In the Indian tech market, DataWind is already undergoing a tough phase due to the staggered supply of the Aakash-2 tablets. The tablet production issue has reached the point where Government of India may consider to discontinue the production of India’s first inborn tablet project. The reports suggest that DataWind until now, has supplied only 17,100 tablets out of the total 1 lakh tablets order by the Indian Government.
Presently, Indian Government has put on hold the Aakash-3 tablet project. However, it still remains to be seen how DataWind manages to deliver the Aakash-2 tablets that have bee ordered while juggling with the supply of the newly launched UbiSlate 7C+ Edge tablet PC on time.
