The wait for the Aakash tablet is going to be longer, even for those who have already ordered the ultra low-cost tablet online. According to recent reports, DataWind is scheduled to start distribution of the Aakash tablet only in January. It’s notable that the Aakash tablet was supposed to be delivered within seven days of the order.
A spokesperson of DataWind tells The Mobile Indian that the people who had booked the tablet online would start receiving the device in January. However, the spokesperson didn’t elaborate reasons behind the delay.
It may be recalled that the Aakash tablet had sold out in less than a week after its online release. DataWind is still accepting pre-orders for the UbiSlate 7, which is an upgraded version of the Aakash tablet. The UbiSlate 7 is slated to launch in January next year. Meanwhile, there’s no update on when the Aakash tablet will be available in retail stores.
