The below information stated by the Minister of State in the Ministry of Human Resource Development Shri.E.AHAMED in response to a written question in Lok Sabha.

Government is considering a second design of Aakash tablets, Aakash Tablet on 5th October, 2011, higher specifications (which include 700 MHz Cortex A8 processor as against 366 MHz Arm 11 processor, 3200 mAH battery as against 2100 mAH battery and capacitive touch screen as against resistive touch screen) at the same price have been necessitated to overcome the initial difficulties observed in the devices. Earlier this project for procurement and testing of 1,00,000 Low cost tablets was assigned to IIT Rajasthan but in view of certain intractable problems being faced by them, now the project has been transferred to IIT Bombay for carrying it forward.

Since the first phase of 1, 00,000 tablets are targeted to the students in higher technical education institutions so as to ascertain technical feedback on its operation and usability; no norms for distribution of tablet have been laid down. Further, letters have been written to the Vice-Chancellors of universities, heads of higher educational institutions and State Governments to ascertain the demand for Aakash Tablets.
