The popular low cost tablet will be priced at Rs 2,263. The device will run Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and will have a 2GB flash storage, a 256 MB RAM and a 800Mhz processor.

The original Aakash tablet that was being taken care of by IIT Rajasthan, was bashed by one and all because of its poor responsiveness and bad quality overall. That time the tablet was being manufactured by DataWind along with IIT Rajasthan. IIT Rajasthan had proposed additional features in the low cost tablet which the manufacturer felt was unreasonable. IIT Rajasthan wanted the tablet to be water-proof and loaded with military-style specifications. Owing to these issues, the projectís development was transferred to the folks at IIT-Bombay.
