    will bump the price bigtime. then add a slightly faster processor & half a gig ram and you are nearly stepping on an 'usable' tablet's price.

    Desi tablets suck. That's it. Don't waste money on these.

    All I want is a tablet, which can be used to show a slideshow of the pics which I took on lets say a marriage party, and to play 480p vids.

    Can't a "Cortex A8 – 700 Mhz" tablet do that? :|

    I booked it a week back and just received an email with my booking id.

    Nice thing is the Aakash (no EDGE and lower spec) tablet seems to be selling with Cash on Delivery option.

    I hope same is available for the Ubislate7 that I booked (the higher spec one).

    Nokia 5230 is resistive touch screen. See the below wiki link for the difference between the two.
