“GetJar is an established partner with a very large selection of free applications that users can download onto their UbiSlate or Aakash tablets. We’re excited by the added value this brings to our end users,” says DataWind CEO Suneet Singh Tuli, while announcing partnership with GetJar.
DataWind's partnership with GetJar will definitely bring more value to the upgraded Aakash tablet, which will be coming out with better specifications such as better processor and a capacitive touchscreen at the same price of the original Aakash tablet. The Aakash tablet is slated to receive a major hardware upgrade - dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor, and the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS later this year.
“Low-cost tablets open the capabilities of applications and the Internet for millions of people. We are happy to help Datawind make free applications and our GetJar Gold program available to these new tablet customers,” Chris Dury, GetJar’s CEO adds.
