UK-based Datawind today said IIT-Bombay is in the process of testing low-cost tablet PC Aakash with upgraded specifications proposed by it.
“IIT Bombay is in the process of testing the samples and developing applications and content for engineering colleges,” said Datawind CEO Sunit Singh Tuli.
He added the samples are as per the Aakash-2 specifications proposed by DataWind and issued by IIT-Bombay’s order. Datawind has submitted 100 samples to IIT-Bombay and the institute is expected to provide a feedback in a couple of weeks.
The Aakash 2 tablet is likely to go for manufacturing as soon as IIT-Bombay approves the upgraded specifications.
