300,000 pre-orders for India’s $45 tablet

India’s $45 tablet, the Aakash, has reportedly received 300,000 pre-orders. This number is for the $60 retail version, and is larger than the size of India’s retail tablet market. The tablet accesses the internet on a $2 per month Edge connection.

Following the launch of the Aakash, telecom providers in India have responded with their own low-cost offerings, ranging from $120 to $200.
