25 Apr, 2012

DataWind has entered into a strategic partnership with Yahoo! India, to enable Yahoo! services on its Tablet Ubislate7+, which will be commercially launched on April 26, around three months behind schedule.

The Tablet will come pre-loaded with Yahoo! Cricket as the exclusive cricket application along with the Yahoo! Mail app and Yahoo! India homepage will be the default browser landing page for Ubislate7+.

Arun Tadanki, managing director, India & Southeast Asia, Yahoo! said, "The launch of Ubislate7+ will see a new wave of new-to-net users, using Internet for the very first time. Through this partnership, we will have the opportunity to bring Yahoo!'s premium content & communication experience to new internet users in a simple and intuitive way."

The partnership with DataWind aims to strengthen Yahoo!'s focus on 'the new-to-net user-base' in India.

Commenting on the partnership, Suneet Singh Tuli, CEO, DataWind said, "Through this partnership we look forward to facilitating the use of Yahoo's popular online content by people who have not been touched by the Internet revolution so far."

A couple of days back DataWind entered into a partnership with GetJar, (a free app store with over 2 billion downloads), to pre-install the GetJar app store on all DataWind Tablets.
