Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne recently visited the Canadian headquarters of technology-based company Datawind Inc founded by Suneet Singh Tuli.
“She wanted to learn about our R&D activities,” Suneet told Asia Samachar when asked the main purpose of the visit.
Wynne, the 25th premier and the first woman to serve in the role, had earlier visited Datawind Innovations’ manufacturing facility in Amritsar, Punjab, during her visit to India in February 2016.
During the visit, DataWind launched two new DroidSurfer 10-inch and 7-inch Netbooks, both of which come bundled with one year of free Internet access, the company said in a statement.
The Netbooks feature DataWind’s patented, cloud-based technology, which reduces bandwidth consumption by factors of over 10 to 30 times, resulting in an affordable, broadband-like Internet experience on any data network — even on 2G networks that remain prevalent in developing countries.
Headquartered in Mississauga, Ontario and traded as a publicly listed company on the Toronto Stock Exchange, DataWind is focused on bridging the digital divide through its breakthrough patented technologies, developed in Canada.
Datawind shot to fame some years ago when it developed for the Indian government the Aakash tablet, dubbed as world’s cheapest tablet.
