The rise of Swipe Telecom and the story of Shripal Gandhi

The rise of Swipe Telecom and the story of Shripal Gandhi


Last week, the CEO of Swipe Telecom, Mr. Shripal Gandhi came to Symbiosis Institute of Management Studies to deliver a keynote address during its 2 day management fest BARCODE. He had decided to speak on how Swipe Telecom is about to change the landscape of the Tablet industry in India, yet much of his impromptu talk was on a topic close to his heart, entrepreneurship. His desire to not only lead but inspire other young minds to do the same as he has, was evident through what he spoke.

From an initial handful of 5 people last year, to over 100 employees delivering the best of sleek budget tabs to Indians, Swipe has come a long way in its last 13 months.

For a man whose first love is technology and who spoke of the concept of one life to live, Mr. Gandhi seemed to have embraced himself to face any challenge that life has to throw at him. He spoke of his initial education in India and his days doing post graduation in the US, followed by his stint at a technology company Unidym where he worked on Nanotechnology.

The launch and the subsequent failing of the Aakash tablet was a significant event in the lives of the Swipe team. Born from those roots of research, they realized the potential for low cost tablets in India that needed to be introduced to the masses in a better way. The Swipe 3D tablets launched last year is testimony enough. Customer is king. Original packaging and cooler designs seem to have therefore become the forte of Swipe tablets, as is evident by the launch of their latest product in alliance with MTV, India. Swipe has today managed to take a large chunk of tablets sold through online portals and is on target to be a prominent player in the Indian market.


A short but brilliant video described this journey in vivid detail.


But on taking stage, Mr. Gandhi chose to talk about something deeper than just what he does. He told the students about why does it. And the audience was hooked.

Be Smart he said. Don’t just follow what is told. Think. Plan your next move. And the next one after that.

Ask the right questions and prepare yourself to accept the probability of the impossible. He gave examples of Redbus founder Phanindra Sama and Steve Jobs. People who realized the art of making their world a reality. “One life to live”, he repeated again.

This very passion has today led him to be the CEO of Swipe, which by his own admission is valued at Rs 100 Cr plus.

But before he opened the floor for questions, he fielded one of his own. A famous question asked to John Scully, the Ex CEO of Apple. “Why do the top startups come from Silicon Valley?”, to which his reply was that the kids there are given the license to fail. Overburdening young minds with unnecessary pressures will take their freedom away and rob them of their ideas.

Some of the important questions asked to him by the students and their answers.

Q To come up with an idea for a startup, how do you do soul searching, like you mentioned?

Shripal: To realize that nothing comes for free, you must ask yourself ‘What are you willing to give up for it?’. Steve Jobs and Buddhism often said the same. They teach you the importance of looking within. Only then, does an idea come to you.

Q What can you do to save your idea from being stolen?

Shripal: If it’s not good enough, it won’t get stolen. (laughs). But on a serious note, Non Disclosure agreements can be signed by all parties privy to the concept. It is a common practice at events where young minds showcase ideas.

Q Your vision is to empower the masses with the low cost tablets, yet how do you manage your technology side, since it is as important to keep it at low cost as well?

Shripal: Our product planning and production phase is one of the fastest in the world. From conception to final delivery, we take 40-45 days. It is all a matter of planning and licensing the right technologies.

On that note, a wonderful talk came to end. In one Swipe, he won over the hearts of the students and the entire audience. A glimpse into the mind of the entrepreneur.

6 Drawbacks of Budget Tablet

John: Oh man! Tablet…!!! Congrats buddy. So, is it promotion or increment???

Neal: What!!!

John: New, shiny, latest tablet. It must be expensive. So… promotion or increment?

Neal: Haven’t you ever heard anything called “BUDGET  TABLETS”!!!

Yes. Today, being techno savvy does not cost you your fortune. Not anymore. Today we have a whole lot of tablets that not only serve us with the latest up to date technology but also allow us to enjoy it without hurting our pockets.  Indian tablet market has witness a boom as a result of which the latest technology can be enjoyed by all kind of users, within all ranges of cost. Therefore, it equally attracts the business users as well as low cost customers. The concept of budget tablets has splendored the market for the user.  It has narrowed the gap between the rural and urban techno demands, the age and gender usage curve and business and entertainment based convention. 80% of the tablet market is dominated by budget tablets. As a result of which sales of tablet in India are expected to at least double this year to 6 million, the market’s third year of growth.

Apart from all these good things there are some issue with the budget tablet which the user are facing and here we are listing the most common issues that arises with the budget tablets.

1. Tablet get heated

The most common issue that catches our attention is that at times it becomes uncomfortably warm to hold them. Or what we say that they become hot.  Usually this happens while playing HD games or continuous long running or the tablet is running in vain like trying to find GPS or Wi-Fi. To deal with this, do not get tablet laminated fully. Ensure proper cooling. Switch off when it is not in use. Avoid keeping it on sleep mode, if not necessary. To savor the budget tablet efficiently, effectively and to ensure longer life, one just needs to take care of it properly. So, just a little bit of tending and you will enjoy the amity of your slab let.

2. Short Battery life

How long you can use your tablet is nearly as important as what it is you do while using it. A short battery life could mean the difference between your slim, sexy tablet with true mobility or carrying around various clunky power adapters, which isn’t nearly as sexy. So here comes the battery life in to limelight. Everybody wants 1080 pi of HD video streaming with full luminosity. And watch it till the very “the end”. Battery life is heavily reliant on the brightness of the tablet’s display and different sensors running. For example, wireless connection activity. The problem surface in, particularly, in case of the 7 inch tablets. So to ensure a long battery life, battery more than 3500AH is recommended. Turn off the tablet when not in use. Keep the sensors off so as to avoid unnecessary wastage of battery. Do not run unneeded apps in the back ground.

3. Tablet get hanged

When there is ever growing pool of apps with the fountain of selection streaming out, only the fools won’t be tempted. It’s always a craving, one become greedy of apps. And why not? What good your slate can be of if cannot satisfy the “apps desire”!!! In case of budget tablet, if one runs too many apps it gets hang or other performance issues float up. Generally this happens when tab is supported with Wi-Fi or internet. So try to use one app or may be two at a time. And do make sure that unwanted apps are not drumming your slate.

4. Camera not so good

“Beauty lies in the eyes of beholder” and in case of tablets, it’s the cameras. Camera is one of the first things to dig for in case of budget tablets because you are not dish up with lot many options and also quality won’t be exceptionally fascinating. But you still be able to get your”wow” and “Aww” moments. Generally the available option is 2MP and one has to test out various options available as per one’s need.

5. Poor touch screen quality

Thinking about the touch, brings to my mind the old anecdote of King Midas who can turn anything he touches into gold. First it seemed to be a stroke of luck but later turned out to be curse. Still thinking… me too. Do not worry. All the budget tablets do not do this to you. Most of the budget tablets have good touch quality that gives quick response and are easy on fingers. Some are so good that they give you the chance to cherish effortless navigation. But the problem comes with the HD games or videos and large number of on running apps. At times, games like Angry birds or Fruit Ninja do not give the smooth touch experience. They simply lag. So it is advisable to explore and experiment the touch while you are in the shop.  So, don’t be shy. Go to the sales executive. After all, why are they there for? Jokes apart, but try different tabs with various applications of your need, if possible.

6. Short life span

My hard earned money!!! Buying a tablet??? How long will it be utilizable? Life span of tablet is at times considered as an unsolvable mystery. But honestly, it is not. Most of the bud tab (as I like to call them )do not ditch before a year. If taken care properly, they can even last to one and a half or maybe more. So follow these steps and you won’t have your tablet using experience “budgeted”.
