Even W.C. Fields would be happy as Philadelphia schools could get low priced tablet
low priced tablet made available to Philadelphia schools in the beginning, with wider distribution eventually to "under-served communities" in the area. If W.C. Fields once said that his epitaph would read, "On the whole, I'd rather be in Philadelphia," perhaps this tablet is the reason why.
The unit certainly won't win any benchmark test battles with its low-end specs. The Aakash is powered by a single-core 366MHz ARM based processor with 256MB of RAM aboard. 2GB of native storage comes with the model and that can be expanded by as much as 32GB using the microSD slotWi-Fi. Installed on the tablet is the wrinkly Froyo Android 2.2 OS. The tablet is said to have poor sound quality and freezes up at times. Instead of access to Google Play, it offers apps from GetJar. Depending on the amount that local school districts are willing to offer for a subsidy, the device could carry a price tag that just about every student could afford.
