Ubislate 7Ci the world`s cheap tablet.

WorldWide Tech & Science. Francisco De Jesùs.

For many consumers who can not afford buying a tablet, Ubislate launch of the tablet 7Ci is a gift from heaven, especially when are few  days left before Christmas . And it only costs $ 40.-

The tablet , which started shipping in the UK and manufactured by the British company Datawind , is the commercial version of the Aakash 2 tablet , which was originally introduced in India in 2011.

There the device is used primarily by students. In fact , it was designed to provide cheap internet access , in order to improve education.

When the Aakash was launched two years ago was called the " Tablet world's cheapest touch screen ." The first was not well received by critics, but the improved version, the Aakash 2 got more positive comments .

Analysts say that if compared to other tablets in the market , British customers might be disappointed .

And is that the specifications are not impressive.

The device, 18cms , runs a modified version of Android 4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich) , a chip Cortex A8 1GHz and 512MB of RAM. That's the same chip design used in the iPhone 3GS , released in 2009 , and the Samsung Galaxy S 2010.

It also has a resolution of 800 x 400 compared to 1440 x 900 Hudl offers economic tablet British supermarket chain Tesco , which costs about $ 160.

Storage is much lower than the competition . It has only 4GB, while Hudl has 16GB .

At the same time , its battery lasts about three hours, a third of the average of nine hours with other tablets that feature .

According to Datawind , the 7Ci has access to over 150,000 apps and can handle basic functions such as email and internet browsing . This might be enough for a good portion of customers who do not require a particularly sophisticated tablet.

Affordability ? vs Quality?
Speaking at the Wired 2013 conference in October , Suneet Singh Tuli , Datawind founded , said affordability was key to the internet is a massive issue.

"It's not just about creating a low-cost device , it is for us to offer internet ," he said .

A partnership with the Indian government helped Aakash 2 became one of the country 's best-selling tablets .

" Earlier this year we became the largest supplier of tablets in India , ahead of Apple and Samsung ," Tuli said.

"The reality is that with any consumer electronics device you get what you pay for ," said Ben Wood , an analyst at research firm CCS Insight.

" Any consumer who buys the Ubislate 7Ci with the expectation that it will offer an experience comparable to other more expensive , but also affordable , as Amazon Kindle Fire (which can be purchased for about $ 170) and Hudl will feel very disappointed. "

On the net , commentators are divided. "I could buy some to use as coasters ," said a user on the Technobuffalo portal. While another, in the Cnet page , praised as " the best you can buy for that price ."

" I use it to watch YouTube, check email and Facebook . What more could you want? " He added .
