Akash 2 ,price and launching



The first version Akash was launched last year in October promising a low cost computing device to students, but due to certain controversy between IIT Rajasthan and manufacturer Datawind , project got failed and didn’t get momentum, people who ordered the Akash are still waiting it to be delivered.

We hope that Govt will have good shipping plan this time , so that device may reach to maximum number of students in limited time.

Datawind had won the tender last year for making and supplying the Akash tablet at $49 per unit, which will cost $35 to anyone after subsidized by govt.
