Customer buying this tablet will be able to access website without incurring any mobile internet charge if they access them through Datawind's patent UbiSurfer browser

installed on it. However, they will need to pay data charges if they access it from other browsers.

When asked if it violates net neutrality principles, Tuli said, 'It is perfectly net neutral. We are not discriminating among websites. Customers can access any website through our patent UbiSurfer. We are working on an advertisement based revenue model as we now want to be known as company that provides free internet, not just as low cost device maker.'

He said UbiSurfer has technology that compresses data consumed while internet surfing and reduces cost of data.

'It is good for web access but experience will not pleasant for video streaming,' Tuli added.

The company is also ramping up its manufacturing capacity in India following increase of excise duty on mobile phones and tablets.

'We have set up assembly line that have capacity of making 2 lakh units per month. We are also in talks with contract manufacturer for setting up additional facility,' Tuli said.
