About DataWind Tablets
Based out of Montreal in Canada, DataWind happens to be a developer of products and services related to web accessibility. Besides this, the company is also known for its range of tablets that are solely manufactured for educational purposes. The Akash tablet is one of the company’s more famous products, which also happens to be the cheapest in the world of tablet computers. It is known to make smartphones as well.
History of DataWind Tablets
DataWind was founded around the start of the present millennium in 2001. It was largely into the development of web access services and products. In fact, the company is known to own 14 patents relating to such services.
In 2004, the company started to manufacture mobiles/web browsing devices, known as the PocketSurfer. Later on, the company also started to manufacture UbiSlate tablets primarily made for the Indian Government for educational purposes. The first of its products was known as the Akash tablet and was available at just $35 for students. Commercially, this was the UbiSlate 7 tablet and was priced at just $60. By 2012, the company had the largest share in the tablet market segment, excluding the ones that were offered by the Indian Government.
Popularity in India
DataWind’s tablet releases have been a successful story in India. The company won a tender for the supply of educational tablets to the Indian Government in 2011. The following year it was ready with its first product, the Akash tablet. This was available to students and also commercially to customers.
The company’s UbiSlate tablets have been a good success story since then. In fact, the company was the largest market share holder in the tablet category in early 2013. Since then, the company has gone on to release several other devices in the lineup too.
Design of DataWind Tablets
DataWind’s tablets are known to have a simple outlook and design. They carry the traditional slate form factor like almost every tablet. In terms of build quality, they feature a polycarbonate plastic make. This makes the device light, but not very strong like metal. The UbiSlate branding, along with the model name, is present in the center of the back of these devices.
The size of the screen is usually between 7 inches and 10 inches. The display is decent and nothing extraordinary, considering their purpose and price point. However, one shouldn’t have problems with views presented by these devices.
The color availability is largely limited to two basic color options, which are black and white.
Features of DataWind Tablets
DataWind’s tablet devices are equipped with good features, although they are nothing very extravagant or outstanding. Considering that they are largely educational tablets, this strategy fares completely well to keep costs at a minimum.
The tablets are largely powered by processors of the latest ARM architecture and design. As such, they have multiple cores and are powerful in solving tasks. The availability of RAM depends on the model and is either of 512MB or 1GB. The storage capacity is kept to 4/8GB and can be further expanded with a micro-SD card.
All UbiSlate tablets from DataWind come with Android OS. The last release has been known to run Android KitKat.
The devices have cameras on the front for all the models. Many of them also feature rear cameras, this being mostly true for the later releases.
Connectivity is very good for tablets from DataWind. It has support for Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, cellular SIM with 3G for many models and more. It has a 3.5mm headphone jack and micro-USB port too. DataWind tablets are also known to be large on data savings as they have the company’s patented data compression technology.
The battery life is fairly good with these tablets too.
