UniverCell To Sell DataWind Products With 12 Months Of Free Internet By BSNL In S.India

DataWind, maker of Aakash, Ubislate tablets and  PocketSurfer Smartphones , today announced a retail partnership with UniverCell, the largest electronics retail player in Southern India. Under this arrangement, UniverCell will now sell entire product range of Datawind off-the-shelf at their more than 500 retail outlets spread across southern India. Before this partnership, DataWind products were primarily available to the customer through ecommerce and direct to consumer channels such as TV home-shopping.



DataWind has also entered into partnership with BSNL to provide bundled interne access on its UbiSlate tablets. As stated by DataWind in its press statement, its web delivery platform, offered on the UbiSurfer browser delivers a fast web experience on even congested or rural 2 G mobile networks. Covered by over 18 U.S. and international patents, the Company’s proprietary acceleration technology reduces bandwidth consumption by 20 times on average for basic internet browsing, while delivering a faster and more broadly accessible internet access.

Speaking on the occasion Suneet Singh Tuli, CEO DataWind said, “We are delighted to find great strength in UniverCell as our retail partners and we view this association as a first significant step towards making our products available across the country. This relationship significantly expands our distribution by adding a significant player from the retail channel to support our tablet sales.

“Association with BSNL for bundled internet service to our customers is a major breakthrough. We’re happy to see that our partner in connectivity – BSNL, shares our aspiration of ubiquitous connectivity for all. With affordable technology and free internet, we are now one step closer in our quest of bridging the digital divide. This unique partnership validates our technology and belief in low cost internet connectivity sans barriers”, said Tuli.

Headquartered in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, Datawind is credited with the developing the world’s lowest cost tablet computers and has received recognition on several prestigious platforms including – the United Nation at the launch of Aakash2 by UN Secretary General, Ban Ki Moon; as a ‘classroom revolutionary’ by the Forbes Magazine’s 2012 Impact 15 List; and among the world’s 50 Smartest Companies by the MIT Technology Review. DataWind is working with several governments and not-for-profit organizations to help them achieve their goals of elevating the quality of education and bridging the digital divide.


  1. Do not buy Datawind or Akash or Ubislate tablets.They provide very poor service. If you contact customer care service they will give the contact numbers which are not in use or invalid numbers.Before buying this product please check very bad reviews about this product or company and Indian government.Why cant media spread the same to public.
