Soon another competitor for the I-Pad?

Hi there,
the Ubislate 7+ has been recently released by Datawind. Its predecessor, the Askash, was launched to the Indian market and enjoyed a great success, in spite of a significantly lower performance that the I-pad. Do you think that people would buy Ubislate 7+ in Europe? Do you reckon it could become a substitution for the I-Pad for some users? The price is about € 58.

Here are some of the technical specifications:

-Android 2.3 operating System
-Connexant with Graphics and accelerator and HD video processor
- High quality video streaming and HD quality video play back available
- 256MB RAM with 2GB Flash internal storage
- 7 inch touch screen display with 800x480 pixel resolution
- DOC/DOCX/PPT/PPTX/XLS/XLSX/ODT/ODP and more document formats supported
- Connectivity with GPRS and WiFi 802.11 a/b/g c
- Battery 3200mAh back up up to 180 minutes

I would deeply appreciate your comments!

Didn't find anything but yet another Android tablet. 180 minute battery? I can only guess you haven't used an iPad.

competitor for I-pad?

In reply to: Confused.

thanks for your comment.
I know that in terms of the functionalities they are not comparable, but the question is whether people would nevertheless be willing to buy it because of the cheap price. In India, for instance, the previous version sold 1,4 Million units in 2 weeks.
So, do you think it could become an option for people with lower budgets willing to familiarize themselves with technology?

Not comparable then not a competitor.

It appears this is little more than spam.

The idea you asked about has been kicked around for decades. I can only guess you missed prior attempts with the OLPC and others.

If you are truly in this area of research and discussion you find a cell phone with a little smarts does so much more.

what about the low-end?

In reply to: Not comparable then not a competitor.

You are absolutely right. Besides, I believe you and I would not even consider such an option and think in such a pragmatic way, because we are likely to be able to afford a smartphone, and an I-pad. Yet, what about people in the lower end of the market? Would they think in the same terms? Or, could they see the acquisition of a tablet as a means of feeling better about themselves?

There are plenty of sub 100 buck tablets today.

Do yourself a favor and search for its specifications, and review on youtube. It's completely useless.
It has a resistive touchscreen, poor battery and has got complaints of over heating during the testing.

iPad is awesome, you cant just imagine a random entry level tablet to replace it.
