World’s cheapest Tablet dream is fading again. This time DataWind has disturbed people by announcing the delay delivery of Aakash Tablet to buyers who booked it online in last week. The online booking of Aakash tablet was trigged by the company on 15 December with a promise of 7 days delivery. However, just in 5 days, Datawind had to suspend online booking of Aakash claiming ‘out-of-stock’ position. Now, company has announced that people, who make the online booking of Aakash, should expect the deliver in January 2012 but denied to state any reason behind such delay.

However, this is not the first time when company is derailed from its original plan.  Earlier company has been failed to stay by the promise to make Aakash available in retail stores by end of November. With the revised plan, Aakash is expected to hit retail showrooms not before February 2012.

The online booking of Aakash, which started on 15 December, was made open for everyone including students. However, this also came to many as surprise as company earlier promised that students can et the device only through their colleges.

But the failure and fatigue doesn’t end here; As oppose to their promise of 1 Lack delivery to Government, company managed to deliver only 10,000 devices till now.

Now, with repeated shuffle and differ, the whole idea of owning world’s cheapest Tablet is looking shaggy. It is being speculated that manufacturing a tablet in lots at such dirt-cheap cost may has become a daunting task for DataWind, resulting in repeated misalignment from its own plan way.

The online booking of Aakash went viral in just few days which, apparently, company didn’t expect. The overwhelming response made company to suspend the booking on just 5th day of opening the doors. Infact, hundreds of users have complained about non-receipt of the booking ID they were supposed to get after online booing of Aakash.

With al such change and development, the whole situation looks cloudy. This has not only raised the concerns about Aakash but also on the upgraded version of it – UbiSlate 7.

We have tried contacting DataWind on this matter but by this moment we haven’t got any response from then. Also, there is no official dates have been announced by the company to satisfy the bookings already recorded, besides to guess sometime in January next year.
