (presumably Android 4.1).

What is less clear though is whether UK vendor Datawind will continue working on the project. The manufacturer developed the first three versions of the Aakash tablet, but the firm’s relationship with the government has since deteriorated because of missed deadlines and withheld payments.

ZDNet’s Nitin Puri has an extensive breakdown of the history of the Aakash and how the project could fare in future.
