ClssicPad to A Tab


									         New Challenger To ClassPad,
       Acrossworld Education Brings Out
AcrossWorld Education has just announced ATab, a tablet meant primarily for

Priced at Rs. 5000, the tablet will be manufactured in collaboration with Go Tech. The 7
Inch touch-screened tablet features mainstream specifications like a 1.12GHz (Single-
Core) Processor, 512MB RAM. For connectivity it has Bluetooth & WiFi. Keeping in
mind the purpose, no inbuilt 3G option is available.

What makes it stand apart is the bundled & available content. AcrossWorld is offering 3-
year free and unlimited access to its proprietary education platform –EducationBridge.
This cloud-sourced multimedia content will help not just students, but academic
institutions & teachers in imparting education much more effectively. India is clearly
witnessing emergence of low-cost tablets meant specifically for the education sphere.
First Aakash made a splash. Though it made huge pre-sales its specs are very mediocre.
Then came ClassPad, a brainchild of IITians. This is just the hardware.

Meanwhile, top-notch companies like Apple have also developed apps for spreading
education through their iPads. Even Youtube started Educational ‘Channels’. Overall
Education is getting attention like never before!

The ATab is supposed to be available from second week of March & it will have
Google’s Android running the show. Though targeted at Educational institutes, it also has
capability to plug a full-fledged 3G Dongle for high-speed internet on the go. Looks like
it will work for everyone looking for a cheap & affordable tablet. Go Tech also has
higher-spec’d tablets in its portfolio, Rs 8,000 for 7.1-inch FunTab Fudge & Rs 17,000
for 9.1-inch Funtab Fantasy.
