Quick Start Guide
Charging the Battery
Your device has a built-in battery. Before using the device for the first time, you must charge
the battery for at least 6-8 hours. Use only Datawind approved chargers. Unauthorized
chargers may cause damage to your device and/or may lead to overcharging and/or explosion.
When your battery is low, the battery level indicator will be very thin. If the battery level
reaches a critical level, the device will automatically turn off. Recharge the battery to continue
use. Recharge the battery by first inserting the cable into the charging head and then plugging
the head into a standard AC power outlet. After the charging is complete, unplug the charging
head. Note that it is best to charge the device at room temperature. It is not necessary to wait
until the battery is completely drained before recharging, you may charge at any time. Also,
the battery will maintain its lifespan longer if it is not left uncharged for periods of more than 2
weeks at a time.
Power on
Press and hold “ ” button for 3 seconds to power on the device. It can take up to a minute
and half to boot the system. After system boot is completed, it will enter Android desktop.
Slide the lock icon “ ” to the right to unlock the screen to start to use the device.
Power Save mode and Lock Screen
You can turn off the screen to save power by quickly pressing the power “ ” button. The
screen will turn to Lock Screen mode. Repeat the process to reactivate the device.

” button for 3 seconds. A menu will appear confirming that you would
Choose your desired option by tapping the corresponding item on the screen or Tap Cancel
to exit to previous operation.
Note: When the device’s battery is low, it will send continuous alerts and will shut down
automatically when the battery is empty. If the device fails to power on, please plug it into
an outlet to first check if the battery is empty. Please recharge the battery for at least one
minute before attempting to restart the device.
Using the UbiSlate7CZ as a phone
Your UbiSlate7CZ is also a phone which works on quad band GSM 850/900/1800/1900Mhz
frequency spectrums. It comes with Bluetooth connectivity to pair with headsets and/or
also will work through speakerphone or headset connections. You must insert your valid
GSM SIM card into the SIM card slot while the device is powered off in order for it to
function correctly. Dialing, disconnecting and contact lists function like your standard
mobile phone.
Inserting a SIM Card
SIM cards would be supplied by your local phone operator and it is the use of these SIM cards
that allows you access to the network for surfing the web and to use the UbiSlate7CZ as a Phone.
There is a SIM card slot at the top of the device beside the MicroSD Card Slot. Insert the SIM
Card so that the notch enters the device first and the gold contacts are facing the back of the
device and the UbiSlate7CZ logo.
Bluetooth Pairing
Pairing your UbiSlate7CZ to your Bluetooth headset may differ for every headset; however the
premise of searching for Bluetooth devices by the UbiSlate7CZ is fairly universal. A pairing system
will then usually require passwords entered on both devices to finalize the pairing. Usually this
pairing will only have to be performed once.
Orientation Sensor Setting
The device contains a sensor that will automatically change the orientation of most screens
as you rotate the device. The sensor works best when the device is rotated perpendicular to
the ground. i.e.: when the device is held upright and not flat on its back. The Orientation
sensor can be activated or deactivated in the Setting menu: Setting >Display >Auto-rotate
screen. Check the box if you want to activate the sensor or uncheck the box to deactivate it.
(See picture below)
Using the Touch screen
Your device comes with a responsive touch screen which works as follows:
●Tap: To ac vate an on-screen item (e.g., application icons, buttons, menu items, and the
letter/symbols of the on-screen keyboard), simply tap them with your fingertip or compatible
●Double Tap: Quickly tap the screen twice on a webpage or other application screen to zoom
(the application must support the double-tap/zoom function). Within the browser, doubletapping a webpage section will cause the browser to zoom and fit that section to the width of
the screen.
●Drag and drop: Drag an on-screen item to change its position (e.g., an application icon on the
home screen). To drag an item, touch and hold it for a moment, then without lifting your
fingertip/stylus, move your fingertip/stylus on the screen until the item reaches its target
●Swipe: Swipe up/down on the screen to scroll through a list. On some screens, you may be
able to swipe left/right to change the view. To swipe, touch the screen and then quickly move
your fingertip/stylus across the screen without lifting your fingertip/stylus. Do not pause on
the screen with your fingertip/stylus at the initial point of contact or you may accidentally drag
an item instead.
●Tap and hold: Some on-screen items have an alternate action if you touch and hold it (e.g.,
opening an alternate menu, or to activate the drag function). To touch and hold an item, touch
the item and do not lift your fingertip/stylus until the action occurs. Tapping and holding an
icon will allow you to move it once it appears large.
Note: It is very important that you do not touch the screen with a body part or any foreign
object while switching on the device as this may interfere with the proper functioning of the
device. To avoid damage to the touch screen, do not use sharp tools. Do not allow the touch
screen to come into contact with other electrical devices, or water. For optimal use, remove
the screen protection film before using your device.
Using MicroSD Cards
MicroSD Cards are storage spaces used to transport files from one device to another. This
device supports many different types of cards up to 32GB in size, however not every MicroSD
card will work in the device.
To insert the MicroSD card, simply push it into the device (it can only fit in one way, with the
gold contacts facing up towards the side with the touch screen). To remove the MicroSD card,
you must first go into System Settings (by tapping “ ” shortcut, then tap “Storage” and scroll
down on the right hand side until you see Unmount SD card. Accept the Unmount and then
push down on the top of the MicroSD card and it will pop back up to be removed.
