A basic model allows users to check e-mail and file data on the system.
Aparate lets you browse to a limited extent–you can’t view websites with
heavy graphics or extensive Java scripting.

Along with its partners, Sasken is trying to deploy applications customizable
to user needs. You can have a QVGA B/W display of 4.6 inches, or a FVGA color
screen up to 8 inches. Communication is via dial-up, 802.11b or an Ethernet
connection. Aparate supports the Conqueror E browser and memory sizes can vary
from 8 MB to 32 MB. Battery life is about three hours and inputs can be keyed in
through the keyboard, a track ball and four soft keys right below the screen.

This device is targeted at the insurance sector, the health industry, the
supply chain of industries and other verticals that require a simple, portable
Internet access device, with a few applications thrown in.

Price: Rs 10,000.
