India’s Aakash tablet soon to be free for students

The Aakash $60 dollar education tablet that has taken India by storm is about to get even better. The student and education-based government subsidized tablet might soon become free for students, instead of the current $35 price tag they are paying today. This would be a huge move and would see sales skyrocket -- although it's been widely popular already.

NEC LT-W Dual-Screen Android Tablet [Hands-On Demo]

In Barcelona at World Mobile Congress 2011, the Android was strong, man. So many people are interested in Android, in all its forms, that you never knew what you might find in the stands running on Google's mobile OS. One of the more interesting items we found (more in theory than in practice) was the following dual-screen Android tablet presented by NEC. Operating with several apps, widgets, so forth all aimed directly at schools, this NEC LT-W tablet made sure that our hope for future generations of students making full use of the technology of the day was completely renewed.
