It was built for the advantage of students studying in Universities to encourage them to study technology further on. It will cost them only Rs 1,500 which is also equivalent to $ 31 as the government subsidized it for them. But if this tablet is sold out in the market, the customer’s price range would be amounting to $59, which will not be over Rs 3,000.

Now before you say hooray and yahoo about this technology, there are also CONS or disadvantages about this product. Number one is that it has Resistive Screen, meaning it’s an oldie. Stylus is not included in the price bracket and there is no camera and calling capabilities in this gadget.

Kinda slow if you asked me, but it’s up to you if you are still interested to buy it.
By the way, it was developed and manufactured by a Canadian based firm called Datawind with coordination of course by IIT Rajasthan. If you would just want to be IN and have some experience on using tablets, then you can try out this product which is just cheap. But if you are into quality and you have the budget to buy, needless to say then go on with the quality.
