  1. As per the instructions provided in your website, I’ve submitted the registration form and got the response “Thank You. We have received your information. An email would be sent to you shortly with your UbiSlate Booking ID”. Unfortunately, I’m yet to receive any mail or booking id or not even an acknowlegement from your end. Please let me know what exactly is happening !?

    Thank you and looking forward to your reply on the same

    1. Some times delay may happen from the company (Datawind) side in generating and informing the booking id. However, please do check junk/spam folder of your emails, the email might have gone into that folder.Otherwise, you can drop a follow up email directly to DataWind company for that.

  2. I’ve registered via your website for booking an Aakaash UBISlate. But unfortunately I’m yet to receive the respective booking id. Please update me regarding the current status of the same.

    Thank you

    1. Pushkar – if you got the booking id, then your product is booked. Must check in your junk/spam folder, in case email has reached there. Otherwise, write to company to get the confirmation.

  5. There seems to be a lot of issues with the Aakash tablet site. First of all the site is down most of the time, the order form does not work on all the browser, most of the time it gives error.
    on day one it only has the email ID and Phone number, but not they have again changed it to add the address as well. after submitting the form it show thankyou message and confirn the ID, but in mail instead of UBIslate details it gives detail config for the earlier lower version of Aakash tablet :-)
    people has booked it using both the forms and most of them have still not received the booking ID by mail. aslo, the toll free number is always busy. There is no way to track your booking and most of us dont know when we would be actually receiving it. Not sure why they had not done proper testing of the site, since it was so abvious there is going to be huge traffick on this site and its going to be difficult to keep track of all this issues.
    Hope we would receive the quality tablet without any issues. :-) fingers crossed!

    1. Yogesh – you are right. Company’s sites are indeed getting unaccessible many times owing to heavy loads. Better to always get in touch with the company at their official email and get the confirmation of your order (you can also try to call them at their toll free number but in case it is not reachable, you can write to them).

    1. Ajay – Best thing is to get in touch with the company for the clarification. It could be case of phishing but then it could be a genuine repeated email from the company’s side. i heard due to excessive loads, company server are indeed getting into troubles many times. So it could be an outcome of the same.

  11. Dear Mr Singh,
    I had PREBOOKED UBISLATE in 2012 with ADVANCE payment and waited for 1 Year. They asked me to upgrade my choice in Jan 2013 which I did and they again asked me to pay upon delivery, which is RIDICULOUS…They DO NOT READ E mails or probably don’t understand English.. I am overseas and they have no Contact number to call.

    NOW I have mailed them twice to REFUND… NO RESPONSE…Seems they have gobbled up the money from SEVERAL customers like me…. Seems I have to take them to COURT !!!! For the info of all who are interested in UBISLATE..!!! BEWARE
