Sakshat... I don't know what it means in Hindi, but I can imagine what people will think it means in English.

The word "Sakshat" means "to witness" or "in real life/form". The word is normally used in the Hindi language in reference to God. E.g. a person, who has supposedly been visited by God would say that "Sakshat God has visited me". Meaning that god in real life/form has visited him. But it doesn't always have to be linked with the divine. I can actually find no reason why they would call a tablet that. Maybe a "gift of god" or maybe a "true form" of a tablet.
