When the tablet pc’s got popular on the market the main are where it was popularly accepted was among the youth and youngsters in India are eager to buy a tablet but the cheapest one Aakash didn’t reach all the buyers because more than 3 million pre orders were booked since October 2011. Despite complaints galore, Datawind is yet to meet the demand and the next best version with a less price tag and within the affordable price range of millions of Indians was what EKEN Leopard should aim for.
Since Aakash’s online pre-booking led to serious concerns among the youngsters whose complaints are available on our website, it is high time Aakash 2 that was supported by the government should either increase shipments or return money enabling buyers go for better and easily available models in the market.
