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.
