Talking about its recently launched low-cost UbiSlate 7+ and 7c tablets, Datawind CEO Sunil Singh Tuli said that the company had received around 3.4 million pre-orders for the UbiSlate 7+ tablet. And, the delivery has been taking place since April 26.
As far as the UbiSlate 7c model is concerned, the company has started taking pre-orders beginning the last week of June, and the delivery for the same will begin by the middle of this month, said Tuli.
He also said that the company is planning to introduce the Android ICS-based UbiSlate tablets in August. “And, if IIT Bombay agrees in the future, we might also come up with the Android ICS-powered Aakash tablet,” Tuli said.
