  1. 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 some initial hiccups – as with any innovation.

    With regards.
