DataWind says India's low-cost tablet is not cheap Chinese import

UK-based DataWind, the maker of India's low-cost Aakash tablet has denied a local media report that said the computer was a cheap Chinese import and not an Indian innovation as was claimed, AFP has reported. The allegations in the Hindustan Times newspaper that the company had "conned" India with the computer were "inaccurate and misleading," the firm said. DataWind chief executive Suneet Singh Tuli said the company's business model was similar to that of technology giant Apple "where we use subcontract manufacturers to build our products." "The software and mechanical parts (of Aakash 2 tablets) are developed by us," Tuli said in the statement.
