Aakash Tablet Preordering Crosses 2 million

While Aakash Tablet’s future will be decided by end of this month, the company is having a ball as the pre-booking order numbers have now exceeded 2 million.

Suneet Singh Tuli, President & CEO of DataWind Writes:

“While industry analysts were forecasting only 250,000 tablet computers for the Indian market in 2012, our pre-booking rate is now averaging over 100,000 individual enduser sales each day and have cumulatively exceeded over two million.  With tens of thousands of calls daily to our call-centre, we are unable to adequately respond to all the queries we are receiving”

Very recently, DataWind announced an app contest for students inviting app developers to build apps on Android 2.2 version the the top five applications submitted will be awarded a prize money of Rs. 1 lakh each.
