Datawind has announced that they are now supplying units of Aakash II to IIT Bombay.
Retail launch is expected to take place sometime next month.
The company said:
Supplies are on to IIT Bombay. In the next few weeks, it should be launched. I do not have the exact date, but HRD Minister has said he wants to launch on the anniversary date which is October 5.
The company added about the millions of bookings that have already been made for this Tablet:
Out of 55 lakh orders, 4 to 5 per cent were pre-paid bookings. May be in a week or 10 days, all the pre-paid will be done. Then we will focus on pre-bookings. We are giving them offers to upgrade to Android 4.4 (not sure what 4.4 means here!) version.
