Many people who had pre-booked the commercial version of the Aakash tablet, the UbiSlate have complained they are yet to receive the tablet, while DataWind has gone ahead and launched a new model. The Hindu Business Line reports that DataWind intends to clear all pending Aakash paid orders in six weeks.
Suneet Singh Tuli, CEO of DataWind has been quoted saying that the non-SIM variants of the original Aakash will be cleared in the next ten days, while the models shipping with the SIM slot will be cleared in four to six weeks.
The original Aakash featured a 366MHz processor, 256 MB of RAM, 2GB of internal storage and has Wi-Fi connectivity. Additionally, it runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread and users can download apps from the GetJar app store, though it does not have access to the Google Play store.
