Pandigital Officially Out Of Business, Does Not Plan On Honoring Existing Warranties In The Process

And another Android manufacturer bites the dust. Pandigital is a brand that may not be so familiar with most of you, but it’s a brand with a solid legion of customers. Despite its solid following, it had unfortunately succumbed to the dreary economy and signed most of its assets to creditors in order to better cope with its massive debt. During this transitional phase, there was slim hope that the company would at least try and offer support and warranties for its various products out there, but alas— it isn’t meant to be. Customers of various Pandigital products recently received the following email:

 

“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”.

 

So there you have it— there’s basically no support for the device moving forward which is a bummer. Hopefully most of you who happen to own a Pandigital product have already moved onto other alternatives like the Amazon Kindle Fire HD or Nexus 7 tablet in order to help get over the hopefully minor grief.

Today on the internets, various sites took it upon themselves and outed the newspaper ads that everybody likes to study on Thanksgiving, the day before the madness begins.
