DataWind join hands with Spice Retail

DataWind, maker of akash and Ubislate tablets has partnered with Spice Retail, the largest mobile device retail chain in northern India.

Adding this distribution partner increases DataWind’s reach to customers in northern India and expands its national retail footprint to more than 1,000 sales locations.

In the first phase of the roll out, Spice Retail will make DataWind products available in the national capital territory of New Delhi and soon thereafter expand the distribution to cover its entire chain of 320+ stores spread across Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan.

Commenting on the new partnership, Suneet Singh Tuli, president & CEO, DataWind said, “Spice Retail is one of the oldest and most trusted names in mobile device retail. We are happy to have them join our progressive journey towards bridging the digital divide. Through this relationship we hope that customers across the northern India will have greater and faster access to our enabling products.”

Krishna Kumar, CEO, Spice Retail said “It gives us great pleasure to work with DataWind who already have strong technology credentials. Their new products like Ubislate fill a void in the market for reliable and yet still affordable products.We hope this association right before the festive season will be very fruitful for both of us.”

This new partnership comes close on the heels of DataWind’s partnership with another major retail chain in southern India and is expected to deliver significant growth to the company’s overall sales volume in India.

DataWind will now offer its entire product range of UbiSlate Tablet PCs and PocketSurfer Smartphones available off-the-shelf at Spice Retail’s HotSpots.
