WHAT MAKES AAKASH DIFFERENT ?

There can be many opinions about Aakash tablet , but it is worth remembering that ,

  • At its price-point , Aakash is the only tablet capable of bridging the digital divide between the urban and the rural India

  • It will be used by persons who have not even seen a smart phone or a computer – much less used these

  • Aakash is its own benchmark. Much like Walkman and iPod , it has created a new category - hence there can be no comparisons

  • More than 2 million orders are a proof that , it is a product which millions have been waiting for

     No doubt there will be hiccups – as with any innovation

    With regards
