Asia Bizz: Not much time has passed after the launch of the world’s cheapest tablet Aakash and customers of the low-priced device have started pouring in non-satisfactory reviews. A host of complaints have been received from Aakash tablet users across the consumer forums which has revealed that a lot of features has been left incomplete by the makers of this tablet PC – Datawind.
Some of the users even shared their complaints and said that he was instructed to charge the tablet for four hours and tried to switch it on after four hours. But the tablet just showed the main screen and the user could not do anything further.
After several trials, the tablet could not be switched on and the user even complained that he did not get any feedback from the customer care team. Apart from the several shortcomings reported, reports of defective OS and poor battery retention capacity have also surfaced.
The HRD Ministry are now giving a second thought over giving the letter of credit to Datawind since they have received several complaints from the user community. Many of the users are also on the verge of dumping the gadget. The government is now in talks to shelve the entire project due to the bad performance. With this string of woes, the run of Aakash tablet in India is surely going to be a rough patch.
