(TSX: DW), maker of the Aakash and Ubislate tablets, and a leading provider of wireless web access products and services in India, announced today that it has partnered with Spice Retail, the largest mobile device retail chain in Northern India.

In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
