Aakash Tablet vs UbiSlate 7 Table Comparison & Specs

The Aakash Tablet is an Indian revolutionary tablet which is tagged as the world’s cheapest Android tablet. Whether it’s revolutionary or just another dump of the Chinese tablet, the people have seen it. The Aakash tablet is now available for purchase and at the same time the Ubislate 7 is also available for purchase. There is a lot of confusion between the two devices and the users are too confused which one to buy. We in this article have covered clear explanation to sort out the problems and bring in the clear picture of what’s happening with this revolutionary tablet hype.

Aakash Ubislate

It’s clear that the Aakash tablet is the dumped version of Ubislate but there is a lot of difference between Aakash tablet and the UbiSlate 7 tablet. To make things clear, Ubislate 7 is the upgraded version of Aakash and it’s named as Aakash 2. Here in this article we will compare the Ubislate 7 with Aakash tablet.

Table of Content

Processor

Aakash – ARM 11 processor clocked at 366 Mhz
Ubislate 7 – Cortex A8 processor clocked at 700 Mhz

Aakash tablet has ARM 11 processor clocked at 366 Mhz. The processor speed is very less and even starting Android phone has a minimum of 550 Mhz processor. With that it causes freezing and overheating problem even within one hour of usage. The upgraded version of Aakash i.e., the Ubislate 7 comes with new Cortex A8 processor clocked at 800 Mhz processor. The processor specifications of Ubislate 7 are not that good buts it’s fair enough to run the device with no issues (Galaxy Ace has nearly same processor speed).
Winner: Ubislate 7

Operating System

Aakash – Android 2.2 Froyo OS
Ubislate 7 – Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS

Both Aakash and Ubislate 7 tablets are powered with the Google’s Android operating system, still there is much difference in the version incorporated in both the devices. Though the Android OS version doesn’t make much difference but it makes clear cut in Aakash as it’s with low processor and RAM so that it can’t be upgraded to higher version of Android. The Aakash tablet is with Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system, the highest for smartphones in Android.

The Aakash tablet goes with Getjar application download and the Android Market willnot work here whereas Ubislate has full access to Android Market and download applications too.

Display Screen

Aakash – 7 inches display screen
Ubislate 7 – 7 inches display screen

There is no difference between Aakash and Ubislate 7 and both of them have 7 inches touchscreen display with 800 x 480 pixels display screen resolution. Both the tablet have resistive touchscreen display.

Camera

Aakash – No Camera
Ubislate 7 – Front Facing VGA Camera

Nothing much in camera department too for Aakash. Aakash slips her too with no camera and the Ubislate 7 has basic VGA front facing camera which is useful to have when you want to go with video chat and video calls.
Winner : Ubislate 7

Battery

Aakash – 2100 mAh battery
Ubislate 7 – 3200 mAh battery

The Aakash tablet comes with 2100 mAh battery and Ubislate 7 comes with 3200 mAh battery. There is serious improvement the successor model of Aakash which provides 3 hours of battery backup. The Aakash tablet with less in processor specifications overheats too much and this causes the battery to drain out quickly. Observed that the Aakash tablet lasts for a maximum of one hours during video playback, which is very very bad battery backup time.
Winner: Ubislate 7

Memory

There is huge difference in the RAM of both the tablets. The earlier version of Aakash has 256 MB of RAM whereas the upgraded Aakash 2 i.e., the Ubislate 7 will have atleast 512 MB RAM. The Ubislate comes with 2 GB of internal flash memory and a micro SD card slot supporting memory card with 2 GB, 4 GB, 8 GB, 16 GB and 32 GB of storage. Aakash tablet also has the 2 GB of internal memory and upgradeable to 32 GB in size. This storage is for documents, photos, music and video storage.

Network & Speed

The Aakash tablet has the option of Wi-Fi internet access and so the internet speed completely depends on the Wi-Fi signal strength and your internet plans. Provided that Aakash tablets strucks and overheat, I feel like it’s would be not the right device to obtain good results even though you have Wi-Fi. Coming to Ubislate 7, the GPRS and the Wi-Fi both are available and users would be happy accept both. If they have available Wi-Fi then they would make use of it or else the GPRS on their tablet will do it for them, although it would be littler slower in accessing.

Connectivity

The Aakash tablet comes with the option of Wi-Fi connectivity to browse internet and it doesn’t have a SIM card slot too. Coming to UbiSlate 7, it comes with Wi-Fi and GPRS internet browsing and SIM insertion option too. This is definitely an add-on and users wouldn’t mind paying little higher amount to go with both the options. Moreover users would be able to make voice calls and video calls using Ubislate 7 tablet.

User Interface

Practically observing it’s just the difference in the Android version which makes the user interface changed. Android 2.3 Gingerbread being the latest development of Android 2.2 Froyo, it’s with good user interface and various other options included.

Price

The Aakash tablet is priced at Rs 2500 in India for the general customers and for 50 % rebate for Indian students. Coming the to the price of Ubislate 7, it’s priced at Rs 2999.

Verdict

Finally the Aakash tablet is manufactured in India through Datawind and Ubislate 7 is just imported from Taiwan. Finally at a price of Rs 2500 and Ubislate 7 at a price of Rs 2999 has not much difference and I would suggest the users to go with Ubislate 7. There are no options for students as the rebate option is not available for Ubislate 7 tablet.

    This is a waste item I never seen in my life time. Waste of spending Rs.2999/-. If we donate this amount for some other purpose it will be useful. Don’t buy, don’t tensioned.

    Please dont purchase UBSLATE7 as nothing works on it, its very slow and dont have any applications at all, you cannot install anything on it as it freezes also there is no technical help. One number provided but no one picks the call. instead of wasting 3000 Rs. You can spend little more and go for branded one.

    Has anyone purchased the Ubislate?
    I have booked 1 month ago but They havenot send the Ubislate.
    I think this is only a marketing game played by them for getting popularity of their product.
    What is the reliability of cash on delivery concept?

      January 6, 2012 at 11:00 am

    • abilash

      January 22, 2012 at 7:16 pm

      vThe price of the Aakash Ubislate 7 is at Rs 2,500 and the Ubislate 7+ is priced at Rs 2,999 in India. Also for students, the Aaksh Ubslate 7 has been priced under 50% rebate at the price of Rs 1,128 as it can be used to increase the standard of education through technology.

    thanks… its very very useful..! 🙂 but still shud I buy Aakash as our college is providing it for Rs. 1200 (which is just a nominal price!)?? any suggestions?

    • Yogesh Patel

      December 31, 2011 at 3:18 pm

      The tablet hangs a lot and I can say that although its 1200 Rs but its waste of money, instead add another 2,000 Rs and get Ubislate.

  35. Ashish

    December 31, 2011 at 2:03 pm

    Probably once someone reads this will definitely understand why even afer aakash was launched people were still ready to wait for ubislate 7…

    • Yogesh Patel

      December 31, 2011 at 3:16 pm

      Its not that people waited, Aakash was mostly not available for purchase.
