Wilco trying to bring Aakash tablet to the US

The low-cost, Indian-made Aakash tablet may come to schoolchildren in Philadelphia, the Financial Express reported. This is being made possible by Philadelphia-based Wilco Electronics, which is interested in the project. The seven-inch tablet, which runs on Android 2.2, carries a price tag as low as $35 for students in its native India.

Currently, Canadian manufacturer DataWind is building the tablets, but Wilco is attempting to secure the license to make the devices for the US market. If successful, the company wants to introduce them to students in local schools and under-served communities in the city.

The tablet is powered by a single-core, 700MHz Cortex 8 processor. Its 3,200mAh lithium-ion battery is said to last just three hours. [via AndroidCommunity]
