Akaash - World's cheapest Tablet PC

Indians are all set to revolutionize the means of education. Gone are the days when teachers used old traditional methods of teaching. Sleek, small, and eco-friendly is now in. Chalk and boards have been replaced by ppts and books by ebooks. Tablet PCs are surely going to revolutionize the way of teaching and being taught. This tablet would narrow the gap between the mass who was able to access the digital world to the one who couldn't.
