Tablet maker DataWind said that its UbiSlate7Cz and UbiSlate3G7 tablet will come bundled with 12 months of free unlimited internet browsing with Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd. (BSNL) in southern India.
The device maker has also entered into a retail partnership with UniverCell, the electronics retail player in southern India, to market the company's UbiSlate tablets.
"The relationship with UniverCell significantly expands our distribution by adding a significant player from the retail channel to support our tablet sales," Suneet Singh Tuli, chief executive at DataWind, said in a statement.
Until now, DataWind products were primarily available to the customer through e-commerce and direct-to-consumer channels such as TV home-shopping.
"Association with BSNL for bundled internet service to our customers is a major breakthrough. This unique partnership validates our technology and belief in low cost internet connectivity sans barriers" Tuli added.
The company will now offer its entire product range of UbiSlate Tablet PCs and PocketSurfer Smartphones available off-the-shelf at UniverCell's more than 500 retail outlets spread across southern India.
