It’s not only about the tablets – it’s about connectivity.

The company offers wireless access that overcomes “bandwidth limitations of cellular networks by accelerating content delivery by factors of 10x to 30x – resulting in a superior mobile web experience at a lower cost“.

Time will tell, but his company’s efforts seem to be working:

Between January and September of 2013, Datawind sold 431,793 tablets in India, slightly less than Samsung’s 507,140 and well above Apple with 223,902, according to Indian research firm Cyber Media
