Aakash (Sanskrit: आकाश "Sky") is a tablet computer designed in India as a low cost but full functioning device in order to attempt to bridge the digital divide. The commercial version of the tablet will be retailed under the brand name UbiSlate.[5] The original prototype named Sakshat (Sanskrit: साक्षात् "Embodiment") was unveiled in 2009, purported as a "$10 laptop".[6] A new prototype, costing $35 after government subsidy, was unveiled in 2010. The device was formally launched on 5 October 2011 as Aakash, made by the UK-based company DataWind. Aakash will be assembled at DataWind's new production centre in the southern city of Hyderabad.[7] Initially, the device will be sold to the Government of India at $50.[8] It is expected to be sold for $60 in the retail stores.[9] The device has been developed as part of the National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology that aims to link 25,000 colleges and 400 universities on the subcontinent in an e-learning program via an existing Sakshat portal.[10]
