Aakash Tablet creates a world record – 14 Lakh units booked in 2 weeks

Aakash-The cheapest Android tablet receives 14 lakh ordersEver since it was put up for sale on December 15, 2011, the booking for the upgraded version of Aakash Tablet, UbiSlate has touched 14 lakh units. Yes. You read it correct… 14 lakh units of UbiSlate (upgraded version of Aakash Tablet) have been booked within 2 weeks since it went up for sale. The delivery for the booked Aakash (UbiSlate) Tablets is expected to start from the last week of January 2012. The first version of Aakash Tablet was available for Rs. 2499 while the upgraded UbiSlate is available for Rs. 2999. And this premium of Rs. 500 is a cracking deal since UbiSlate has double the computing power of Aakash Tablet, runs on Android 2.3 and supports GPRS too.

It’s interesting to note that Apple iPad sold only 10 lakh units when it was first launched in April 2010 and 80 lakh units within 80 days of its launch. Another thing worth noticing is that the cheapest version of Apple iPad2 is available for approximately Rs. 29,000 while an Aakash/UbiSlate Tablet at Rs. 2999 is anyday worth a try.

Update : Owing to the soaring demand of Aakash and UbiSlate Tablets, DataWind, the maker of Aakash/UbiSlate Tablet shall setup 3 new factories in Cochin, Noida and Hyderabad. The firm currently just has one factory in Hyderabad with Quad, which manufactures the display panel for Aakash Tablet
