The Indian Tablet 'Sakshat' project success was a result of the partnership between the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) and four IITs, and its endeavor was to overpass the digital partition among the students in India.
The tablet will be subsided by the Indian government and will be sold to educational institutions in India and bad news for others that it will not be offered in retail. The prominent features of the tablet consist of that it is powered by Linux, have 2 GB memory, has a touch screen as well as an inbuilt keyboard, Wi-Fi connectivity, computing competence such as OpenOffice and SciLab, and has a power rating of just 2 Watts consequently that it can be used in low power supply regions also.
We are definitely pleased to notice that the Sakshat project is at last up and functioning. Its specs are moderately remarkable; it can be a genuine prospect for students who come from humbler backgrounds to be proficient to be a part of the Indian IT occurrence, although improving their production at school or college.
This is a authentic feather in the cap for the Education Ministry of India, and is comparable to the laptops developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the US.
