India’s ‘Akash’ or ‘Sky Tablet’ sells for $38.00; gets terrible reviews

You know what they say: If something sounds too good to be true it probably is.  Well, now that saying is holding true for the world’s cheapest Android tablet PC, the “Akash” or “Sky” tablet that sells in India for approximately $38.00.  The tablet was meant to be the cheapest in the world, but thanks to what is reported to be “cheap parts” the tablet geared towards helping India’s students is getting terrible reviews.

Regardless of the technical specifications of the “Akash” or “Sky tablet,” one thing is certain; intentions for this tablet PC were good.  The government wanted to put a tablet pc in the hands of students, especially those living in rural areas that may not have access to modern technology.  Though the intentions were good, there is great worry that students won’t continue using the Akash Tablet PC due to the weak design.

The tablet PC is a 7 inch model based on Android 2.2 Froyo and features 256 MB Ram with a 2GB expandable storage (up to 32 GB) and has one USB port.  The display is 7 “ and it comes with an 800 X 400 resolution and touch screen.  Battery life is expected to last up to 180 minutes.
