Remember we reported Aakash 2 tablet made by Indian government? It was the lowest-priced tablet in India. However, lately UbiSlate 7Ci, the world’s cheapest tablet and a commercial version of Aakash 2 tablet, has been launched in the UK. It costs £30 only.
This 7-inch UbiSlate 7Ci can provide a resolution of 800 x 480p and runs a modified version of Android 4.0.3 “Ice Cream Sandwich.” This tablet is developed by London-based Datawind and packs a Cortex A8 1GHz processor, 512 MB of RAM, 4GB of storage that can be expanded up to 32GB via a microSD card. It also comes with wi-fi connectivity, a microUSB connection, built-in games and some education apps.
Note that, UbiSlate 7Ci was initially built for use in universities and colleges in India, but due achieving massive success and popularity among students, the tablet, later was made available in other regions. However, compared to other tablets, UbiSlate 7Ci costs £50, £70 and £90 less than Aldi’s Lifetab, Argos’ MyTablet and Tesco’s Hudl, respectively.
It is the latest in a line of budget tablets that have been launched ahead of Christmas.
