With elections its central concern, the Indian government meanwhile, seems to have slowed down efforts to roll out Version 3 of the Aakash re-engineered by IIT Mumbai. Nothing has been heard after announcements at year beginning that some new manufacturers has been empanelled. Ironically DataWind who made Aakash happen in the first place is now able to tap multiple markets in the West, where a fully functional kids' tablet for $ 70 or so might seem like a steal.
