India recently showcased the world’s cheapest tablet PC aakash also knows as ubislate 7 . The cheapest price is the killer feature of aakash tab , but critics are not happy with its hardware specifications and performance and they even questioned the usability of aakash . Now government of India has decided to launch the upgraded version of aakash , the Aakash 2 also called as Ubislate 7+ which will have better specifications than current aakash .
We compared the specifications of Aakash and upcoming UbiSlate 7+ (aakash 2) on key parameters and found UbiSlate 7 quite better than Aakash tablet PC .
Aakash runs on 366 Mhz which is very poor processor speed in today’s world . UbiSlate 7 (aakash 2) on the other hand runs on 700Mhz processor . So with UbiSlate 7+ you will have a double power processor .
Aakash has 256 Mb of RAM while Aakash 2 has 256 Mb RAM with 2 GB internal memory .
3. Operating System
Aakash runs on andoird 2.2 while UbiSlate runs on android 2.3 . With UbiSlate 7+you will have the upgraded android OS
Aakash is powered by 2100 mAh battery while UbiSlate is powered by 3200 mAh , which mean you will have more battery backup with UbiSlate 7 (aakash 2 )
Aakash offers WiFi while Aakash 2 (UbiSlate 7) offers WiFi , GPRS with SIM and phone functionality . That means you can use UbiSlate 7+ as phone also .
Aakash 2 has both back and front facing camera , while aakash doesn’t offers this .
aakash tablet is available at the price of Rs 2500 while aakash 2 will be available at the price of Rs 2999 , which is quite justified on the basis of newly added features .
Aakash 2 will be available by February 2012 . Aakash is already on sale you can order it for Rs 2500 . Seeing the upgraded features I would suggest you to wait for a month for aakash 2 . I think buying aakash 2 will be a good choice than buying aakash , though you have to pay extra 500 Rs , but you will get lots of better features .
