The original Aakash tablet as we all know was available on the Aakashtablet.com website with only cash on delivery option. Datawind, the company that is manufacturing the low cost Aakash tablet got overwhelming response, but since cash on delivery was the only option available they have reached the limits and have stopped getting more order. This is the reason why users are seeing the sold out option for Aakash tablet on the website.
But hold on there is some good news. The ordering process has become better with help from NCarry.com (Nimbuzz) who will now handle the online payment part on part of Datawind. This also means that Indian users will be order the tablet with multiple payment options.

The table that you see is the first version (UbiSlate 7) that comes with 366 MHz processor. This tablet was distributed among few students and those present when Aakash was launched. The review was bad, most of them found it to be too slow and this forced the manufacturers to delay the launch and to get in an upgraded version the UbiSlate 7+ which is powered by a 700 MHz processor and supports GPRS.
I have already pre-booked the UbiSlate 7+ and am sure many of you have done the same. Those who are happy with the original Aakash tablet configuration (without GPRS support) can buy using the link mentioned above.
