Manufactured by VVDN Technologies in collaboration with MediaTek India and, the MILKYWAY AI-tablets come embedded with unique features of repairability and upgradability to address the pressing concerns of the digital divide and the accumulation of electronic refuse in India.

Chairman EPIC Foundation Ajai Chowdhry, said “Aligned with our overarching goal of elevating Indian electronics to real AtmaNirbharta or self-reliance, we want to build products in such a way that the components are easily replaceable and upgradable.”

The new Tablet will address two critical aspects of education and social empowerment - drive demand for ‘Indian, repairable, sustainable’ electronics products and brands in high impact high-volume categories; and remove financial and logistical obstacles that prevent schools from obtaining repairable, high impact devices and increase life of the product.

Aimed at playing an active enabler of digital learning, the education tablet is first of its kind to come integrated with the BharatGPT virtual assistant and will highlight AI/ML based inter-lingual translation for Indian languages to support language diversity of India and inclusion of differently abled fellow citizens.

Founder CMD, Iris Global, Sanjiv Krishen said “The demand for indigenously manufactured educational tablets in states is very encouraging. The new tab comes with a variety of use cases. Crucially, it is repairable and upgradable. Adding an AI-enabled education tablet represents the high-water mark of our MII dream”.

Krishen said that the objective has been served because all original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) of IT products are gearing up to make their products in India. Dell, HP, and others have all increased their capacities to meet the demand for IT products. The ban on importing products, like laptops, has led to most manufacturers progressing from import to local manufacturing, which was giving Make in India, a great boost.

“EPIC is happy to have OEM partner like IRIS Global to scale First Designed in India PC Tablet under brand “MilkyWay”; Wish them all the best to be preferred brand for the students” Chowdhry concluded.
