Datawind, the maker of Ubislate and first three versions of Aakash tablet, has silently introduced an improved version of Ubislate 7Cz which was launched earlier this year.
Curiously, the original Ubislate 7Cz is yet to be made available in the market. Infact, many online retailers have recently started taking pre-orders for the original Ubislate 7Cz for Rs 5,799. However, the improved version is now being offered by Datawind itself for Rs 5,999 (final price Rs 6,299).
But if you are thinking to buy the older Ubislate 7Cz as it is Rs 200 cheaper then think again as there is a lot of difference between the two. For instance, the older version comes with Android ICS operating system against Android 4.1 of the newer version. Also, as compared to 4 GB internal storage, the upgraded Ubislate 7Cz has 8 GB of internal memory. Also the new version comes with 1 GB RAM against 512 MB of the older model.
Other than those there seems to be not much difference between the two versions. So like the older model, the new Ubislate 7Cz has a 7 inch capacitive touchscreen with 800×480 pixels resolution, 1.2 GHz dual core processor, dual camera (VGA front, 2 MP rear), WiFi, Bluetooth, and 32 GB expandable memory.
Currently, the upgraded Ubislate 7Cz is available through Datawind’s website. The company is promising to deliver the tablet within one week if you pay online and if you pay through demand draft or Cheque, you will have to wait for two weeks. Cash on delivery option is also available but for that also Datawind is said to take two weeks’ time to deliver the tablet.
It is to be noted that the fourth generation Aakash 4 tablet is set to come in January next year and probably it would not be manufactured by Datawind which was criticized heavily in the past for the poor quality and non availability of the previous versions of Aakash tablet. Also, as per the proposed features, the Aakash 4 is speculated to be a block-buster Android tablet in the low-end segment.
