As unending a debate over whether Akash-2 was originally made in China, Canada or India, the Government has bought 10000 Aakash 2 tablets and sent them to the Indian Institute of Technology-Bombay tomuscle them up with loads of applications for Indian Classrooms. Aakash-2 will not be available in Indian markets, so as to ‘revolutionize the education’. Instead, these will be given to approximately 20000 engineering students to deveop a better machine for the higher versions of the tablet.
Now while Aakash-2 is being groomed for the Indian Classrooms, IIT Madras is getting ready with its all new version, Aakash–3. Aakash 3 (A-3) supposedly shall be ‘Remarkably Different’ from the previous versions of Aakash as per the developer- Mr. Ashok Jhunjhunwala, professor of Electrical Engineering, IIT Madras.
The company is looking forward to setup a larger distribution and servicing system to facilitate the owners of Akash-3 as they are expecting to get much higher orders. The hardware and software specifications of Akash-3 have not been disclosed as of now.
