Pandigital, a company best known for their lower-priced Android tablets has been in the process of closing shop. In fact, back in July they had handed everything over to a liquidator in an attempt to pay off the creditors. And well, this move seems to be hurting some that may have recently purchased a device. Or more specifically, those who purchased a device and are now having trouble with said device. In short, you may as well set it aside or throw it away and try to forget ever making the purchase. One reader of The Digital Reader blog recently made an attempt to get service under warranty and was greeted with the following email message;
“You are receiving this email as you have recently been shipped a warranty replacement for a Pandigital product.
Please be advised that Pandigital, Inc (the ‘Company’), executed a General Assignment for the benefit of its creditors in favor of Credit Management Association on July 13, 2012 (the ‘General Assignment’). A general assignment is a common law means of concluding the affairs of an insolvent debtor as an alternative to the Chapter 7 bankruptcy process. Pandigital is currently in the process of liquidation by the Assignee.
Due to this liquidation process any further requests for warranty replacements cannot be honored.”
Bottom line, Pandigital is not going to help if you have one of their devices and it breaks. Sad, sad situation. To clarify, sad for any former customers having issues, not as much for Pandigital.
