Your one place stop for all the technology news related to tablets like aakash and other that have created a buzz.

Aakash tablet booking status

Aakash tablet booking for the upgraded version has already been started. The tablet seems to be sold out for the months of may and june however you can prebook it for the month of july yet. The delay in the delivery has been a major drawback for the vendors and a frustration for the customers. I see everyone posting their booking ids to know the status of their delivery. As of today datawind has not yet made any arrangements to check aakash tablet pre booking status. The only option left for people is to flood datawind support with queries which datawind have apparentely failed to cater.

The vendors have been promising priority delivery to those who pay beforehand for the tablet, however all of those who payed in advance and those who didn’t seem to be suffering with delivery issues. The company keeps on advertizing a 7 day delivery but all the promises seem to have not been kept. The facts say that over 1.8 million bookings have been made for the tablet but not more than 2% of them were  delivered, moreover the lack of support makes people go mad.

The stimuli  to aakash tablet’s launch was so much that datawind was forced to install three new production units in order to satisfy public demand. What made people go crazy behind aakash was the cheap price tag and i suppose that the makers didn’t anticipate so much of the public response which is why they failed to deliver what they promised which caused late delivery issues and all. The most prominent problem for the people who have already booked the tablet is the inability to check their order status. Datawind should have incorporated some means to allow people to check their order tracking which is suppose was not a difficult task.

If you are planning to book the tablet you must know a few things:

1) Datawind assures priority delivery to people who prepay but after having investigated it seems it makes no difference whether you pay first or on delivery, you will have to face late delivery problems.

2) Their is no tracking system installed on their official website so you would not be able to track the status of booking of your tablet.

3) it is very unlikely that the support team responds to your query . After you have made your booking , the only option left to know the status is to contact datawind directly. You will have to wait indefinitely to receive a response from them.

Finally there are not too many news of people receiving the upgraded aakash . Once we get them we will bring them to you.

 

UPDATE: The only ways left to check the status of your booking-check it out

Hello Shiv , at this time the deliveries of the tablets are at a good pace. If people at datwind called you then most probably you will be receiving it within 10 days at the most. This is what many people have reported.
Moreover , if you are out of station you need not cancel you order of akash tablet. It will be safe with the courier people until you return back.
