The cheapest computer of the world

The cheapest computer tablet in the world is named 'Aakash'. This computer tablet is only made for the students of India. It will cost only 1130 rupees or 20 U.S dollars for any student in India. 

The Aakash is made by UK-based company Datawind. Technology writer Prasanto K Roy tests the upgraded version of the world's cheapest tablet computer Aakash 2 and discovers a significantly improved product. Unlike the much-panned first version version launched a year ago, the new Aakash - which means sky - is very usable. It's slim, smart and light, and performs well.

Aakash 2 runs Ice Cream Sandwich, Google's Android 4.0 operating system. Also new is access to the search firm's Play Store, which lets users choose from thousands of apps. This compact tablet has a 7in (17.8cm) display and, at 292 grams (0.6lb), is lighter than the iPad Mini and Nexus 7. The Aakash 2 now uses a capacitive multi-touch display, and a 1 GHz Cortex A8 processor that's three times faster, making touch and apps more responsive. Memory and storage have been doubled, to 512 MB RAM and 4 GB flash, respectively.
