Review of India's $35 tablet, "Aakash"

India's version of iPad is selling for a stunning $35 (with state subsidy).
"Aakash"--sky in Hindi--is widely distributed as a learning tool in modern-day educational leader, India.
The new device boasts a word processing, web browsing and video conferencing ability.

Soon, Aakash will find its new market in the American consumers. But, will it be able to gain the trust and reliability it has garnered in its motherland? Daunting hurdles obstruct its release, such as quality assurance requirements of major retailers such as Walmart, Target and Best Buy.

See a explanation of the product by the CEO of its manufacturer, Datawind:

1. Android 2.2 OS
2. 7" display with 800x480 pixel resolution
3. External storage capacity 2GB
4. GPRS, WiFi, SIM card slot, PDF reader, text editor, in-built keyboard, more.
