Sakshat, the much proclaimed 35$ cheap pad computer is going to be commercially available by the beginning of 2011. Reports say the leading Computer manufactures HCL got the contract to manufacture this prestigious tablet computer of India. It is quiet incidental that now a shocking news is spreading over the net. “Sakshat is a copy of Chinese manufacturer Hivision’s SpeedPad PWS700HA .” Hivision had displayed this product at CeBIT 2010.
Sakshat is developed by the premier scientific institutes of India like the IITs and IISc . This is the main reason to make this news unbelievable, but after going through the pictures, videos and features of both the devices, a second thought will certainly come into your mind also.
See the pictures and videos of Hivision’s PWS700HA and Sakshat. Not only the appearance, Features are also similar. Both the devices are Android based, 3G and WiFI enabled, Display is of 7 inches, Touch screen, Web Cam etc. The market price of the Hivision’s product is 100$ . One similar model model PWS 700FS is showcased in Hivsion’s site, which is powered by Windows CE OS.
