A new tablet has entered the India tablet market from Classteacher Learning Systems called the Classpad. Which is now looking to give the Aakash $50 budget tablet a little competition. The Aakash has already started well though and has already chalked up 1.4 million pre-orders in just two weeks.
The new Classpad tablet for $140 is priced at nearly three times the cost of the budget Aakash tablet, and can rise to a hefty $265 if you take all the higher specifications.
However the specifications do somewhat justify the increase in price, providing users with a Android 2.2 Froyo, with 8Gb of internal memory and a 6 hour battery life. Together with an improved touchscreen when compared to the Aakash tablet.
Classteacher Learning Systems, Rohit Pande, chief executive officer explains:
“Classpad’s user friendly interface makes it convenient for the students and teachers to get acquainted with the application. It is equipped with software that is designed to integrate smoothly with an existing school platform. Classpad tablet provides the content in a ‘school friendly’ manner by supporting commonly used school applications,”
