Aakash tablet is in the news for many reasons: firstly, its the cheapest tablet computer developed till date; secondly, its eagerly awaited yet nobody knows the exact date when it’ll come out for sale in the retail market.

The second version of Aakash tablet i.e Aakash-2 is under development and expected be out by April 2012. It would add many new features, some of the  proposed improvements in Aakash-2 tablet are,

  1. RAM upgraded to 1Gb, presently its just 256Mb. At the present configuration, simultaneous running of heavy multiple softwares might be problematic. With improved RAM size, laptop would perform faster.
  2. Improvement in processor speed; it’ll go up to 800Mhz, presently its 366Mhz which is not good at all.
  3. The overheating problem to be solved and battery power to be boosted.
  4. Present version of Aakash has poor sound quality, it’ll be improved and support to all file formats would be provided in the coming Aakash-2 tablet.
  5. Aakash tablet has Android 2.2 but no support to andoid marketplace which means you can’t download new apps and games. The next version, Aakash-2 would provide lots of pre-installed as well as unlimited apps and games to download.
  6. The biggest disadvantage of Aakash tablet is the absence of inbuilt camera, but there is every possibility that Aakash-2 would come with an inbuilt camera.
  7. Aakash-2 will allow users to download YouTube videos directly, no need to get download links from other websites.
  8. And finally the best part of Aakash-2: Cost won’t go up, rather Government is looking for tweaks to cut down the price of the cheapest tablet. Present market price is Rs 3200 which might come down by 4-5% by the end of 2012.
