After a wave of speculations, HCL had finally confirmed that it would be bidding for the Aakash 2, but only if the price is feasible or else it will exit gracefully. Aakash2 is the next and upgraded version of the cheapest tablet in the world, known as an ambitious attempt at bringing technology to the have-nots and has not met with success, in terms of being able to keep up with performance expected by masses. Nevertheless, HCL has its own slew of tablets in the market , including the HCL U1 and MyEdu Tab that were launched in the market recently.
