We’ve been in talking about the Indian cheapest Aakash 2 tablet recently that sells for the equivalent of $35 for students and teachers. While the tablet is due to go on sale in the country in the coming few weeks, the tablet-maker Datawind has announced that they will release an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the tablet around six to eight weeks after the tablet goes on sale, which should be before the end of April, though, according to report.
Powered by a single core 800 MHz processor, the Aakash 2 tablet packs a 7 –inch capative touchscreen, and it is coupled by 256 MB of memory with 2 GB of storage space.
The Aakash 2 (Ubislate 7+) is a low-cost Android tablet designed to provide students with access to the internet and to educational apps.
Datawind can compile and distribute the update based on Android’s open-source code, but if they manage to actually install it on the low-end tablet, it’s hard to imagine that it would run well as the tablet doesn’t meet the recommended specifications for ICS. We’ll be keeping an eye on this one, though.
