Datawind Ubisurfer review

Price when reviewed

To be fair to Datawind, the UbiSurfer works right out of the box, and for the internet access alone might be worth considering as mobile email and internet tool for very light users – there’s definitely the nugget of a good idea here.

The problem is not with the idea, however, but the hardware and software it’s running on – it simply isn’t powerful enough to deliver the modern web in a convincing way.
