Datawind is bringing three commercial “UbiSlate” versions of its 7-inch, Android 4.0 Aakash tablets to the U.S., including a model that starts at $38.

In India, sales of the Aakash 2 overtook the iPad according to U.K.-based Datawind.
Fedora 20 was released today, with support for ARM as a primary architecture. While x86 will still be the default for most Fedora users, classifying ARM as a primary architecture means that "it receives the same amount of attention that the x86 and x86-64 releases get," Fedora Project release notes say.
