An Unexpected Technology

Though the internal specifications of this tablet is not satisfactorily met, the good news is that it could address the people's needs who could not afford to buy gadgets and stuffs since this is the main objective of this product. It only costs up to 37.99 $, half the price of the cover of an Ipad and seems very attractable to non-users. Also, this is the world's first sub-40$ Android slate and it is called UbiSlate 7ci, fellows. It was created by Datawind and it boasts a 7-inch feet screen, a Cortex A8 chip, 512 MB of RAM and just a 4GB internal storage. It was built initially to provide internet and personal computing access to India and was officially launched in the region by the UN secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, and it is now on-shore to the US and UK property. The tablet goes with a pre-installed education, entertainment, gaming stuffs, and productivity applications. It will also be able to access Google Play Store since it runs a version 4.0 of Android. The only thing that comes in handy is that it only has a small processor in which it will be hard to know if it can handle more intense applications. But still, affordable it is.

Suneet Singh Tuli, Datawind's CEO, says that, "The development of the tablet stemmed from the realization that lack of internet adoption in many parts of the world was primarily because of the lack of affordability. Our aim is to bridge the gap by offering cost-effective, high-specification devices and internet-access that offer excellent value to all". "At Datawind, we're working to bring affordable technology to the many millions of households who are currently excluded from benefiting from the digital revolution," added Suneet.
