The UbiSlate 7 tablet
Tried ordering for the Aakash tablet, today? We did and soon after received an e-mail stating the price of the tablet, which much to our surprise was slated as Rs.2,999 and not Rs.2,500 (Aakash tablet). Simply put, it was the UbiSlate 7 that we were being offered and not the Aakash tablet. Most importantly, and like we've been pointing out in our reports, the Aakash tablet is not commercially available for purchase by single individuals.

The very aim of the Aakash tablet is to make quality education and technology accessible to the masses who cannot afford it. So, if you're a single buyer, you may well have to wait for the commercial version of the tablet i.e. the UbiSlate 7, which, if you've pr-ordered already, should reach you sometime late next month.
