        Thank you Sir,

        It means we have to install the printer drivers on the Aaakash tablet using USB flash drive. Right ?

        I have one more question.
        Does Aakash Tablet supports USB 2.0 and 3.0 ?

        Thanks & Regards,

            I understand that an ethernet port is used for Internet or LAN connectivity. I had inquired for VGA2USB RJ45/RJ11 cord at local hardware dealer but failed to find one.
