Low-cost Aakash Android tablet for only $44!

In the past, you have possibly spotted a number of cheap tablet PC deals on the internet. Do you still recall the $99 TouchPad firesale? Well, let me introduce you to an Android tablet that is surprisingly cheap. For only $44 (yes you heard it right!), you can now own a tablet!

Let me take you to India, a nation where hi-tech gizmos are becoming ever so popular, despite the fact that many of them have no or little experience of using them. That is precisely the challenge that the Indian Ministry of Education is hoping to deal with. The plan is to present the Android tablets to rural schools that have minimal access to advanced technologies.

The Indian government will be buying 100,000 Aakash Android tablets at a price of $44 each. It will then be sold to schools at a lower price tag of $22.
