Samsung Galaxy Star Pro released in India

In the Indian market, Micromax is the incumbent leader. With nearly a quarter of the market share, they easily rival all other OEMs for supremacy in the emerging Indian market. Samsung is distancing themselves from their competition further, and has released the Galaxy Star Pro as a competitively priced offering.

Android Nation Stores now in India

Google didn't see fit to sit around and watch all the other big tier companies wander casually onto Indian soil (You know, the country with the second largest population in the world) and take up all their possible mobile sales, so they've decided to do something about it. In an effort to broaden the Android user-base and push sales of Android equipped devices in India, Google has taken the initiative to open their first store in New Delhi's Select CityWalk.

India bringing low cost Aakash 2.0 Android tablets to students

Indian President Shri Pranab Mukherjee announced that the country is brining a new, low-cost Android tablet to students. The new Aakash 2.0 will be subsidized by the Indian government, which should make it cheaper for students to get their hands on the device.

Two more Aakash Tablet models headed for India

The new crop of ultra-cheap reader tablets have nothing on the Ubislate/Aakash, Datawind's dirt-cheap tablet for the Indian educational market. In addition to the slightly updated Ubislate 7+, the Ubislate 7C will soon grace shelves and schoolrooms on the subcontinent. The only difference between the two is that the 7+ uses a resistive touchscreen while the 7C uses a more modern capacitive model - the same kind that's installed on pretty much every smartphone and tablet out there.

Google offers free data to Android users in India

Smartphones are great. Smartphone data plans? Not so great, especially in parts of the world where the mobile infrastructure is somewhat lacking. But it looks like Google's doing something about that in India: they're partnering with Reliance Communications to give free mobile data access with the purchase of a new Android phone or tablet.

India’s Aakash 2 tablet to get Android 4.0 upgrade

Here's something we never expected to see: the Aakash tablet (AKA the Ubislate) will be getting a software upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, according to Suneet Singh Tuli, the CEO of Canadian electronics manufacturer Datawind. Tuli says that after the slightly upgraded Aakash 2 launches in two to three weeks, users will get an Ice Cream Sandwich software upgrade six to eight weeks later. Tuli didn't say if it would be delivered over-the-air or as a separate PC download, the latter of which would be difficult for many Indian students at which the device is aimed.
