    Get lost DataWind..I have had nightmare’s experience using the Ubiserfer Tab.

    I bought before Datawind’s Ubiserfer 7? mini laptop. It is a total
    useless crap. Useless company brings all the useless Chinese products
    to India on their own brand to waste Indian consumer’s money. Get lost
    Datawind. You can not get after sales support at all from this company.
    It is my own experience.
