This sounds ridiculous, doesn’t it? Think about it – iPad is £400, so the question would be – “What can I get for £25?” Well, quite a lot.
Obviously, the £25 tablet will run Android, that’s obvious, isn’t it? Let me introduce you to Aakash tablet.
Aakash tablet is a low-cost tablet computer manufactured by a British company DataWind. It is a low-cost 7-inch tablet that has recently been upgraded to second version with much better specifications.
Aakash tablet has been developed in India aiming to link over 25,000 colleges and universities and give students access to latest technology for a very low price.
Here are some of the specifications of the £25 Aakash tablet:

Obviously, the device has limitations, there are a few things I’d be missing on this device, but it depends what you are going to use it for. The majority of users use their tablet for web browsing, checking emails and watching videos/listening to music and for that, Aakash would be just fine.
