14 lakh Aakash Tablets booked; how to get yours

Aakash; a Made in India $35 $50 Android tablet just crossed a huge milestone with over 14 lakh (1.4 million) bookings in just 2 weeks. That means they are booking 1,00,000 tablets everyday according to Datawind, the manufacturers of Aakash Tablet PC. This booking is even much higher than the world’s first Tablet Apple’s iPad. Apple sold around 10 lakh iPads in the first 4 weeks. And since the demand for this $50 tablet is continuously increasing, so the Datawind is planning to set up 3 more manufacturing plants in India in Cochin, Noida and Hyderabad.

Well the only reason behind such huge demand is the price of this tablet. These days who’s owns a PC at home can easily afford a Rs.2500 tablet but seriously this Tablet is not at all going to give any competition to any of the high-end Tablets like Apple’s iPad or Sansung Galaxy Tab. A person who’s planning to buy an iPad won’t drop his idea just because a $50 tablet is there in the market.

How to book your Aakash Tablet?

Currently there are two models of Aakash tablet available for Pre-Booking. One is the Aakash (Ubislate 7) which is available now but completely ‘Sold Out’. This is the Wi-Fi only model of this tablet with Arm11-366Mhz microprocessor, 2100 mAh battery and Android 2.2. This model is for Rs.2500.

    1. @Shravani: The tablet booking details were published by a blogger with some research to help book users book tablets. This was because it the process to book tablets was unclear. Other than that we do not have any connection with Akash tablet service or followup on delivery.
