We are sorry to report that we’ve had to increase the Retail Price of the UbiSlate 7+ tablet to Rs.3,499 recently. We have been significantly impacted by the 26% drop in the value of the Rupee against the U.S. Dollar over the last year. Since a significant component of the parts incorporated in the device is imported, our costs have gone-up by the same amount. While we have continued to deliver at a loss, with the hope that the value of the Rupee will recover in the international markets, unfortunately now this does not seem likely in the short term.
The UbiSlate 7+ is still the least expensive smartphone tablet computer in the market. Our price increase is only 15%, while our competitors have increased theirs by almost 30%. Competitive products are not only many thousands of Rupees above the price of our product, but generally they don’t offer Smartphone functionality. No smartphone is available in the market with a touch-screen and Android operating system anywhere near the price of the UbiSlate7+, so this remains by far the best deal in the market – anywhere in the world!
With our patented breakthrough web delivery platform and special offer through Aircel, delivering anytime/anywhere internet connectivity at only Rs.98, this is the only product delivering the real web across all corners of India. We hope you’ll continue to take advantage of this compelling proposition and help make India’s internet revolution a reality.</>
