Govt puts Aakash tablet deal on hold
Zeebiz Bureau

New Delhi: Days after the big bang launch of the Aakash tablet, the government may refuse to extend the letter of credit to Montreal-based DataWind, the makers of the world's cheapest computer tablet.

As per reports, the HRD ministry may not extend the letter of credit to Datawind after a series of faults were detected, owing to which buyers have largely dumped the product.

The ministry is also looking for vendors other than Datawind, reports added.

If experts of the industry are to be believed, technical flaws, no hands-on experience, and the total cost of procuring it make the much-hyped gadget a disappointment for the buyers.

The after-sales reports of the Aakash Tablet are extremely disappointing and those who have bought the low cost gadget have only one reason to be happy- they are the privileged early users of the gadget.
 
According to experts, the new version will have a look similar to the Chinese tablets and have the SIM card option.
