This is basically a device for College students in India where they can access internet for their studies in university hostels or thru gprs. Again this is only for students but open to all and not for geeks or heavy tablet users. So we cant expect much for this money

This world is not made of rich peoples and not all can own a hi tech device. What did your government invented these kind of devices for your students. Just know even many university students have their own laptop for their personalized things. Students in many countries do non sense with their computer or high end devices(Have you seen teens comments for not getting their iphone for christmas) but teens aren'e like this in India. They quarrel with parents but dont use foul languages as they do.

They seriously spend 50$ on this crap? I just lost all my respect to Indian people...

who cares if you dont have respect or not. First know for which purpose they release these things.

Any student who will buy this tablet for sure doesn't know how to use a PC because you're stupid if you buy such a thing like this :)

Anywhere you go, you find a bunch of incorrigible twats ready to scribble bigotry for no apparent reasons. I hate this fact.
To be back on-topic, what the heck? Just 366 MHz ARM-
based processor, 256 MB RAM? It's good that Indians have a goverment taking the incentive to reach out those who can't afford high-level specs but this, to me, just looks like gimmicky! I mean, wouldn't this, "it’s often been reported to freeze every
once in a while", going to drive users insane?

it will get updated. Remember the apple giant had battery problems, S2 had display problems?

You know what I'll pay another 50$ if they beef up specs little bit...like a 1ghz processor and 512MB ram. One can understand why they kept market away from this tab...it can barely run android...why to put burden of other apps!

well what kind of hardware do you expect for a $24 tablet?

Updated? I don't see what your point is? This article states that 1.4 million orders have already been placed for this tab which has the problem of freezing every now and then.

just ordered and not delivered, they might fix & deliver or they can release a s/w to fix that bug.

So, you're saying that you see a device with these specs: 366MHz processor, 256MB RAM, Wi-fi. Place an order. But what is delivered at your house is a device with 680MHz processor, 512MB RAM, Wi-fi, 3G! You don't make much sense dude.
On a side note, how do I reply directly to you?

HAHA i'm not meaning like that. A software upgrade might fix that bug.
Just hit the reply button appears right side of my name

height of ignorance @drahmad .. you see news ?? what is BRIC . What is its purpose ?
Which country's GDP is right next to china?
Which country is US preferring to stay with to strike a chord with South Asia for a regional balance ?
Can this be possible if INDIA is poor ?
Ofcourse every country has poverty in some form .
